I am skipping (flying) away from Sydney to go be there on it- problem is not with family friends but the Monday is a public holiday so no biggie.

All his lead outs for EBH in the 2011 TDF were great, he gapped the other trains very quickly.

The finish around Lobethal is not that hard. They should make it. I hope that at least one of Guardini or Kittel comes with decent sprinting form so that there is a challenger to Greipel in the sprints.

They may make the finish but their legs will be shot, final k is false flat too.

Live everyday, my friend. For you internationals, just hop onto the ninemsn.com.au website and the link to the feed will be at the top of the page.

LOL, generally the classics and the Giro/Vuelta are on when I need to be studying! Much worse than TDU.
