Three stages down and until today I was sitting happily in third place. Not sure how the GC is looking at this point, but I got fourth on the super spinny, heavy on the climbing, mostly road stage today. Third in the prologue and third (even though I crashed hard early in the race) on the second stage. Oh how I love riding in Cooper's Gap Rothrock. The crash gave some nasty scrapes on both arms and right thigh, plus the extra bonus of a fat lip (hence the "fatter" mustache).
Head on over to tsepic.com for much better media of the stages. Abe is gettin' some great shots!
