    Thanks for posting these. I'm actually in Italy at the moment- visiting my extremely non-cycling oriented friend. I have, however, persuaded her to watch Friday's stage roadside. I don't know if I'll get any good photos, but it will be fun.

    Wiggins is out of the Giro. But he wasn't the only one leaving the competition today. Ryder Hesjedal also withdrew. It's a pity cause they are both great cyclists.

    The Giro parcours is probably harder than the Tour, and I can't imagine trying to get over those mountains with a chest infection. It will be interesting to see how Uran does when left to ride just for himself and the team is there to help him.

    Today's stage of the Giro cancelled due to snow,cold weather and dangerous riding conditions

    This allows today's news to focus purely on Danilo Diluca who tested positive (again) for old school epo. He signed on to a smaller team shortly before the race thanks to his personal sponsor, and so far he has been animating the race with lots of attacks (but luckily no stage wins). Loved this tweet from Vicent Reynes:

    shit today we have not race!!because i will love to see Di luca and smack he's face!for how much we sofer with he's stupit ataks...jajaja
    ETA: Not great cycling weather

    According to Eurosport's facebook, Bradley Wiggins won't participate at Tour de France. Damn.

    He was supposed to be supporting Froome for this TdF, but it would have been interesting to see how it played out.

    Not sure if that's the thread to post it in but the German news on TV reported that Jan Ullrich finally admitted to blood doping.

    Lots of National Championships over the wekend. Cavendish won the British road title, although I was sort of hoping David Millar could pull out the win in Glasgow. Alex Dowsett kept the time trial championship.

    Stijn Devolder won the Belgian road title, although he claimed he wasn't trying to make a statement after being left off the Shack TdF team. BMC's Santamorita won the men's road title in Italy.

    FDJ's Vichot wins the French men's road title, and Chavanel gets the French time trial.

    In Germany, Greipel gets the road title and Tony Martin defends his TT title. Movistar's Herrada gets the Spanish road title.

    Thor smashed the Norwegian road title, but Boasson Hagen got the time trial.

    Cancellara got the Swiss time trial title, but BMC's Schar got the road title to the delight of his BMC teammates who seemed really happy for him.

    ETA: Belkin steps up as sponsor for the former Rabobank team.

    Phinney got his first road race stage win at the Tour of Poland yesterday - barely holding off the peloton after a solo escape

    Uran and Renshaw to OPQS next season - official signings can be publicly announced now that it's August. Pellizotti to Katusha, starting off controversy because he's been signed by UCI Pro Tour team too soon after his suspension - although how exactly the timing works is in dispute.

    Like this twitter exchange between Renshaw and Cav :


    Mark Renshaw: @MarkCavendish - See you in 2014!

    Mark Cavendish: ‏ @Mark_Renshaw - shit. Another 2 years of your moaning.

    Mark Renshaw: @MarkCavendish Moaning? I guess that means dragging you round the bunch.

    Videos:
    Prologue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9q294cWWBs
    1st Stage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dd0Pkm0gjhY

    Stage 1 - there was a key moment to decide the stage winner: the front of the bunch, where the stage favorites were already integrated, made a mistake and instead of following the front of the road they took a turn. In the end, russian Alexander Serov (Rusvelo) won the stage, with Maxime Daniel (Sojasun) and Manuel Cardoso (Caja Rural) in a close second and third.

    Stage 2 - There was a breakaway with about 10 riders. Joni Brandão (Efapel) was managing to get away in the front of the race but surprisingly his own team mates started to attack in the bunch to get closer to the fugitives. Everybody was a bit astonished with that attack. Danail Petrov (Caja Rural) was closely following Brandão and even with the bunch already close to them in the last km, it looked clear that Petrov could win the stage. The problem was that both Brandão and Petrov turned to the area where the cars should go near the arrival place instead of going the intended way. As a consequence they both crashed about 150m to the arrival place. Rui Sousa of Efapel took the victory in his hometown. Petrov was p*ssed off and Brandão was almost in tears. In the a tv interview, Brandão said that he was very sad to have been attacked by his own colleagues.

    The Tour of Utah is going on with some beautiful scenery that is strikingly different from what I'm used to seeing - Bryce Canyon's red rock arches.

    Ted King has a funny blog about cheers from fans on the side of the road. He also mentions the "Dollar Monster" - a guy in a Big Foot suit who stands along the road at the Tour of Utah and hands out dollar bills to riders. At least some of them take the dollars.
