EuroTrash Monday

I'm a fan of EuroTrash Monday by Pez Cycling News

...."Sprinters Call It Quits (a the Giro)
Numerous riders have now pulled out of the Giro as the torturous last week has started with two of the top sprinters in Tyler Farrar and Robbie McEwen deciding that yesterday's little spin up the Zoncolan wasn't really their cup of tea and they didn't even start the stage. There were five other riders throughout the day yesterday who wished they would have made the same decision as a combination of sickness, fatigue and just a damned big mountain put paid to their chances this year and they withdrew during the stage."

and many more stories from recent days ...
