Matti Breschel, winning races since leaving Rabobank. A story told not once, but a million times in other instances (like Matthews) :D
Nah in this particular case, it wasn't Rabobank fault. He just gets a huge amount of injuries. It's actually amazing the amount of good performances he had in WC.

Yeah he has been injured for almost 3 years on and of. This year he missed the spring because he had a madras blown into his front wheel in Qatar (I think it was) and crashed.

Havent yo heard? Andy only rides skoda tour to have fun...-thats right, to have fun.

Btw, are there some genius in here who is good with internet and stuff, it seems there have been some TV coverage of the race, so i would ask if somebody could check if there would be some video or highlights available out there from the stages?

It's weird - usually RTL Luxembourg shows a short recap every night, but this year I haven't been able to find them on their site! Only of the prologue. I wonder what's up with that. In comparison, they showed recaps, interviews and background stories on the recent Fleche du Sud, a 2.2 amateur race.

Hmm yeah its weird Cristian. All I found too was the prologue. I suppose you have seen the little piece of the final of stage 3 on TV2?
Maybe it can give some more clues?

I think Danish TV2 sent a team to Luxembourg after Breschel's first stage win. So the clip you mention is most likely something the TV2 crew filmed themselves with stationary cameras. They also made an interview with Breschel after stage 3 (the TV2 mic is just visible at one point):

Edit @Butterhead: The link you posted doesn't work because CN profanity filter changes the link! I had the same problem when I posted the link yesterday. Use this link:

Edit2: Some of it was actually shot by moto-cams so maybe I'm wrong. I guess there must have been som local production of the race?
