Great end. Congrats to JROD he fully deserved it/ his attack was devastating.
Albasini did great- espescially in a race where GE might have come into with a mindset just to attack. My only complaint is he started his drive a bit early ( before Puritos' )/ did not have a teammate in front of him a bit before he started. He is developing more and more as a rider, which is good.
Congrats to Gilbert, the course does not suit him and it shows he still can place even with not so great form.
I'm happy for Vanendert- he shall continue to progress. He just did not have the sprint to pip Albasini/ Gilbert and could not latch on to Rodriguezs' wheel when he attacked.
Nice rides by Nordhaug/ Hesjedal, Kiserlovski and Ulissi ( still young ). Lotto and Katusha rode well for their leaders.
Poels and Valverde disappointed.
I only just got to Melbourne that is why i am posting late.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

The Grand Boucle wasn't just Europe's for the taking.
