Random Pro Update

According to VeloNews, future Grand Tour winner Tom Danielson is recovering well from his bout with knee troubles during the Giro. That's good news, since he has yet to complete a Grand Tour and prove that he can handle a three-week festival of pain and suffering with the big boys.

Several other up-and-coming young riders, including both Alejandro Valverde and Damiano Cunego, have suffered physical ailments this year. Cunego got mono during the Giro and Valverde abandoned the Tour with tendonitis. The young guns better stay in shape, if they know what's good for them. That's all I'm saying.
