Haha, love the addition of a last 3 km profile. It's one of the rare instances when this distance is actually longer than the course ;)

Oh hey, it's part of the old F1 circuit. That was way better than Melbourne. Adelaide should get it back.
Yes, each year crowd numbers are going down for the F1 in melbourne yet the government keeps on spending money on it. It is losing big money. Melbourne can have tour down under for the F1.:D

Meh, better to save the energy for races that actually count.
True, I guess Kristoff doesn't want to draw attention to his super dooper speed! Shame BMC doesn't have their full leadout train with Van avermaet, Quinziato, Phinney, Wyss, Murphy to launch Kristoff.

Yeh, good luck with that ACF :rolleyes: Victorian Sport and Rec tried to flog it about 15 months ago, but didn't get anywhere. SA's a bit more savvy these days. How's that GP going anyway? :D

Well, if Murphy can guide him to a good position then they don't really need a train. You only need a train if you intend to take the lead of the peloton towards the end but if you have a good leadout who can navigate the field well and then hand off in hte right moment that is usually enough.

No chance. Not fast enough. And his lead-out will disappear at 350m to go.
Agreed, I don't see them having a chance until they get a leadout coach. They got it right in this race last year but won't do so this year. can sutton or henderson climb reasonably well?

Phinney as a leadout for Kristoff? I'm not so sure Kristoff is that much faster.
