Thanks for posting.  Looks like you had a perfect day and a great time.  Watching it on TV I was amazed that  Gilbert came from so far back in the last few hundred meters to take third.

this is a great event for anyone interested in cycling. Having watched the event for the second year running, you get a great perspective on the speed of the peleton and the climbing strength of pro riders. The bike handling skills are phenomenal given some of the angry descents with tight corners there were navigated cleanly. I had the opportunity to have dinner with Timmy Duggan of Liquigas/Cannondale (he will also be riding for Team USA at the world championships in Copenhagen) and it was an interesting discussion on the trials and tribulations of the pro-tour. One interesting tidbit on the power of the peloton - a motivated peloton can typically chase down a breakaway by peeling away 1 minute for every 10 kms!! Every avid cyclist should put this event in their daytimer - where else do you have the opportunity to see world class athletes for free?
