Svein's 'tough' message...

 Svein Tuft was tough with his amazing 7th ride. 
A symbolic message is revealed on his inside arm.


An interesting message on the arm of Canada's Svein Tuft revealed, 'We will never be here again.'
Poignant and definitely the catch phrase for an electric ride which resulted in his amazing 7th place today.  In close with fellow Olympic time trialists'- Mick Rogers(8th), Sammy Sanchez(6th), Cadel Evans(5th), Alberto Contador(4th), Levi Leipheimer(bronze), Gustave Larsson(silver), and gold medalist  Fabian 'the new Mr. Chrono' Cancellara. Canadian, Ryder Hesjedal rode well finishing in a solid sixteenth and looked strong throughout.  

Superwoman with a super ride,  women's TT.

The ageless, Jeannie Longo finished in 4th, a second shy of bronze!

French Superwoman Jeannie Longo nearly misses by a second for the bronze as the ageless 49 year old finished in 4th. I hope to see her line up in London to again show those young riders a thing or two. Gives us older riders a cause for celebration!

Yeah, what a bummer to see Longo miss out on a medal by less than two seconds! But I love seeing her still in the thick of things -- she's a living relic of one of the sport's better eras.

If Jeannie Longo does make a comeback for London, she deserves a gold medal!
