My guesses are:

Green jersey (Sprinter):

1. Cavendish

2. Hushovd

3. Farrar

Polka Dot (mountain goat):

1. A. Schleck

2. Sastre

3. Levi

White (Best young rider):

1. Martin

2. ?

Yellow (GC)

1. Armstrong

2. Contador

3. Menchov

Cycling - 2009

2009 is off to a tough cycling start for me. Low miles, weather, and a virus have conspired to prevent me from building an adequate mileage base. So I will need to push it for the next few months to regain condition for the longer rides of late summer.

Too bad no coverage of the Giro. It would have been great viewing with the 100 year thingy and LA competing again.

The TdF is just around the corner and I can't wait for it to start. I received my TdF Guide from Velo News so I have something to read and drool over during June.

Keep Spinning.
