Just so you know, I didn't accidentally get my caps button stuck. And with that out of the way, HOW CAN THERE POSSIBLY BE NO SPLIT TIMES!?!? 90 percent of the drama in a time trial, from the spectator's POV, comes from progress reports. Also, a number of riders like having them in order to manage their effort. So why isn't the ToC providing any? They've done a pretty impeccable job, as far as I can tell, up to now. But this is bad. Update [2006-2-22 16:37:58 by chris]: The ToC feed shows mile 6 splits, though nobody (VN, CN, even the ToC ticker) is reporting them. Maybe the ESPN replay will be more informative.
