Cycling loses a rising star.: Andrei Kivilev becomes one of a very few cyclists to die in a race. This is bad news for many reasons, not least because the guy was turning into a legitimate Grand Tour contender. A sad day for the wheelmen.
The agony of victory.: Great article about why suffering is so important to Lance Armstrong's victories. More opinion in this Q and A bit. Oh, and US Postal took second today in the Team Time Trial, just a hair behind ONCE.
