I'd like some credit for picking out Dan Whitehouse, but I completely whiffed on Bizkarra and Taaramäe. Did not expect signs of life from either of them, let alone both 0_O

Nice to see Cerler and Taaramae back.
I think it's the sign of a clean rider and a real sportsman to be attracted to the bigger challenge over the ultimate result. Good luck with the Giro/Tour double, Chris Froome. -Phil Gaimon

Horrible TV work not showing the sprint for second and more importantly, Greipel's gap.

Just watched this. Fun to see Greipel winning after being in the break and making a solo attack

Tour of Norway stage 1

1 Dylan Groenewegen Team LottoNL-Jumbo 4:33:54
2 Sondre Holst Enger Israel Cycling Academy ,,
3 Jon Aberasturi Euskadi - Murias ,,
4 Pieter Vanspeybrouck Wanty - Groupe Gobert ,,
5 Trond Trondsen Team Coop ,,
6 Kevin Deltombe Sport Vlaanderen - Baloise ,,
7 Jeroen Meijers Roompot - Nederlandse Loterij ,,
8 Alan Banaszek CCC Sprandi Polkowice ,,

Don't know why Groenewegen started here and not in California. Well, a lot of easy wins in flat stages coming I guess

As a sprinter you should just avoid Sky at all cost. Go to Quick Step or LottoNL atm.

Halvorsen was all alone in the final. Was fighting with Banaszek for Groenewegen's wheel and took a lot of wind while doing it. In the end he got a bit boxed in and couldn't do anything.

About 5 bike lengths for Groenewegen. Ofcourse in this field that doesn't say anything

It has hit him as hard as the Swedish tennis star, Robin Söderling who also had to end his career after having been top five in the world until his disease.

Such a pity.

Mono is no joke. I think Thor Hushovd suffered from it aswell for the last two seasons before retierement too.

Boom's been thrown out of the Tour of Norway for doing a particularly accurate impression of Terpstra

Couldn't have picked a more perfect day to do it

Edvald Boasson Hagen has a pretty cool way of celebrating his birthday, which also happens to be the national day of Norway.

A very anti-horror crash occurred today in the Tour of Norway.


I think he might be okay.
