The rooster crows...

and has alot of armchair DS's eating crow. The Chicken's clean. All that's happened is we've seen what happens when you take EPO out of the Tour. Suddenly the muscular guys can't climb mountains. Not much of a surprise. You've got to be a starve-yourself-skeleton like the Chicken to kick ass up the steep parts.

And kick ass he has. Suddenly its not enough to be a great TT'er and a good climber. What an awesome sight, to see a pure climber nullify the flat-landers and carve out minute after minute in the hills.

Rasmussen's awesome. It's a joy to see somebody come along and force us all to rewrite what seemed to be accepted strategy. It's a new era.
