Excellent by Evans, a well deserved win.

Agree. - Fantastic race and great attacking riding - and Cadel was patient and went at the right time and then attacked....

Chapeau Cadel.

I don't think he meant that, he said "road races".

road races to me means 1 day, stage races means stage wins.. i dunno..

good god.. he just smiled.. :eek: is it me or does cadel have a very large head..

Let’s not forget how much work the whole Aussie team did early on to chased down the break. They had the plan, they knew Cadel had the goods and they delivered.

Congrats Australia!

I just cannot believe it- CADEL EVAS WON!!!- hats off to him and wishing he won't get the Rain bowl jersey curse.

Considering how much bad luck has plagued him since he traded in his knobblies for skinny tyres maybe he'll get a reverse effect from the rainbow curse and finally win a GT...

...we can live in hope...

Yah, I just looked it up yesterday, last road win was in '02. He better start practicing for the next time.

Does this salvage Silence-Lotto's year? If Retirement Shack doesn't pick up Horner, will he go back to S-L?

I think it makes S-L look worse. As soon as Evans takes off his S-L jersey, he wins a big race! :D

Yeah. In retrospect they look like jackasses starting to pull with more than 100k to go. Cunego had noone left at the end. They did all the hard work of breaking the race open, and in the end, they had noone to profit.

i fell asleep more than a couple of times during the race. i am very glad cadel evans won, we have discounted him too much. He seemed to be working hard this whole season, and finally paid off here. Congrats!!

Thing that impressed me with that attack is he really, really buried himself just when everyone was looking around/at the moment of indecision with riders still thinking, hesitating, not sure.

...and Evans must have known he had a chance to TT to hold to finish. Others may have been betting they could bring it back. Wrong guess on a guy who can climb AND TT.

He held no cards in reserve while others were shuffling their decks.

That attack was a Hinault-like attack...No question about it.

(Yes, it seems Cunego was out of position).

+1... I was about to post the same thing. If you can't stay awake during that race, you can't stay awake during any race....
