Tour de Suisse - Stage 6

Today's stage was exciting and Kim Kirchen from High Road got the victory. There were some good attacks from CSC, including Frank which was great after yesterday's death avoided tumble. Jens! was in another break away. Such good stuff.

I am doing an injustice to this post tonight but I am so supposed to be packed and on the road already. Just a few hours behind schedule! Augh!!! I should be able to find some time to update a bit better but it might be tight. Packed weekend back home up in Cheeseland. Must go finish packing and get headed out. The 3+ hour trip is great at night with less traffic but even for me who doesn't sleep much, it makes for a long night... Chat with ya more tomorrow!!!

Thanks Erik!
Up here and watched the race this morning. Planning out a bike ride right now. Then planning on fun for local races over the weekend. Should be good. I have a feeling I'll be spending some mega time here with my cousins to enjoy some fun internet time.
