Tour de Georgia Stage 3: the ITT

Today's shortish (18-mile) time trial with a short steep climb up Rome's Mount Alto should provide an early-season fitness check for Lance Armstrong, Floyd Landis, and Levi Leipheimer -- the American Tour de France hopefuls.

Last year, Armstrong took the race lead during the time trial, as he finished up a morning-afternoon double victory, taking the morning road race and the afternoon time trial.

I'll be leaving for the race within the next hour, and should be posting from Rome this afternoon. I'm going to meet Operation Gadget's Dave Aiello, who is blogging from the race. Also blogging from the TdG is Velogal, who also has a smugmug gallery posted.

ThePaceline.com has members-only (free registration) diary updates from Tom Danielson (7th yesterday) and Michael Barry, who is sporting Hincapie shades, and a notebook by Dan Osipow, who notes Discovery Channel's start times for today.

Err, that should say I work at the races (NYC Cycling Championship, SF Grand Prix, Philly, Trenton, Lancaster) with VeloGal and she is quite a trip. Oh, yeah.

Use bugmenot.com or the bugmenot extension for Firefox to bypass Paceline's registration. I hate registration.
