Stage 1 TTT: CVV Looks Pretty in Pink

Slipstream came here to win the TTT and they did. By 6 seconds over CSC. Mission accomplished. Let's celebrate with burritos and Negra Modelo, shall we? Vandevelde ends up in the maglia rosa. Let's see how long he can hold onto it. If DZ can stick around until the next ITT, he has a good chance to put it on next. That 'stache would make the pink jersey look prettier than ever. Full results, report, and photos at CN, VN, and Pez.

Now on to what really matters. Appropriately, Remaining Men Together wins the TTT. On the strength of CVV and a team stacked with Slippies and Astanas, El Presidente is not off to his usual slow start. Don't look now, but King Andy is currently sitting in 20th place. What's going on? It's still pretty tight though. And thins will change in a big way soon. Starting tomorrow, probably. In any case, here are the results for the first stage which, today at least, are also the current overall standings:
