    Twitter Fun: Cancellara is at Trek World - a conference for Trek dealers in Chicago with the Schlecks, and he tweets a pic of a unique time trial bike that is small enough for a 4 year old and isn't available for public sale.

    Leipheimer tweets back that Cance should shut up because that's Levi's bike.

    I love that Levi has a sense of humor....after the craptastic tour he and his team had.

    In other news....Thor will be SMASHing with BMC for the next few years!

    Having to play lead-out boy for Tyler while wearing yellow AND world champion stripes was probably a bit chafing.

    HTC riders supposedly can't confirm new jobs until Sept 1 (for some reason, although not sure why or how it's binding), but every other source is saying that Renshaw signed with Rabobank to be their number 1 sprinter at the Tour.

    ETA: Renshaw article

    Preliminary start lists for the Vuelta.

    Taylor Phinney is riding for BMC. Looks like most of the top name sprinters will be riding. Cav is riding without Renshaw. This preliminarily lists Hushov for Garmin Cervelo but Velo News is reporting that Garmin Cervelo has left him off the team. They also say that the entire TDF podium is riding the USA Pro Cycling Challenge.

    Toto takes on this weeks noteworthy tweets from the cycling world.

    Hushovd definitely not riding the Vuelta, and some Australian riders seem to feel strongly about it for some reason - directing all sorts of critival tweets to Vaughters about disrespecting the rainbow jersey.

    Wow, it's getting really crowded at BMC. It doesn't seem like there is really room for Thor and Gilbert on BMC for grand tours, especially with Evans already saying that BMC will not work for Thor.

    Is it just me, or did the Vuelta start like a week later last year? I remember it starting the weekend before my orientation, which is next week. I was watching Gymnastics on Universal sports and they mentioned that the Vuelta started this weekend. Otherwise I'd have missed it because I thought it was a week away!

    Yikes. It looks like the cyclist had plenty of time to see any pedestrians in the road, so the kid must have just darted out in front of him obliviously. It's good to see an ambulance in the background!

    An amazing picture. The peloton must have hoped the boy would hold up quick or was a fast runner because they're coming like a freight train.

    It looks like the rider tried to slide the bike under him while doing a step and roll over him, but the front tire maybe caught on the boy's firmly planted foot?

    "Burghardt hits a dog" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0dzMp61G5w from the 2007 Tour shows a relatively happy outcome.

    Yay for Rachael Flatt - she just tweeted about the US Pro Challenge race going on in Colorado.

    I did a massive double take when I realized that she'd tweeted that instead of one of the many cyclists I follow.

    Some great pics from the US Pro Challenge

    ETA: Tyler Farrar crashed out of the Vuelta today. Latest update from twitter by one of the Velnews guys:

    Farrar transported to local hospital, could not put weight on left leg; no official confirmation yet, but looked bad

    A really sweet guest column on the Fat Cyclist website about a kids chance to meet some of his cycling heroes

    Reports that Leipheimer and Tony Martin have signed with Omega. Didn't see that one coming. I wonder if this has anything to do with a rumored Leopard-Trek/Radio Shack merger? However, Levi has emphasized that he hasn't made any official announcement of a team for next year.

    It sounds like the boy spent the night in the hospital but wasn't seriously hurt.

    Thanks for the update on the boy!

    Pinotti and Van Garderen confirmed to BMC.
