[quote=""Jeff"":1ob5pzp7]That Belgian announcer for ES is just horrible.

Some people just dont have a voice for commentary, and he is one of those.

I think he's doing a fine job. Not spectaculair, but a good job.[/quote]They had two very good ones.

Danny Nelissen and one I forgot the name of but he's the agent of Bauke Mollema.

Now we have to deal with this Belgian dude en José Been...
So now he's a GT winner. Surely that means he'll have a significantly better team around him next year.

If there's a lot of TT km's in next years TDF I'd love to see him go after Froome.

Interesting to see whether this will be a one-off or he will confirm it next year or even this year. The signs so far are it isn't a one-off

I don't think another GT win is a guarantee. But it's not going to be a one-off in terms of performance. He's going to compete for many more GT victories unless something unexpected happens.

Another GT-win isn't a garantuee at all. That's why it's so important to grab your chance when it arrives. Just look at Kruijswijk: maybe you will never get another opportunity.

What a win!!!! YESSS!!!
I'm not sure where he'll land up in the list of greats but it's possible that a new era starts with TD. He might just be the greatest rider of his generation especially as Contador, Froome, Vibali are much much older than him.

Hope he writes his name in a lot of history books.

Chapeau BigMouth Tom!
