    There were streams for the u23 TT (Italian or something. I'm awesome with languages.), I imagine that's all we'll get for the RR too. Shame.

    Also, women's TT is on the red button if people are still trying to find it!
  • Unless she crashes or slows down dramatically, Ellen van Dijk is on course to win the TT.

    Villumsen coming back to the pack a bit. Could be close for the other podium spots.

    PTP disaster. Stevens narrowly behind Small at the finish.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,890
    Villumsen sets the best time by 5 secs. All very close.
  • TurfleTurfle Posts: 3,762
    Blimey that was close.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,890
    Van Dijk wins by 24 secs. Record speed.
  • So:

    1. Ellen van Dijk NED
    2. Linda Vilumsen NZL
    3. Carmen Small USA
    Correlation is not causation.

    Storming ride by Van Dijk
  • A party in Dutch Land tonight

    There's a party in Dutch Land every night!

    Or so I'm told. :?

    A bit late now but this was the web link for BBC coverage. Should be good for tomorrow's TT, as well the weekend races:

  • Big day tomorrow for Wiggo. Well it's a big day for Martin as well. I feel that Martin may be mentally in a better place for this. Wiggins seemed desperate to win the ToB and was meticulous in his preparation for what is/was comparitavely a chipper compared to some of the races he won last season. This though is the real season salvager.

    I really want him to win tomorrow, not because he's British (I'm a big fan of anyone that displays great time-trialling souplesse such as Martin) but mainly because I don't want his head to fall off as he goes into the closed season.

    Any chance Martin could catch Cancellara if the latter isn't giving it 100%?

    Only if he's going backwards - Canc starts after Wiggins.

    The Vikings are coming!

    Go Wiggo. I reckon he'll have it. Too much underestimation has been going on. He's class.

    Pointless riding a tt not 100%.

    He's done no specific prep for it, but he's obviously aiming to peak this week. He didn't do any specific tt prep in Mendrisio either.

    No Vuelta is a disadvantage.

    Will be a shock if big tone doesn't win.

    And Martin starts after Cancellara.

    Or am I missing something?

    The 3rd British rider doing the outdoor timed trial is Alan Dowsett. He will ride the course before Sir Wiggins to check what watts to use!

    I know he's not the favourite but I'd love Wiggo to come away with the win tomorrow. Be great to see him add to the 6 rainbow jerseys he already has by winning one on the road before he moves back to the track for Rio.
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.
  • I hope Martin hammers this home.

    I also hope Wiggins doesnt become too depressed if he doesnt win.

    Surely TT is the one discipline where racing miles don't really matter?

    Come on Wiggo! Suddenly I'm more up for a TT that I ve ever been..I might even watch the last 10 mins of this one.
