    There is a reason that everybody doesn't have a 28 inch waist line and an even bigger reason that not everyone is a pro-cyclist. It is hard work and I am reminded of it everytime I hit an 18% grade and I am not even in the same universe as the pros. Stage 13 will be a painfest.

    Stage 4 report. The BIG German Marcel Kittel wins yet again making it 3 stages out of 4 this year.
    Our Hero Kevin Reza finished 54th today and sits at 80th overall. 5th stage Wednesday will be easily the hardest so far. Several sections of Roman Cobble stone roads will make it a brutal day.

    Look for "Sparticus" Fabian Cancellara for the win.

    Not sure he will win but he will certainly lead out for most of the stage and sacrifice himself for the team.

    An amazing stage. Nibali is the big winner today, unbelievable that he could hold off Sagan and Cancellara. And great race from Boom as well.

    I am guessing Richie Porte will be the protected rider for Sky now.

    Carnage on the Cobbles....Stage 5 report.
    Defending Champion Chris Froome crashes heavily several times and is OUT of the race. Alberto Contrador loses HUGE time to race leader Vincenzo Nibali and now sits in 19th place 2:37 behind. The race was shaken and turned up side down on the wet cobbles today.

    Our hero Kevin Reza came in 119th today and sits 94th place over all at 24:03 behind the leader.

    EPIC STAGE today
