    Sorry to drift the thread, but surely that finishes his Paris roubaix ambitions for this year.

    Apparently he will use Belgian races as prep, according to Cyclingnews anyway...

    Need another angle on the pic but it looks like Brad's got a bit of a stomach

    *runs away laughing*

    Decent gap for Albasini with 15km to go (according to the text ticker, not watching it live). Are the peloton gonna catch him?

    In Contrast to BMC, Greenedge having a flying start to the season. Albasini's turn today!

    Fair play to GreenEdge. They've already surpassed my expectations for them this season.

    I've made the same mistake a few times this year. Got so used to G in the national jersey and their hair is equally messy.

    I was nearly knocked off my bike last week - some old biddy - had to stop to have words with her - set off and about an hour later I saw wiggins on halsall lane if anyone knows it -in that gear- - although not in shorts, and a buff round his mouth - nodded and said hello - I was made up. If i hadnt stoppped to speak the woman I would have missed him - made my day it did - a good thing coming from the bad.
