roger hammond...

2 podiums and a 10th in the last 5 years... but admittedly, today was far too hilly for him, but we have had a classics rider.. one of those 2nd places he was working for a team mate...

and im sorry, but when cancellara starts attacking on hills and dropping the likes of valverde, evans and cunego... cripes

When i said that you had very good cobblestones riders I had Hammond specifically in mind.

The Flemish races are my favorite, and so I'll never fail to give someone credit for podiums in races like Paris-Roubaix and Gent-Wevelgem, but surely you can't compare this race to Paris-Roubaix.

So you haven't seen a bike race in ten years?

Evans attacks all the time. "Evans doesn't attack" is another stupid myth like "Valverde always has a bad day"

:p

you know what i mean, hes hardly renowned for being an attacking rider...

well done the aussie team, they did all the work initially trying to pull the break back... but this place is going to be unbrearable for a few days... theres some very devoted cadel worthhippers who just aint gonna shut up...
