The work he did at the bottom of the climb cost him but probably not too much. Still he did well for a guy just about to retire.auscyclefan94 said:Evans still did quite well...shame he couldn't win but 3rd overall is a darn good achievement for someone who is nearly 38
In hindsight, Dennis is right. In reality perhaps the right moment to press the go button was clouded by the fact his lungs were trying to jump out of his throatLupi33 said:interesting interview with Dennis
said Richie went too late
Nah. You're never sure who's truly going to have the legs in the end and they didn't have anything to lose, really. It's not like they were leading the race.auscyclefan94 said:

So, assuming that Porte doesnt grab some time bonuses tomorrow (and I very much doubt that he can), Dennis has it. Evans probably has more concern for his spot if Dumoulin can sprint, but given that tomorrow is his last appearance in a WT event, he might just contest the finish.Jspear said:
problem with a TT stage is it could decide the whole race every year if its individual, and if its team then Orica will blow everyone away and its a no contest for the rest of the race.movingtarget said:A criterium on the final stage is always an anti climax unless two sprinters are first and second on GC. The race is better than it was but a few more changes could improve it even more. I think a TT stage sometimes would be good.
