Seems to be a slight uphill finish today. The finish is technical as well.

Argos and Lotto seem to be doing most of the work.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

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

I'm pretty sure that Rojas could beat De Gendt in most sprints, but maybe he's not used to finishing with his nose in the wind.

It is an ad break for tv viewers, so I am not sure.

With the hilly part between 10 and 5k to go, I would expect an attack on the final circuit.

Did anyone find Phil Liggett talking about mating koalas really funny?

It's weird seeing Euskaltel in a race like this.

I expect Garmin and Movistar to push a hard tempo on the final lap climb. Should be fun to watch imo. Expect some attacks as well.

no matter how many publicity they show, the idea of "me getting close to animals in australia" will never feel appealing :p

Car had stopped just before a corner towards the riders and some riders had to signal to let the peloton know of the danger.

Hitting that thing at the speeds they are doing could be fatal.
