Welcome, I should probably start explaining my game. I am a cycling obsessive, i follow all kinds of races and riders but of course become biased for teams/riders. As much as my blog may sometimes seem to point otherwise, I do have a good knowledge of cycling and can hold my own in a debate, but I chose to approach the more humerous side of it, and have no qualms admitting I'm also a fangirl. I'm female, it's hard to not notice that these guys are often good looking muscular guys in tight clothing with pretty bikes. So be warned.
I have my favourite riders which as it stands (for better or worse) are Valverde, Pereiro, the Schlecks, LL Sanchez, Contador, Sammy Sanchez and most Spaniards, Bennati, Boonen, Taylor Phinney, Eisel, Lovkvist, Wiggins, Rogers, Hincapie, DZ, many of the Garmin boys, Cancellara, Lequatre, Fleeman, Millar, Kenny, JA Flecha, Basso, Capecchi, De la Fuente, etc etc. The favourites tend to crop up lots if you need a more in-depth list.
I welcome all, but apologise for my lack of languages. I only speak English and very poor German, but welcome everyone :]

I also have facebook/msn, just ask.
So I made it back in time for the second week and what a week it looks set to be. Yesterday was mountainous, for once I didn't tip Cunego and he bloody won! Irony eh. Anyway, today was more mountains, slightly shorter- 186km long and from Alcoy to Xorret de Cati with a an ascent, a light descent and a slight uphill finish to complete the day. Anyone who didn't enjoy yesterday wouldn't like today. I'm guessing everyone's been keeping up to date with it, so i won't go through them all. But...
