Are any of the teams trying to put pressure on Griepel? I don't want griepel to make it to the finish because then it will be a very boring finish. Lloyd's bridged the gap. Go lloydy!

So its been 10 minutes on ABC radio with Ligget and I dont think hes mentioned Lance once. Which is nice.

On the other hand hes telling stories about how he bought land with a bunch of birds on it, Hippo's come to his back door, and how his friend got chased by a lion while MTBing.

Why cant they talk about the race? :mad:

I actually love it when he goes off tangents like this. Most of the time there isn't too much action going on at the race and how often can you talk about riders just pedaling.

On another note, Phil better watch out because hippoes are some of the most dangerous animals on earth. They may look calm and peaceful in the zoo, but anyone that has watched animal shows no that they are a threat waiting to happen.

Any streaming video on the web?

No, go on abc radio through steephill. Entertaining stage. my tip is Rojas... Lloyd and Clarke are caught :(

There is a tailwind now... Columbia are struggling. YES!!!!!! Their will be time gaps even if their is a finish.
 
Ah, Not a windows person.

Anywho, can someone post the top 3 finishers when known? The CN live coverage seems to be 30 minutes behind my current time, so perhaps the race is about 5 min from finishing?

Edit: Maybe the CN live coverage clock is exactly 30 min off. Or is Australia one of those confused countries that has time zones off by 30 min?
