I hope what Cadel has done ... highlights and brings more focus on Australian bike riding ... congrats

No longer will we just be an annoying obstruction on the road that cars have to dodge

I know some don't agree, but his team played a big part in this. He arrived at the final ITT mentally and physically fresher than ever before, the whole environment has been great for Cadel.

It's a pity that the significance of this will be lost on so many Australians.

the results today bear it out. I thought 57 sec was too much. In the end it wasn't nearly enough for the schlecks he tore 2 1/2 minutes out of them 8)

Cadel missed the Syndey Olympics MTB Gold with a broken collarbone. He was a shoe-in.

Now maybe next is London 2012 Gold :?: 8)

His team did a magnificent job considering the riders they have, no real pure climbers they were there when he needed them. BMC showed OML what could have been.
