  1. The Giro is too hard for Legstrong, he learned that in 2009! Too bad because I'd love to see him ride up Mortirolo and Zoncolan in a race. He got spanked pretty good on anything steep in France this year so it'll be much better to ride around in CA for a week and please the Shackstrong sponsors rather than kill himself in La Corsa Rosa.
