Julich wins Criterium International

Julich wins Criterium International:

The Americans (who aren’t named Lance Armstrong) are really having a great start in Europe this year. After winning Paris-Nice less than a month ago, Bobby Julich just captured the Criterium International. Last time he won this race, he finished thrid in the Tour de France. Of course, that was the last year that a non-Texan won the Tour de France.

As for Lance & the Discovery team, they had a great day at Brabantse Pijl (in Belgium). Lance worked as domestique for George Hincapie. George finished sixth, just missing the final escape group. But this was a great result since both men had dropped from Paris-Nice. I guess its March and we can finally say “game on.”

One final note, I just read on Velonews that 2006 will add another multi-stage race to the United States. In addition to the United Texas Tour and the Tour de Georgia, the U.S. will also host the Tour of California.
