I thought the ad segments were long, or at least longer than SBS's. Just an impression. Also miss race data eg. Location on course, distance to finish etc. Otherwise it's another Liggett and Sherwen Show. :wink:

Frequency of the ads increased during the third lap around Aldinga, but now that they're climbing Willunga they'd better wait until the race is finished surely :roll:

Wow Nathan Haas, great climb in that weather.

Love the BMC fans in the white bucket hats :lol:

And did I see the red devil too? Has he flown down here?

Teletubby!

Gerrans glancing at Valverde just before the line cost him the race imho. Should have jut pedalled through.

Valverde very emotional.

Paul with some horrible Spanish lol. He is mixing Spanish with Italian...WT?. Need to do some more conjugation lessons Paul!!

Victoria de oggi. Lol but nice try though :D Can imagine some Aussie commentator speaking loud English to Valverde to make him understand it abit more to no avail.

Anyway nice to have Gerrans have the ochre. Hope he keeps it for tomorrow too. Good boost for GreenEdge on home turf if he does.

It wasn't Spanish. More Spanitalian. And Phil calling him Alessandro (Italian) when in fact his name is Alejandro (Spanish) which an Aussie commentator would probably shorten to Al.

C'mon Paul and Phil, more practice at the Vuelta por favor!

Great stage and a fantastic finish that's as good as TdF stages, or better.

But back to topic. It was a great uninterrupted coverage toward the finish. Nice job Ch9 I'd say (starting from lowish expectation).

Must admit that the Movie team road a great technical race and any of you blokes and girls wanting to race well, I hope you took notice of the commitment
of the Movie teams lead up ride, to the sprint. This is what you need to do to reach the top of the sport or even, just your personal best in this sport
and others! :wink: :) (It's all about commitment) :idea:

Australia v Spain eh?

Jeez, this reminds me of our Davis Cup shenanigans a couple of years ago where Lleyton got heckled in Barcelona.

Anyhoo, c'mon home turf peeps. Hope those at the TdU give GreenEdge the edge for tomorrow. They won't get a welcoming reception in Europe.

Great race today. Would have loved to see Haas stay away and claim the stage. Gutted that Gerrans didn't get the win on the line. Tomorrow will be a fantastic finish.
