Tour de France, Giro d'Italia, Vuelta a España, Tour Down Under and more
Getting warmed up again for South Australia. The Cav will be there and as we all know, Armstrong (just follow the crowd of cameras and reporters).
I am hoping for young Aussie riders to make a bit of noise and getting a slice of the action.
Who is heading to the TDU to watch?

I'm already here ....
Since Cav's coming, it will be interesting to see who wins the sprint war. Cav, Farrar ot Greipel ?
Bragging rights indeed, as it'll be the first time all 3 go head to head ?
I'm seriously considering a roadtrip..... just a case of whether my partner(s) in crime can get the time off.
i will be back for more in 2011.
it is awesome event in an awesome place.
fingers crossed hoping for reasonable weather.
"Technology gives us much more information but Education is never be able to give us the skill to evaluate it"
And it's on !!!!
UniSA team member (Luke Roberts) has already taken the KOM points, and now there is a break with a couple of Aussies : Simon Clarke (Astana), Mathieu Perget (Ag2R), Mitch Docker (UniSA), Miguel Minguez and Jon Izaguirre (both Euskaltel-Euskadi)...
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi !!!!
My bad will update thread title
Oh nah, I didnt mean it like that. I just had a brain fade and forgot a was trying to avoid the results. Of course people would be talking about it in this thread!
Thanks for the edit anyway, that might save me tomorrow
If you feel a earth tremor over there its because IM EXCITED! and Kev and just turned in his grave....
So I kind of understand its a form thing and that Goss is just at a higher level than the others for this time of year. But.....its still hard not to be excited, not just for the current race but for his future. These kind of results will see him get more opportunities to win other races, via the team structure and his own confidence.
Its just crazy that every stage is not live on free to air tv here. I understand the riders might like the compact nature of the race, staying in the same hotel and stuff like that. But as a "tour down under" they are not exactly touring much of down under Showing it to the rest of the country who's name your trading on would be cool.
I'll probably get shouted down for not understanding the traditions of road racing nor the commercial considerations when running a tour. And they would have a point.....
Its just a pet peeve of mine, the Tour of Tasmania is the same. You would think with it being a small Island they would get around a fair bit of it! But no, they ride tiny crit courses and a few stages in the west/northwest.
Im sure its good for tourism and marketing the race to sponsors but to the lowly spectators its a bit cheeky, thats all. And yeah its selfish, of course Im sure its great for the people who live near the stages
Seems like a bit of a crash fest today.
Rumour has it that Bernie Sulzberger has a broken collarbone
A few others hit the deck including Cav, Greipel & some sky riders.
Swift for the win, McEwen 2nd (should be leading overall) and Brown 3rd.
This will make it interesting now !!!!
Sure was by the looks of it.
There's pics about of CJ Suttons frame completely broken in two, and Cav with plenty of blood on the scone.
Cav apparently not pleased with CJ.
And Sulzberger broken collar bone confirmed.
I really like the way you've embraced cycling since you joined the forums . You seem to grasp all things racing just fine from where I'm sitting. Don't worry if your opinion is not the same as everybody elses, how boring would that be
cav should shut his pie hole
When you look at the overhead shots of when Geraint Thomas went down, it looks like he squeezed (not purposely) a couple of guys fighting for a place against the barriers, they clipped him, and down he went with a whole lot of others.
Looked nasty on TV
Be interesting how many don't make the start today, and it really puts a new twist on the GC battle
It was only a bump on the head, so nothing was damaged (OK, pride was).
And since he hasn't been doing anything, it's not going to make a difference.
Media quotes... "fastest man on the planet"/"best sprinter in the world"
The big "showdown" is looking a bit lame, ATM.
(are Chav and Pil Leggit an item? Pil and others just can't get over it, reality)
The proof will be in the results. He may end-up one of the dropouts?
(and he should definately stay away from microphones, and interviews)
Just my thoughts, no malice.
