I'm watching the stage 5 TT at the moment on the amgen-toc site, I've seen that there is a shop called Rasmussen Gifts & Fabrics. Solvang was originally a Danish community.

Of more interest is probably the fact that David Millar came second in the ITT ahead of some very big names.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just saw the name and made the Danish connection after first thinking somebody had cashed in on the name.....
No insinuations about drugs or Mexico intended - I had just forgotten the name since last summer.

On the riding front, it is looking good again for Slipstream, but Levi probably has it wrapped up now unless he misses a break with Millar, VdV or Larsson in, which is unlikely.
Loving the hardware there too with all the shots the cameramen are getting of it, and also the visors attached to the Slipstream Advantages (one of those would solve my vision issues in TT mode).

Excellent well done David tis a shame that Leipheimer put 30 seconds into him.
Quite a big stage tomorrow with 4 big climbs fear that Millar's legs may suffer after todays effort, would love to see him take the GC. What a great start for Slipstream.

Well, Cancellara was quoted as saying that Slipstream will be making a major effort to win one of the last stages and he thinks that they will. Lumpy but not too steep stages (couple of Cat 3 and 4 hills) do suit Millar... and Van der velde is looking very good too.
