    Anyone know why Rock Racing pulled back the Operations Puerto rides that were previously scheduled to ride (Hamilton, Botero, Sevilla)?

    Ball is trying to create some buzz..Now, more peeps will talk about RR.

    Would be great to see Cipo in a pirate themed skinsuit in the Solvang time trial next to the Specialized angel.

    Between Freire, Boonen, Bettini, Cancellara, and Millar, there are a lot of World Championship wins in this race. 9 total if you include the one Millar was stripped of.
