much as it pains me to big up an Ozzie, especially a (former) Grade A whiner like Cadel, he has been the most exciting, go for it, gutsy rider this year. And not by a small margin either. I would have loved him to catch the spinters and Vino with their pants down yesterday, and he was sooo close. Good work fella.

He still rides ugly like you'd expect from an MTBer though - can someone get him some lessons from eg Millar in how to ride pretty?

Millar can certainly teach Evans a thing or two about how to throw your bike a long way.:) I do agree that Evans' riding style isn't pretty, although it's effective.

So there are only three classics now? Paris tours, amstel and classica san sebatian. Fleche wallonne is a very prestigous race and IS a classic. The riders know it as a classic.

They know it as a semi-classic. It's not as prestigious as the two other races in the same week, which are classics. Not saying it isn't an important race, but not that important.
