Were live at the stage 3 time trial and I found an open wireless network. There is a light rain falling and the riders are coming in. Conditions are getting continually worse and this course is favoring the early starters. We are about 15 minutes from Lance taking the start line. Bobby Julich is on the course along with Floyd Landis. I am pretty excited about this post as it is the first time I have ever uploaded anything to the website as it is actually happening. I purchased my first WiFi card last night and turned on the computer just a moment ago just for kicks. To my amazement it gave me a message saying "wireless network found." So here comes some live coverage.
When I first arrived just after noon the pavement was mostly dry and no rain was falling. It is now sprinkling and looks like it is going to get worse. The course is going to get greasy if this keeps up. I'll keep ya'll posted as best I can. Remember that if you get any real cool shots of this stage or have a comment to pass on to the peanut gallery please send it to email@example.com.
