And your request in about to be fulfilled...I think its a very good thread, although needs a little more content.
Grrr.... damn it! Prior to watching it, I just had Stage 1 spoiled via FaceBook! I'm going to have to stay off of there till the Tour is over!
Watching stage 1 now...
Noticed Team SKY riders are wearing yellow helmets, kinda looks out of place to me.
Yeah...I confess that during the Giro I was excitedly posting occasional screen caps of results until I realized that they were fairly big spoilers for folk who were watching tape-delayed etc...Grrr.... damn it! Prior to watching it, I just had Stage 1 spoiled via FaceBook!
Finally just got to watch the Stage 1 finish, and you're right Phil! Wow, another extremely impressive win by Sagan!Nice finish... Sagan was on Cancellera's wheel the instant he broke, never seen anyone do that so fast or effortlessly. Once he was latched on for the ride the result was almost inevitable...
Very true.. it's like shooting two birds with one stone if (big IF) Wiggins wins the Yellow and if (big IF) Cav wins the Green...Just watched it on YouTube...wow. He was 20+ riders back with <2km to go, and still managed to get onto exactly the right wheel for the sprint--3rd wheel behind Greipel 300m to go. (If nothing else, those yellow helmets make it easier to track him in the bunch.)
One good thing about him not having sprint support this year is that it will hopefully drive the final nails in the coffin of the whole "Cav can't win without a train" meme...
Wow, did he say that? That's a bit strange. Does he know how sprinting works?Did you see the interview with Griepel? Was complaining he was used by Cav... Lol..
