Shame they only showed the last 150m overhead; all the interesting stuff was 300-150.

Cav says he's written off MSR (the way it's been raced the last 2 years it's probably fair to do so as well).

Currently lighter than last year with lower peak watts.

Say what you want about cav but hes a great interviewee straight after races. Incredibly good at recalling exactly what happened even at 70 kph with riders everywhere

Cavendish is a fantastic sprinter but I hate his attitude when giving interviews!! He barely looks at the journalist and always says the same things..thanks to my team. it starts to sound rehearsed and unmeaning.

LOL. He always say the same thing. Nothing. Might as well pre-record an interview a year and play it in all races he wins.
Do you want to watch better bike racing? => Team radios (not race radio) must go!

No he didn't actually say the exact same things. Yes he thanked his team, but whats wrong with that after they rode solidly at the front for seemingly the whole of the day. Im referring more specifically to his tactics in the last 2 kilometers and how he decided which wheel to follow. Its the same with the tour stage last yr when he talked about following freires wheel

Can't remember them being so slow with the results in previous years, sad to see things go backwards.

Anyone know what odds Markus was?

I checked them last night don't recall him being inside the 200/1 list. Well done if anyone had him each way.
