The move on the St.Nicholas, where Gilbert dropped Andy, is probably the
key sign here. Andy is the best climber of the three, but he was dropped,
although finally catching back on. Gilbert was the strong man that day,
although I do agree with other comments that Andy and Frank should have
pressed coordinated attacks. If they had the legs.

Hat's off to all three for a terrific race.

You are on a slippery slope there. Watch out, "it's OK to be a
sportsman" is down there in the river with the alligators.

However: fair comment.

I'm with you on this one. When I used to do the regular Saturday ride
in my part of the world, no one stopped - except me. I would pull over
if I saw someone struggling with a changing a flat tire, even if they
weren't from our ride, but the guys you rode with were right in what
they said - what you saw is the way cycling is 99% of the time, and that
aspect of it stinks. _If_ absolutely hammering themselves on this one
day was a critical piece of their competitive training, that's one
thing, but I'm sure it wasn't and that it's simply that they enjoying
hammerfests.

So you're in the vicinity of Yverdon, at the south end of the Lac de
Neuchâtel. Thus, going clockwise starting roughly at 6 o'clock,
you're surrounded by the Gros de Vaud, the Jura vaudois, the Jura
neuchatelois, the Seeland, the Emmental, the Alpes fribourgeoises, the
Gruyere. You've got medieval towns like Estavayer-le-lac, and the
Roman ruins at Payerne, you can push a little further to Lausanne and
the Riviera vaudoise, or even Interlaken on a long day ride. Not
mentioning how far you can go if you're willing to hop the train
back. If it were me, I'd just appreciate the fact that I was in one
of the great cycling regions of the world, and go for long rides by
myself instead of playing the Franco-american schmuck for the locals.
Feh.

April 2011:

"I panicked a little because I was completely isolated. I was mad at
my teammates and shouted through the radio that I needed help but
nobody came. By the time they came it was too late and about ten
riders had attacked. It was a very bad situation for us. At that
moment I was really mad at my team because last week during the
briefings we said that we had to be in the breakaway there and nobody
was there, so that's sad," Gilbert said.

January 2011:
http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/gilbert-supports-radio-ban

"It was nice in Geelong, I liked it. For me, if I could decide, I
would race without them. I can see a race, feel a race, so I don't
need it. I won Lombardia without a radio. I was in contact with my
teammates and not with the car, and when you have a good vibe with
your teammates it's more important than the one with your directeur
sportif. The most important relationship is the one you have with your
teammates," Gilbert told Cyclingnews.

Dumbass,

It ain't gonna be a Tuesday in April. Or May.

It'll come in July. That's when the attention is maximized. With
Novitsky, that's the point.

You heard it here first, a Tuesday in July.

Discomfort? Not at all. Your FuckWit, knee jerk attacks are expected

Attack? There was no attack. It's like that time you argued that the

This tells me that the Lance camp is crapping in their pants--assuming
he answers any questions about the investigation. Oprah will be expected
to throw softballs (pun intended), but you never know what might possess
her to squeeze his remaining ball.

Fabio will have him well coached for the appearance. But, it's a fairly
big risk for a person under investigation to take. Presumably a live
audience, too.

Yeah, we know O is really into the whole doping/fraud thing, not so much
the cancer foundation thingy. Total pants crapping...

You're not really Brian, you're just mocking him.

Not bad, but it's a little over-the-top. Even for Brian. Oprah as the
investigative journalist is pretty funny, though. Who WOULDN'T crap
their pants if SHE showed up on their doorstep?

Increasing Access to Credit Through Reforming Secured Transactions in the MENA Region*
By Alejandro Alvarez de la Campa, Global Product Leader, Secured Transactions and Collateral Registries Program, World Bank Group

OVERVIEW

This paper provides a comparative summary of secured transactions systems related to the use of movable property as collateral in the MENA region vis � vis international practices in countries with modern secured transactions systems.

The paper sets out the importance of introducing reforms in the area of secured transactions with the objective of increasing access to credit for businesses, particularly SMEs. The MENA region clearly lags behind all other regions in the introduction of secured transactions reforms. The paper summarizes many of the weaknesses common across the region. The two main critical areas that need urgent reforms are the creation of modern secured transactions laws and electronic movable collateral registries, and the need to improve enforcement mechanisms for security interests in movable property. This article provides a brief synopsis of the full paper, which is available for download online.

SECURED TRANSACTIONS AND MOVABLE COLLATERAL: CURRENT STATE IN MENA

Access to credit is crucial for economic growth and is the engine for private sector development. While access to credit varies from one jurisdiction to another, constrained access to finance remains among the top three limitations on private sector growth in the developing world. More than half of private firms in emerging markets have no access to credit. The number of firms that use loans to finance investments in the developing world is half the number of those of firms operating in OECD countries.1

Creditor protection through modern secured lending legal regimes is associated with higher ratios of higher private sector credit to GDP (2006, Djankov et al). Increasing the protection of creditor's rights and enforcement mechanisms can lead to a considerable increase in private sector credit to GDP.2 As illustrated in the figure on page 2, the MENA region clearly lags behind the rest of the world in firms' access to private credit.
