I hate stupid stage races. While I'm complaining, let it be known that I'm complaining about being bumped from 15th overall to 16th overall. Not a huge deal, but the bumping is from my placing in the TT going from 13th to 14th, which was a 2 second difference. The problem being that Eric Schildge who appeared in front of me (he did get a number of time bonuses) was 12 seconds behind me in the TT.
What did I learn? That I better learn to get time bonuses. Dammit.
