Sleep Tight, Little Ivan Basso

Tomorrow’s a big day, little Ivan, a real big one. You’ll be flying the Liquigas flag in this year’s running of the Liège-Bastogne-Liège, a 117-year old institution that cycling writers are still tripping all over themselves to call the Grand Maid or Dame or Whatever. It’s a long day in the saddle — 261 km — and you need your rest to notch a big win that could give you a lot of momentum heading into summer (nothing personal, Giro del Trentino).

Thanks for hitting the hay early, buddy, and letting us know via Twitter:

ivanbasso Im in liegi.. I go to sleep tomorrow LBL.

If only you were Belgian, you might actually have a shot at winning this thing.

[NOTE: since cycling is still a second-class sport in America, we’re limited to a half-hour recap of the race on Versus. 3:30 EST]
