Hi Mr Pot - meet Mr Kettle...

He at least has the excuse of a coupla jugs of adrenalin racing through his racked, breathless frame, frazzling his brain and mouth...

...yours?
Oh so that excuse is alright for Cav but not for Evans? I see...I am maintaining the same standards as others have set on this. Provide me with some evidence about Evans crapping on in an interview like Cav.

They haven't brought a train to the Tour.

You really think EBH fell behind today?
They have three riders for the sprints, Thomas, Swift and Hagen. If they stop sprinting on both sides of the road they can do something here.

Look dude I'm not sure this is a path you want to go down. Evans has mellowed out lately but two/three years ago his interviews were awful. Step on my dog and I'll kill you etc. etc.

I think they were trying to split the pack in the crosswind on that section because it was exposed. The crashes were co-incidental.
I thought so to, but wasn't sure whether that was what caused the crashes or whether the crashes presented the Garmin boys an opportunity. Does anyone else think the intermediate sprint caused Gesink and Brajkovic's crash or was that just bad luck. Cameras didn't show much here in Australia on SBS.

I figured Garmin thought they could get CVV, Danielson and Ryder some time, cause they need it. I also have to ask, how big is the hole in Gesink's leg? Scratch that is superficial or a not severe but somewhat damaging puncture? Last thing he needs.

Provide me an example of Cadel getting treatment from the officials even close to what Cav consistently has to put up with

no. DId you see his post race interview? The bull**** was flying out of his mouth.
He just finished a hard race so there is adrenaline. Also HTC have been dominating the sprints and the Tour has changed the finishes to make it harder. I don't see the bull**** your talking about. Pull your head in and look objectively for once.

Wasnt able to watch today; how bad was Contadors crash? any videos?
Not very bad I think. It wasn't really captured on video as far I could see, there was only a helicopter shot that was obscured by the trees along the road, but his clothes weren't ripped up much, he didn't look like he was in pain and there was no blood.

Renshaw finished 2:25 down. I'm not sure why, but that's why you didn't see him leading out.

It's too bad about Brajkovic. He's a promising rider.

it does seem odd. that last 400m doesnt seem very straight.

Heres a closer look
Eddie got robbed. The finish line was 300 metres further down the road than on the map. He was leading at the 300m mark

It is my opinion. The hypocrisy of some people amazes me.

He have the TV moto a thumbs up during the chase back so he should be fine.

Good to see Cav responding to various morons in the best way possible.

Bummer for EBH, a real flyer - better pay more attention to the road book for tomorrow...

EDIT I take that back if Dim is correct.

Ok, I'll push you off a bike at 60km/h on a descent and then you have to ride up the aspin, peyresuoude, tourmalet and hautacam and then after that I will hit with something in the area that you hurt yourself. How would you like that?:rolleyes:
Everyone knows it was Mike Tomalaris touching Evans. The head reporter of the sole Aussie tv media contingent at the Tour. Something the Aussie press hid very well for quite some time. Think about it dude.;)

Oh so that makes it ok :rolleyes: again, pull your head in and TRY to be objective and think before you type
 
This Tour looks more like a Giro as far as crashes/bizarre mishaps go. I hope Gesink isn't impacted too heavily. He does have a few days before he has to be at his best, so that's good.

I think the eventual winner will be the guy who just stays out of trouble!

Well now you know why HTC always send Zabel to scout the finish once the banners have been put up. The road book isn't gospel.

It's a shame for Edvald but he looked great today, I'm sure he will have more chances. If Sky can ever get the G-EBH-Swifty train to actually work together in the final 2km of a stage they have a real chance at a win. If it wasn't for Geraint's charge from 1km to go Cavendish wouldn't have won today.

stuff like "please don't touch me" or "don't touch my shoulder" or simply walking away from the reporter the first time he touched him comes to mind before falcon punching him.

I love it when people only answer a part of my post. What bull**** was he spouting? And what hypocrisy are you talking about?
