Are any of the events being televised or streamed online? I've searched the TV guides and Googled online but haven't had any luck so far.

No live coverage :cry:

Cycling Central is doing a highlights package for their TV show (SBS), which should be shown on next Sundays show.

Congrats to everyone who managed to finish the course - 55 out of 116 starters in the U23 men, and 45 out 78 women did not finish the course.

There was a crash 50 metres into the womens race :shock:

Can someone please explain why Alexis Rhodes (Garmin/Cervelo) rode an un-disguised Specialized bike to win the title?

I'm sure her new employers are going to be really impressed by that one - not!

Possibly because she hasn't received her bike yet - Im sure her team were well aware. Tonight she is heading off overseas to the team training camp, I am sure her new bike will be waiting for her when she gets there.

Same as Robbie McEwan hasn't received his RadioShack clothing kit, and had to go buy one from a bike shop due to shipping problems (hence why he is wearing last years kit, not the new 2011 RS kit) :shock:

Yeah, but surely as a Pro rider she should have the nous to cover all references to her sponsors direct competitor with black/white electrical tape?

Apart from the much heralded ride by Bobridge, for mine the ride in the mens' RR was by Lachie Norris a young MTBer vying for the single spot for London 2012. I'm sure one or two of the DSs will take notice. I was told by his mentor last week he was on form and to be in the top 5 was a class ride. Self possessed and unassuming, this guy will go places.

Can't see official results yet but my mate Ryan is telling me his wife Tarryn Heather has 2nd in the elite womens tt by 3 seconds. Don't know if that is progress or final result. She is in our club, not a bad effort from D grade 18 months ago :shock: 8)
