Surprisingly good time trial by Mollema.

to be honest wasn't that surprised. this guy is a very good talent in terms of stage racing. Pity about his season last year, bad luck.
I am really looking forward to him at the giro.

Is Paul Martens usually good in the chrono?

Well it's an early season race with a lot of riders just riding to make the cut and HTC and Saxo competing for the teams classification. So I would not read a lot into someone finishing 8th at 28sec.Simon Gerrans was 16th at 48!

PS your sig does not make sense!

Because people spell 'peloton', 'peleton', I'm just correcting them in a real pedantic way.

He isn't exactly the world's biggest talent in time trialing, so this is a very good result for him. In fact, he's never done better among the pros. Hence my surprise.

I remember him posting a couple decent similar results in the itt (can't remember the exact races of my head). Maybe not up against such a field though. But he is young and growing so progress is on the cards. I am glad for his impressive form though :D I'd like to see rabo give him more leadership roles personally.

Final stage today. Feillu (Vacansoleil), Vicioso (Andalucía), Marzano (Lampre) and Wiggins (Sky) in a breakaway. They have a lead of 1'38' on main field.

I assume Wiggins is either trying his legs out or is going up the road in advance of an attack by Lofkvist.

HTC won't let this slip though.

My fave translation so far was: "Wool tries to open hole in the ascent to Cómpeta" :):)

which clearly should be "Lana tries to open a gap on the ascent to Competa," and I don't even speak Spanish remotely! So much for internet tranlation services and their obsession with bodily functions?:rolleyes:

Myself I rather like that the Andalusia team has a rider called "Vicious person".

Apparently Simon "Gerrans" Gerro has been working on his chrono over the winter (according to a CN article a couple of weeks back?).
