    Been looking forward to Phinney participating for a long time.

    Watched his dad race in Reno in the only major bike race I have ever seen live. He even let me touch his crank.

    Agree.

    Assume Van de Velde or Roll fills the seat.

    Will be interesting to see how they work it. I always assumed that the US crew used the Brits to do "play by play" during the race and that the Brits were addressing a British audience while we were watching the US crew. That wouldn't work for an easy meld.

    Also, I think Phil has been losing it a bit. Paul was often correcting him - this past season particularly. He is 75 and might just choose to hang it up.

    It will never be the same without "road furniture" and "dancing on the pedals" and those accents that allowed you to believe you were watching something sophisticated instead of a bunch of doped up cheaters.

    Just saw that the cause of death was heart failure.
