Which way to look?

I don't know which way to look. In Europe, Cyclingnews reports that Valverde is firing off 2 quick wins in succession, whilst Landis holds firm against Danielson in the US.

Check out the top-10 from La Doyenne:
1 Alejandro Valverde (Spa) 262 km @ 41.202 km/h
2 Paolo Bettini (Ita)
3 Damiano Cunego (Ita)
4 Patrik Sinkewitz (Ger)
5 Michael Boogerd (Ned)
6 Martin Perdiguero M.Angel (Spa)
7 Frank Schleck (Lux) Team CSC
8 Christopher Horner (USA) Davitamon - Lotto (all same time)
9 Danilo Di Luca (Ita) Liquigas 4secs back and
10 Ivan Basso (Ita) Team CSC 7secs off the leaders.

Nice to see Chris Horner up there with the big guns. Basso is close. probably as close as he needs to be right now with the Giro and Le Tour coming up fast.

Noted also in Cyclingnews that 10 Aussies finished the Tour de Georgia. Not necessarily stars now or in the future but guys who are hopefully making a living out of their sporting prowess. There are names here that just a year or 2 back were doing clubs races back home...
