Lancaster was the 4th OGE rider not doing the Nationals. Haven't heard any leaks on the OGE makeup for TDU, anyone got the good mail?

I am thinking it might be something like this;

Gerrans
Clarke
Durbridge
O'Grady
Mathews

Goss.....who would leadout for him?
Mouris
Meyer
Sulzberger
Lancaster ??
Cooke

Of course only 7 can be selected.

Matthews said he would probably end up working for Gerro and Goss at the TDU, so unless there's been a change of plans I'd expect Goss to be riding.

Looks like Matthews is peaking for TDU again. Surprised that he'd beat Porte in a long time trial.

Matthews is quite a decent time trialist, he just rarely rode one all out on Rabobank. Porte is of course not ideally built for a long flat time trial.

I see there are 4 OGE riders not doing the Nationals. O'Grady (who just raced the Herald Sun Tour), Davis, Hepburn and ?? (can't recall the 4th). Howard and Docker heading to San Luis to race with Albasini, Meier, Tuft and Weening.
O'Grady is still on the start list

There was a pretty strong crosswind too, no chance for Porte who may not be peaking for February this year. Although his margin to Durbridge is actually smaller this year so who knows.

Good ride by Alex Morgan just out of J19 to come 2nd in U23 by 1.7 secs.
Ave speed 50.5 albeit shorter distance.
