Good, I expect much more from him in '13.
Possible the biggest talent on Orica.

Time trials, or do you think he can pull off some wins in road stages?

Is certainly a talent but there are others who have left the track to keep an eye on this year as well. Hepburn, Bewley, Howard and Meyer will have full years with a road pre-season and Hepburn especially could be as good, if not better than Durbridge. I think Durbridge's great year and more improvement has also helped Tuft, who has shown excellent progression and seems to be a good mentor type for the up and coming time trial capabilities of OGE.

Hot and 36C for the final day of the Bay Crits. Williamstown will be a perfect location. We also get to see the Herald Sun Tour prologue later in the day.

Very possible. The kid has a monster engine, can climb a little and is a full year younger than the likes of Phinney, Matthews, Degenkolb, Sagan, Moser etc.

I shall say Porte to take the ITT. The criterium Davison, Renshaw or Matthews.

U23 RR Law or Flakemore, Phelan animating it. U23 Criterium shall be Ewans' quite easily. The ITT winner in my view will be Howson though Kerby could challenge.

For the womens RR i shall say Neylan, Cromwell or Gilmore who looks to be getting better.

No idea for the rest.

No way Gilmore will win. She has only just come back and is not a good climber, especially in comparison to Neylan and Cromwell.
