Three Cyclists, One Team, and One Head Honcho I'm Thankful For

1. Holy crap dear little Carlos Sastre is the reigning Tour de France champ this year!

2. Holy crap Samu Sanchez is the reigning Olympic champ for the next four years!

3. Nicole Cooke. In a year when the Brits absolutely pulverized every rival on the road and in the velodrome, she pretty well whomped on even her own superlative countrymen and -women. Woo-hoo!

4. Garmin-Chipotle. Who knew that a team could be so unaerodynamically furry and yet so fast?

5. Johan Bruyneel. In screwing over the spectacular threesome of Contador, Kloden, and Leipheimer for 2009, he's managed to beat even Bjarne Riis' record for Greatest Number of Internal Team Hosings In a Single Season. Allez, allez!

Happy Thanksgiving to all, and to all a good night!
