    I learned that it's okay to call a woman a "whore" but don't call her "fat." Good to know.

    Come again? Many Americans have been opining for well over a decade that he was doping, long before this post.

    So... they're actually riding bikes out there! Greipel won the first stage of the Tour Down Under and Geraint Thomas won stage two. Cav picked up his first win for Omega Pharma-Quick Step by winning the first stage of Tour de San Luis and Modolo beat Cav to win stage 2.

    World Champ Gilbert is planning to race the Tour of California and focus on the Classics and World Championships. He's uncertain on whether he'll bring the rainbow jersey to the TDF, especially with BMC's focus on Cadel and Tejay.

    Boonen is also having a procedure on his arm - related to an infection from a mountain biking accident.

    The Puerto related Fuentes trial is going on in Spain. Fuentes confirms he treated soccer and tennis players as well as cyclists, but the judge makes no effort to identify the other names and prevents admission of a lot of the other evidence. Cycling is the only sport to have taken any disciplinary action as a result of Puerto.

    And Frank Schleck gets a one year back dated ban that will keep him out of the Tour, but let him ride the Vuelta.

    When has a trend gone too far? When OPQS does a Harlem Shake video.

    And on a different note, Katusha won its case at CAS to be added to the Pro Tour. No news from the UCI if they intend to try to kick out one of the other teams since they've said they intend to keep the Pro Tour to 18 teams even if Katusha wins.

    Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne cancelled due to snow. Organizers were concerned the roads weren't safe, and based on this pic from Brent Bookwalter, I think they're right.

    Epic day at Tirreno-Adriatico today. Heavy rains and repeated climbs over steep, mid-size mountains ended up in almost half the peloton dropping out. The race organizer even took to Twitter to admit that the stage was too tough and a "mistake".

    In the end, Sagan won the stage proving himself to be a very versatile sprinter if he could survive today, and Nibali took the overall lead - setting up a contest with Froome in the final TT.

    Tweet from race organizer:

    @petosagan and @VincenzoNibali shone in a legendary stage. Many of you enjoyed it, but it was too much. We lost the right balance. #Tirreno
    Taylor Phinney kept riding alone after the gruppetto abandoned with 130 KM to go. Afterwards he tweeted this explanation:

    "thought abt my Dad because I know if he cld be me on this day, healthy & disease free, he wld spend 6.5 hrs fighting to finish too."
    But he followed up with:

    And now I'm on the massage table crying like a little girl. So many times I wanted to cry today, it's all coming out now... Emotional day!!!

    Cycling's March (and April) Madness is officially ON....it's monuments and cobbled classics time! Heinous weather at Milan San Remo causes an interruption of the race (they took out a section in the middle of the race, busses and frozen riders involved)....and Cancellara crushes all at E3.

    Fantastic Paris-Roubaix today! One of the most exciting finishes I've seen on that race for some time. I understand the Tour and the Giro are bigger races, but Paris-Roubaix is such a beautiful, difficult, legendary race - truly the king of the classics.

    And Zabel won the U-23 Flanders race. Not legendary Erik Zabel, but his son. It will be interesting to see him develop and see if he has his father's sprinting prowess.

    Dissension is building at Team Sky with Wiggins saying he and Froome may be coleaders for the Tour and that leadership is to be decided. Froome issues a statement saying he's been assured he's the Team Leader.
