Been feeling a little under the weather lately, but the above pictures gave me some inspiration. No guts, no glory...
Stage two of the Tour of Georgia: Yaroslav Popovych sure knows how to impress the boss. With Discovery Channel's Lance Armstrong looking on for the first time here in Georgia, the rising star from the Ukraine made a late-race escape to win Stage 2 of the 2006 Ford Tour de Georgia on Wednesday. Popovych made his winning move on the last of four climbs up steep Clocktower Hill, then held his small gap to the line, besting Juan Jose Haedo (Toyota-United) and Fred Rodriguez (Davitamon-Lotto) in the 116.1-mile stage from Fayetteville to Rome. Popovych
finished in 4:47:39, six seconds ahead of Haedo, Rodriguez, Karl Menzies (Health Net-Maxxis) and Caleb Manion (Jelly Belly). The rest of the field trickled across the finish in groups of five and six, with all but the final 11 finishers losing no more than a minute.
