Hey all,
Just wondering does anyone know what caused the Cancelara crash?
Also what happened to Sagan in the race?

I turned off watching early as I couldn't put up with the poor commentary/lack of gap times/progress etc. it was like watching a sportive. not that sportives are bad, they are not! but you know what I mean. They showed the guys taking p!ss breaks. jeez.

Rigos success is still being treated brilliantly in Colombia though.

And whats more, what we saw here is no accident. For someone like Uran to contest the win and get a silver medal on a course like this, I don't think even Ryo saw that coming.

indeed- Rigo is being praised in all corners of my country as a hero-and honestly- he's outdone all "realistic" expectations for the Colombian team. overall I'm extremely happy for him & hoping SKY will take good care of him, because he's a star in the making.:)

Its funny that if you think about it, probably not 1 of the eventual podium would have even made the team for a lot of the nations today. Certainly not Britain, Belgium Canada, probably not Spain, Italy Australia.

For Holland all 3 would have made it :eek:
