Major congratulations to 17-year-old Taylor Phinney of Boulder who earlier today won the world time trial title at the 2007 UCI Junior Road and Track World Championships in Aguascalientes, Mexico.
At a time when the sport is deservedly under fire, a big win like this from a kid who rides for a scrupulously clean team is something all cycling fans can take comfort in. But enjoy it while you can. Tomorrow’s going to be yet another bad day for pro cycling. Trust me on this one.
Update (8:00 a.m. 8/10/07): Team Discovery disbands.
