I almost always rely on internet sources, but if possible I watch the big stages and purchase the DVDs. (My favorite aspect of cycling is the strategy and tactics and you get much more information from the 'puter than from the TV.)

I'm sure several people thought Hamilton looked good on stages 3 and 5 while he finished well behind the leaders. A famous cycling photographer recently said the Vuelta was down to Landis and Hamilton. The problem is, you can't see inside the cyclists. Perhaps when they start displaying power and heart rate, watchers might have more of chance of making insightful observations.

Are you sure you would like Heras to win? I guess you're still undecided on the eventual winner. Perhaps no one looks good to you because you're comparing everyone to Armstrong.
