what are you talking about? booz up mate!stevesbike said:20 minute bonuses-when was that, 1927? Personally, I think the organizers have done a nice job making the first week more entertaining.

I've gotta admit I don't know. What the hell is the difference between a Prologue and and individual time trial?weltyed said:personally, i miss the TTT, but thats about it. when the prologue was outta country it was neat, but it always seemed to be a, "yeah, he looks good this year and will win" sorta thing.
Distance is the only major difference. I forget what the magic number is, but anything over a certain distance is classified as an individual time trial - even if it happens to be on the opening day of the Tour.

I think it takes away from the riders becasue they can't ride there own race they do where the DS says.
