lol, more like the last 2 laps of a keirin than a road sprint
...[Walsh] thinks we're ahead of the curve. But think about it for a sec. We're building long-lasting, trusting relationships with people who are spending a lot of money - Coke, Nike, Subaru. If we're f***ing lying, we can kiss it all goodbye. And if we were lying we'd do some stupid stuff to try to cover it up, wouldn't we?

How typical is it that Fenn again is much better in a 116 km race, than in yesterday's 163 km race? He doesn't seem to develop at all, his endurance is really problematic. I Haven't really seen him perform in races over 150 km.

Really? Doesn't seem much of a problem to me.

You obviously don't watch any races with British commentators!

Monsalve just missing top 5, but hopefully he can kill it on Genting in stage 5.

Haas FTW. Another minor placing for my CQ team.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

Genting is a totally different climb. Where someone like Pardilla will feel more at home.

Its time to be a bit more creative during the pro teams breakfast meetings, otherwise Bos will take his 3rd win.

Who the hell is Wang Meiyin? That's a big gap hey.
Anybody know how the stage panned out? There's really no chance Wang takes the overall?

I'm not sure so don't shoot me, but I think he was the break of the day.
Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

Ye he was in the breakaway together with: Loh Sea Keong, Ho Junrun and Seo Joon Yong, maybe 1 more some reports say 4 others say 5, but cant find a fifth name.

But Wang is a reasonable climber. Strong performance by Arredondo though

I knew it we would have some Asian rider winning here at least a stage, that's good. Serry did quite well on 7th for a more of a punchy guy, that's nice.

Oh, we had this conversation early on. Verona finishes 42nd :p

P.S. Sulzberger on 4th ? That's a surprise.
