Absolutely Amazing…Pieter Weening Wins Stage 8 by .0002 Seconds

It boggles me that you could ride 235.5 Kilometers and your winning margin is less than a Centimeter. It is the smallest margin in Tour history. The officials had to rely on the official timing system time sensors, that are on every bike, because the photo finish was to close for proof positive to determine the winner. Unbelievable. 146 miles and you win by less time than it takes to blink. The biggest question though is where the heck was the Discovery Team? Lance all by himself chasing down attacks. They must have decided to take the day off. Maybe it”s just a strategy to lull everybody else into thinking they don’t have it this year. Let’s hope so. Oh, by the way, that’s 1/8000 of a second.
