I hope Goss will show a bit more later.


He's tough, but never shown anything on a day ending with a sustained climb. Last year may have been possible to sneak a podium with lots of time bonuses but not this time.

I wasn't able to watch or follow yesterday's stage, but it sure is nice to be talking about actual bike racing and not off-bike drama for a change. Bring on the Classics (and a healthy Boonen!)

Amen, I remember thinking as I was watching the stage, when the peloton was just taking it easy, letting Kerby hang off the front; that normally I would complain about this type of racing. But I was just glad that there actually was racing once again. :)

Greipel loves the piano style riding on these types of flat stages. If it continues the Gorilla will pick up 3 stage wins. Rumble in the outback.
