  • Have been really intrested to see how this kid would go in this race he looks like he could be a real talent and should be in some really good form considering he will be riding his first grand tour next month

    I'm not watching the coverage, but I'm going to say he's probably fallen off whilst going in a straight line.

    That's what I was fearing, but having had a look at the ticker updates, it seems he's actually doing pretty well.

    So Menchov - not a clown (for now)

    Winter training with stabilizers has clearly paid off then.

    Kreuziger looks like a domestique. :wink:

    Is Richie Porte's time kosher? The Swiss have had some problems with their timing. :oops:

    No, his feet and ears are normal size, it's just the rest of him that's small.

    Well - it appears young Sagan can do everything brilliantly. Except TT for more than 5 miles.
