Woah!!! what a sprint!!!

Freire followed Feillu and came at the front too early, needed to shift to the train of Hushovd...

Rabobank... Menchov loses 1m, my god what a drama

If I were Breukink, I would put in my resignation and pull the team from the Tour

The 500m of 6.6% make it difficult for the sprinter's trains. If not a breakaway, I'd think some action on the penultimate km. Maybe Canc will go? He's the type to pedal away from the bunch to win in yellow :)

Otherwise, I'd go with one of the bigger sprinters such as Hushovd, or maybe a break takes it.

Learn from the master. I called it on page 1. ;)

thats not quite correct my friend

its turned out quite well - stuey is riding better than ever and both are still mates so its all good :D

off to watch the Ashes so goodnight and apologies for offending anyone :)
 
An exciting final 30kms.
LTD falling won't be making much of a difference, then.
Maybe Dennis should have done the Tour of Austria?:rolleyes:

Brave effort by Dave, but not really the climb it was supposed to be.
Hence Thor pipping Oscar.
Cadel gets a top 10 place. He's on the up!

What is the story then. There was only room for 1 sprinter who targeted the TDF green jersey (at the time).

Stuey is a profesional as well as seemingly a nice guy (I know his brother but not him) so no suprise he his still friends with Thor. I'm glad it all worked out but it could have been the end of his career after the team he signed up with folded before it even raced. Lucky when he got the one year trial with CSC that he didn't have one of his horrid crashes early in the season. I'm sure he wouldn't change it as I doubt he would have won Roubaix on any other team.
