Tiernan-Locke was hardly known at that time.

LOL!
He didn't appear to be struggling with it at all though. Maybe he was trying to intimidate his opponents with his display of strength. Or maybe he thought it was Festivus season (sorry for the Seinfield reference).

Well, thats his racing brain being taken out and replaced with power meter readings.

Good luck to the lad, I do enjoy watching him attack, will be interesting to watch him step up.

X2. We need excitement from England and sky now has a sure thing with Locke who can make us forget flavorless cycling style. As far as winning grand tours, I sure hope he will win at least one more than he already have

Either Team Sky have his age wrong, or Endura have his age wrong on their websites.

According to the UCI he is 28, same with Endura. Sky, 27

JTL hopes to ride a grand tour next year, possiblbly the Vuelta so he can experience what it is like, hopefully Sky will put him on one of their GT teams.
