A bit more on the Roche/Gadret scene at AG2R from the
Independant.ie

It seems that Gadret has just signed a new 2 yr deal with them too and Roche has a year to go .... :shock:

Just saw an interview with LA on SBS done before last nights stage, apparently he's "ignorant of pro cycling culture and norms". He didn't have a problem with Contadors attack but did have a crack at his denial that he didn't see Andy's mechanical.

Sorry jules but I think your assertion that those who have taken the alternate view are "ignorant" is off the mark. And those in the peleton are far from unanimous on this issue.

i'm going to plead tony abbott on this - not everything that i say off the bat should be taken as gospel :)

what i really meant was that riders should take into account matters beyond the letter of the rules. i acknowledge that the circumstances of that particular incident were not necessarily as clear cut as my earlier post may have implied.

I think one good thing to come from Andy's chain issue is that tonight's stage is going to be a ripper... Andy is going to have to go all out to get some serious time on Contador before the TT...
I'd rather see Andy be up by 4 minutes to make Contador attack to get time back, but as a spectator, it's set up to be some good viewing tonight (I just hope Andy can get in front by 1+ minute so the TT still plays a part in the end result)

Hey folks,

Just signed up to see if anyone knew about somewhere in Melbourne a bunch of Tour geeks could head out and watch the stage tonight somewhere? Preferably with the commentary up and stuff.

Sorry if this has been covered, had a quick peruse and couldn't find anything.

Cheers

Wow...no love amongst the Spanish today...Sanchez just came down very heavily...Contador tired to stop Sastre attacking by having a word but he just rode off.

The anticipation is like before a GF, really looking forward to this :twisted: .

Is it too much to ask that an Aussie or two get in the break, would love to see Cadel or Mick win on such a legendary climb

4 stages of this years Vuelta live on SBS :D :D

getting to the pointy end now guys, (and girls) ive got money on menchov and van den broek, allthough i like contador and love Slhsheleckckk im hoping for an upset somehow. Was happy to see sanchez stack it (and happy to see that he was not too injured) i dont think he can keep up with the afore mentioned.

Go Andy.. drop him now. 4kms

there talking about the Americans are happy that their bikes are getting a good show... but what about the famous chain drop - was that a mechanical or rider error? Don't know if there was a definate answer on that.
