The last 3 km profile looks different then when you look on the total stage profile.

But nice intro :D

It's just the scale that is confusing. In the last 2km it seems to rise approx 90m vertical height, so it's not a flat run in.

This could be fun from the start.
The following teams have little GC chance now:
BMC
Orica
Lampre
Argos
Cannondale
UNI SA

Gilbert FTW

One thing should be noticed: Down Under is providing very good racing this last two seasons.

Turbo Durbo from a break away!!!!
Peter Sagan:
"I under-evaluated him (Gerald Ciolek) a little bit. I was watching Cancellara, who was trying to break free, and maybe I did too much work," Sagan said. "Ciolek stayed in the wheels and he took my wheel to do the sprint and was able to beat me. I went too early in the sprint."


17/03/13 Milan - San Remo

Peter Sagan:
“We went away in a break on the Oude Kwaremont, but then Cancellara went for it on the Paterberg and I wasn’t able to follow him,”

I have a feeling for Rojas to do well hes my big bet of night against ponzi. Cant believe some books have Greipel as favourite for this he will really need to want it to get to finish.

Great, I was thinking of not getting up tonight to watch TDU to actually get some sleep, instead I just woke up puking like crazy...:(

At least I can watch this bike race inbetween the puking (apologize in advance for far too much personal information :p).

Greipel has never done well on this stage earlier and now it's much harder than in previous editions. He'll have to be at his absolute best to even have a chance of staying in the peloton.

Yeh, I made $10 for free laying Greipel :o

Hopefully we get aggressive riding to make the break instead of the usual rubbish.
