No way he is that tall. Maybe wearing his mom's high heels :D

For whatever a 2100m race is worth...

Looks like the Sky GC remains undecided, Froome appears to have some form although finishing behind Henao and Kennaugh who already showed themselves on the weekend. Honestly Froome/Kennaugh should 1-2 regardless.

I'm guessing one of the Praties boys (Cooper) to be next best. Maybe Haig.

Yeah, but Froome finishing behind young Sebastián Henao is still a bit surprising.

Norris could also finish high up, tomorrow could be interesting with basically no flat roads and some tricky twisting roads so a break could stick

Not surprising, its a tight circuit which wouldn't take much for something to go wrong so why would Froome risk it when he's only here at his sponsors request. I don't think Froome wins this race anyway

Look for one of the young Aussies to go on the attack over the last KOM... Robbie Hucker, Chris Hamilton, Lucas Hamilton, Pat Lane, maybe Haig, but he'll more than likely be on leadout duties for Ewan.

Apparently Froome and Kennaugh attacked with 19km to go, and held off the peloton. I'm not seeing any links to live coverage online.

I was wrong looking at what happened today, looks like Froome did come here to race

Sure. I missed a few words of drawl but it was more or less, Haig: "I used to just cruise around, chat with my mates, have a good time and these guys just want to give [?] all day. Quoi, he started it I guess. Froomey's come here, stole all our crowd and beaten us in bike racing. Whose idea was it to bring HIM?"

Howson: "Last 20k, it was up there with the hardest thing ever. it was cat and mouse the whole time. The yo yo effect between the two Sky guys and ourselves was just hovering between 8 and 14 seconds and there was just a full chase to the line and got caught 150 to go or something like that."

As you indicate, it's not clear diction and it may need an Aussie to confirm but it's the Haig humour I like!

Still think they can get rolled at this race but I guess you might be right
