:lol: Bling brings out the Saturday Night Fever celebration 8)

Your not wrong about the young guys Chuck, what about Durbridge! Been in a couple of breaks and looked like he tried everything he could for the sprints/kom points, hes gonna learn so much by trial and error. He certainly is not afraid to jump first, which I like.

And yeah the more I get into road racing as a sport the more I like it. I enjoy being a spectator more than racing myself, I have only had one race and it was fun and I will race again but I can take or leave it. Put it this way, I like touring way more than racing myself.

The 2009 tour was the first one I watched! Might be why im immune to the Lance effect :mrgreen: I had no idea the cool kids hated him :P Im kicking myself I did not get into it years ago but on the positive side I get to follow the young guys and girls of today as they go through their careers and that's really exciting.

Goss leads the bunch in- (another good sprint :) )
Robbie (not in :( ) but holds 4th overall, ahead of Greipel.
Meyer is the Leader now.

Robbie McEwen, could still be up for the Sprint Jersey,
with some points in the early King William Road sprint.
Then hopefully a big finish, will see him there.
Wish him all the best.

+2.

Great race overall to see the jerseys change hands often, and to see some of the great tactics and racing, and to have the decider come down to the final sprint is great.

Well done to the UniSA guys as well - Luke Roberts as King of the Molehills and 10th overall as well !!!
