* For calculating final VDS points, I am disqualifying Danilo DiLuca starting on May 19, when he won the stage in Pinerolo. He tested positive the next day, and again a week later. HOWEVER! He won an earlier stage, and since I have zero information about his blood from that day, I will not disqualify that win.
* Congrats to Spot of Bother for winning the Pequeno Concurso, picking the top two podium steps and winning a tiebreaker with Perezbike, based on the number of Columbia stage wins. Spot had three, Perez two. Actual was five.
* Speaking of contests, Ch.Piti Fuentes, I am still holding your wool jersey from last year. Contact me with a mailing address soon before I start wearing it.
