The Silly Season Continues

Well it looks like the "Li'l Bronze Medalist" is continuing his late Summer tour of the "What the f**k are you doing here?" races. First he shows up in Colorado and beats down the knobby crowd at the Leadville Trail 100, and now he's flying the Mellow Johnny's/RadioShack colors at the Tour of Utah. (Which is actually more of an Omnium)

Since the rest of his Shack teammates are either about to get indicted, looking for work elsewhere, or laying low, Levi is doing this one solo...And after a win in Stage 2, he has lead on GC.

As much as I hate to say it, Leipheimer is "done" as a contender on the UCI Pro Tour. Time, age, and scandal have finally caught up with him. Even if the Gerolsteiner allegations are never proven, the TDF this year showed that he can't climb with the top guys anymore. I guess he now needs to make his hay on the Continental circuit.
