lol, swift said he absolutely hates tt's on his twitter page.
TTTs are not TTs though. Sprinters are always very useful in TTTs because of the short, intense efforts. And as an earlier track rider too that should suit him. Henderson would perhaps do better though.

well he said that he hates it when people pass him in tt's. surely having people around you in a ttt is apart of it. He might be good at it but he doesn't like them at all.

Swift probably hates TTTs because of the volume of track work the BC academy do. It wasn't unusual 4-5 years ago for the BC academy guys to be doing 2hr 5-up TTTs on the blue line around the track as quality work.

Nobody likes TTTs. In an ITT at least if you don't have the legs or whatever it's only your problem, but in a TTT you have to keep up with your mates. Long TTTs are brutal (or were, since I don't think we've had one of those in a while).

Impressive stuff from Sky in the last 5km, other teams were very weak in comparison. Freire looked fast in the end but couldn't get to Swift.

Yeah - my stream died with a Km to go and reappeared 50m from the line, but at least Sky have finally realised that 4th man needs to lead under 1km to go if you're going to have enough to reach the finish.

TTTs are fantastic fun, riding the National TTT here in the UK two years ago is one my most cherished cycling memories.

My stream was crapping out constantly in the final 3k so I missed most of the action, but great to see Swifty getting a win. Well deserved for Sky, they worked their asses off chasing the break and led out perfectly. Super G has been kinda invisible at this race so I'm glad to see him showing his face even if only in the lead-out.

Ha Ha. Tirreno Evans gets a Trident, today he gets what looks like a piece of sheet metal with Tour of Romandie etched on it...

Wonder which one is going to be his favorite??

Also yay Vignano finally paying some dividends - such a cheap buy he's paid half back with one 2nd place.
The stream was so poor I thought Vigano still was a Sky rider for a moment.

Outraged email time? CQ have him in 3rd.
The swine. In these circumstances my only complaint it being lied to - I took the result off them earlier, and they had him 2nd - sadly it seems it was not to be.
