Yesterday's Tour of the Gila in New Mexico saw a field sprint won by brother Haedo. I looked through the results and Taylor Phinney managed an 8th place.

It wasn't a deep sprint or world class by any means (Baldwin was 13th, Leipheimer was 14th), but it's a start! Here's the finish picture. I don't see a livestrong kit anywhere, so he must have come out of nowhere?

Another crash and a DNF today. I have a feeling he is on bleeding edge of road racing. He's only 19. Don't turn him into another TD. Give him time. At least 3 - 5 years. Think of him as a wine. Let him mellow on the rack for awhile.
