History in the making

Well color me surprised. The VeloNews live ticker included a bit of historical perspective on today's course! Check out the 12:15 p.m. update ...

Also of note, the Best Young Rider classification was mixed up after yesterday's stage, and six-time national junior and U-23 cyclo-cross Champ Jesse Anthony has been awarded the jersey! He placed 16th and 15th in the first two stages!

Cyclingnews.com didn't mention the Civil War at all. Plus, neither site pointed out that the TT went right past Rock City, the South's most famous roadside tourist attraction (I don't count Disney World). I guess they're not interested in local color, which is a shame. When they don't point out these things that we know about, it makes me wonder how much we are missing that we don't know about.

That said, I do have to give cyclingnews.com credit for their recent article about the origin of the nickname "The Hell of the North."
