Great to see Andy Schleck, he's looking good! What a rider he was.. he hopes more big riders will attend the races next year which should be a possibility, it should be a great race to prepare for Worlds when its not in Australia.
They're lucky with the weather. I live like 20k from where they are right now and it has been raining hard for 30 minutes straight. Looks like it wil stay dry for them till the last 30ish minutes of the race.
