Well I spent all day on the phone, going to the markets, and walking in a park. The park is beautiful, on the Moscow river. Has some old brick edifice being restored. Don't know what it was, looked like 19th century, palatial. Lots of vendors with tchotchkes in the park. Food vendors, people picnicing, having a beer, couples smooching, babushkas enjoying the sun and the park benches. It is hot out - close to 30 C, and somewhat humid. My feet are really dogged by the time my day is done.
I missed Hincapie's day on tv. Too bad, it really sounded like an exciting day, but there was too much to do, and I can't do it all. Once again, Lance put time on the big rivals, including Rasmussen. So Rasmussen will do the Virenque thing - take the polka-dot jersey.
