The top three teams in the 2006 Tour de France - Discovery (Lance's former team with George Hincapie and Paolo Salvodelli now leading in the general classification); CSC (Ivan Basso's team, now with Dave Zabriskie and Bobby Julich leading in the standings); and T-Mobile (Jan Ullrich's team, with Michael Rogers and Serhiy Honchar now leading in the standings) are still only 2 seconds apart in the overall team standings. It's going to be quite interesting to see how this team competition plays out, although it gets little attention in the press.
It's unfortunate that team standing isn't a bigger deal. So many teams come dedicated to one rider - GC or sprinter. To have a team with the kind of depth to have every team member doing well is something special in a race this difficult!Post a Comment
