Hello World!

If I still held any doubts that miracles are still possible, American cyclist Tyler Hamilton has firmly erased them with his performance over the past few days.

Last week, Hamilton was one of the worst injured riders during a big crash at the end of the first Tour de France stage. Hamilton, riding for the CSC Tiscali team, was reported to have broken his collar bone, and no one expected he would be able to continue in the race. But the next day, he appeared at the start, and over the next few days managed to stay in the Tour, even though no one expected he would be able to obtain any real results. But then during the team time trial, he was widely credited as the main driving force in his team, and during the first two mountain stages yesterday and today he managed to finish with practically the same time as Tour favourite Lance Armstrong.

At the moment, Hamilton holds the sixth place, and is only two minutes behind Armstrong in the general classification. He's doing so well I might have to add him back to my Fantasy Tour team, after kicking him out immediately following his crash. I always thought the man was very sympathetic (I enjoy reading his daily web journal), but now I'll also have to start ascribing Superman qualities to him. And if this is how Hamilton is able to perform with a broken collar bone, I can't wait to see how he'll do next year once he's fully recover - maybe then Armstrong will finally face a real challenge for the first time in years.
