I`m in favour of no radios full stop. I don`t buy any of the arguments for their use, and if they do have to be there, either make them fully open, so everyone can hear what everyone else says, or just communication only from the rider, no reception. One of the few things I am with the UCI on.There are no radios allowed in the world championships, Makes great racing, although I feel during the pro tour they are neccesary I think it is great they are not used here.
Renshaw probably wouldn't have handled the distance as well. In hindsight, yes he would have been a better pick.If Australia had fieled Renshaw things may have been very, very different. In my own opinion the Aussie Cycling Federation were idiots not to especailly after his performance at the TOB.
