Tour of California

I must say I was a bit disappointed to hear Philippe Gilbert was withdrawing from the ToC.
Until I actually read why!

Nice to see Baden Cooke still there to help out at the sprint finish on stage 3 - first time I have seen him in the final leadout group all year.

I thought AUbicycles was doing ok, but sadly he was 2 minutes behind the peleton today. I mean there can't be two cyclists called Christopher Jones can there ? :mrgreen:

Sue him, Chris. (Conveniently applies to whichever one might read this)

He does undo a lot of PR damage Germany has done to itself over the years. Well, and Heidi Klum, too!

There's a ToC on at the same time as a proper race in Italy?

Henk Vogels on SBS opined it's the best race in the world that's not a Grand Tour, and got no contradiction from Mike or Matt.

There was a great interview with him after stage 4 where he talks about attacking with confidence ( "I'm m***er f***g Jens Voigt so they're not gonna catch me")

jens voigt on attacking with confidence


Then he forces the break in the crosswinds the next day and goes on to win the stage - "with the same move I have been using since the ice age".

I think he is a certainty to be on the Radioshack team at this year's tour - probably more so than Andy is.
