Yeah, I'm looking at the SBS coverage at the moment and the first 1-2 k's are very narrow, as in barely a meter wide, which means that none of the teams are gathering much rhytum early.

Ballan has also fallen on that very same corner!

Amazing, Menchov already on his ***. :rolleyes:

The course is very narrow in parts, more suited to an individual tt - the road surface is also less than ideal in several parts - very difficult to build up or maintain rhythm there - this from the Dutch commentators who rode the stage themselves this morning.

He went down in the first corner (as did Ballan for Lampre).
