La Vuelta a España 2012: Prediction

  1. Contador
  2. Froome
  3. Cobo
  4. Mollema
  5. Moreno
  6. Anton
  7. Rodriguez
  8. Cunego
  9. Uran
  10. Krueziger
  11. Quintana
  12. Talansky
  13. Henao
  14. Monfort
  15. Van den Broeck

That's what I've got. The only real surprises I have are Cobo reliving last year's form, Mollema outperforming Gesink, and Moreno being Katusha's GC guy over Rodriguez. Froome or Contador will win the points classification. Uran for best young rider. Moncoutie for KOM.

A Wonderful Consolation

After a week of mental gymnastics, I finished the Level 2 test. I'm pleased to be reaching a point where my services have more credibility. A great deal of coaching knowledge still evades me, but I think I'm on the right track.

-The podcast is still running. Episode 6 just came out, and I think it's a good listen.
-I'm feeling less pain on the bike. When I'm off the bike, it's about the same, but the riding is good.
-The Olympics is going on. I'm getting a little tired of the team USA spotlight from NBC, but it is American, I guess (and USA is killing it). I guess I just don't like being mainstream.
-First Team Winded group ride tomorrow. I'm pumped! I look forward to seeing my old teammates and meeting new ones.
-School starts in 3 months. I'm not pumped for it. The hope is that I will become pumped for it.
