The World Championships are the flavor of the week in Cycling... certainly a good stopover on the way to the Fall Classics. And the Media is getting warmed up.
- Prof Wilcockson returns! His preview spends just enough time on Jeannie Longo to not be fairly considered generic.
- America has a new Amrstrong hero! We might even like this one.
- Soon-to-be-Davitamon Dominique Cornu took the U23 Time Trial.
- Two Argentines and a Brazilian failed blood tests with elevated hematocrit levels. Nobody I've heard of: Martin Garrido and Matias Medici of Argentina and Magno Nazaret of Brazil.
- Eurosport has the scoop on CSC packing its roster, in the forms of Cuesta, Gustov, Lungqvist. CN reports Stef Schumacher re-upped at Gerolsteiner too.
- Another ugly moment: the home of Luca Paolini was searched today in raids by Italian police in connection with Operacion Puerco.
