Moreno was great here last year riding for Valverde. I'll go with him.
...[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? Does anybody think for a second that a secret that big wouldn't come out? Bill Stapleton

I think Thomas is in a lot of trouble here. There are so many within 15 seconds of the lead and with time bonuses on the line he will have to mark ten cyclists. It's very hard to do at willunga. I think slagter is going to win here

Rojas FTW, perhaps 1-2 with Moreno.

There's no way Rojas here. He might be sent as a decoy but with Moreno being so close in the gc he will work for him

Gilbert gonna take it.
No thread for gc anymore, so they won't mark him.

Moreno or Machado to take the gc lead.

Exactly what I was thinking. But only if, somehow, Machado fails to deliver.

Wilco crashed today, let's see how he'll recover. Willunga could be a good finish for Slagter, I think.

I don't think so, stage 2 suited Gilbert better and he failed there. I doubt he has the form to compete here.

Imo it will come down to a sprint between Slagter and G. Hopefully for Slagter there's one man between them so he takes the GC by 1 second :)

I don't know much about Slagter, he strikes me as a good river in short uphills, won't this be too much for him?

In stage 2 Machado looked more confortable than him

Wow man, look at Machado and his yellow bracelet. The man looks so comfortable he still has time to send his thoughts to all the unicorns with cancer.

Thanks for the preview ACF.. hope you're ok after your hospital visit.

Gerrans for the win on Australia Day!
The fact is, no one has done more to make doping in sports seem like an evil than Lance Armstrong in his prime, desperately, passionately, ferociously guarding the perception that he was clean.
