While not flat by any means, I'm not sure the Giro di Missouri (so named in honor of the large Italian presence in St. Louis) will be won out on a road stage. There are certainly enough inclines to allow for decisive escapes, but no massive climbs. Which means today's hilly time trial should go a long way toward deciding the race. I'm not on travel after all, just tending to more sick family members, so how much I can participate remains to be seen. Anyway, it'll be more fun than another sprint in Spain. Enjoy!
Update [2007-9-13 13:29:7 by chris]: CN reports in the live thread that the UCI decided today to enforce a (new?) rule that extension bars must be parallel to the ground! Sucks for Levi, and the other "praying Landis" style riders.
