Thanks for the update Susan and bad news for SKY and Arveson. Was hoping he would do good this season after being a good helper at Saxo the last couple of years.Susan Westemeyer said:The stage has opened with a bang, as Sky's Kurt-Asle Arvesen crashed one km into the day and broke his collarbone.
I'm glad to see that both Boonen and the Cervelo rider aren't just giving up and conceding the race to Sky after the TTT. While the landscape may not help a break, the wind potentially can as long as the front duo don't fade. Ideally, I would like Cervelo to get the win after being penalized for such a minor offense yesterday.Mellow Velo said:Ouch!
Big time gap to the break. Boonan and Cervelo 40" or so ahead of Sky and the peloton, with 50kms to go for the leading pair.......
God knows.. **** up city.. we all knew about the wind..Mellow Velo said:Where are Sky? Something to do with the crash?
Only Ian Stannard and EBH not in the bus group.
all the sky riders bar two in the g3 apparently..Publicus said:These gaps are huge! Wiggins is in which group?
ANd if we have no time gaps on tv, and none of the press have maps of the run in, it makes you wonder what info the teams have..Susan Westemeyer said:It is very confusing as to who is where. Even the German tv commentator are complaining about the lack of info.

could this be what life will be like without race radios
edit on sky: seems flecha, boasson hagen, thomas, and stannard all in G2 for sky (ie second main group on the road behind the two leaders)
assuming we know any of the times.. lol...pmcg76 said:Looks like the lead two will defo stay away, who's gonna win and looks like we will have a new leaders and the Sky boys are dropping out of contention.
Could be a number if reasons- punctures, a couple of riders could have waited for arvesen at first just don't know. I don't think this will be the end of the worlddimspace said:assuming we know any of the times.. lol...
something has gone very wrong for everyone today.. but sky certainly have dropped the ball.. inexcusable, everyone knows about the winds, you simply cannot with three jerseys on the team not be towards the front.. major major **** up...
As I've already said could be a number of reasons. Ebh certainly had one and with arvesen crashing out anything could have happened. It's really childish all this sky bashing when instead nobianchigirl said:Boonen gave an interview to Equipe in which he said winning the race wasn't rocket science, you just had to be at the front all the time. Begs the question why the MJ wan't.
The same ones who said yesterday this race didn't matter? I find it all childish. Prefer to concentrate on fact good racing in feb, great win for topsport and I have some cycling to watch when home from workMellow Velo said:Dim: I suspect AusCF and Bro will find much mileage in today's Sky performance.
