2008 Milano-Sanremo

99th Milano-Sanremo - HC
Italy, March 22, 2008

Huge score for Will!!! What an awesome ride yesterday!!! That's just a hell of a long time to be out in a break away but he did it and finished. Huge kudo's to him and the team. It was awesome seeing the coverage and all the chatter about him and the team. Versus included JV's interview about him as well so, even though I generally gripe (a lot) about the coverage they offer, today's on Milano-Sanremo was great (less all the commercials).

Loved watching a lot of Will and an exciting finish. I love Fabian Cancellara (C's past teammate) and score for him on the win as well. Tony is just flying right now and it's awesome seeing him fly at the finishes. This one was quite the site as he just rolled in as those further back chased hard. It would only be better to see him finish 2nd to one of my Slipstream favorites or George but I'm still loving it!!!

A HUGE congratulations to Team Slipstream who got their much deserved invite to the Tour this past week!!! The long list is being worked on but C should for sure be there and there's a chance Will might as well!!! Sweet!!!

I came across this article on Tony's win and thought it was a good read...
