Luke Durbridge has given away his track Olympic dream.
Durbridge switches focus to road with track worlds off the agenda
I wonder what chance we see both Durbridge and Cam Meyer in the GE TDF team.
Yup, I think in August he is allowed to race. Needs to find a team in the meantime.
Thats another GT for him I guess.
I hear that GreenEdge will have a rider retire (and therefore an empty and available squad place) in May.
And I thought I liked you .....
Whilst I admire his skills and capabilities, can't stand the guy personally. Much like Schumacher - awesome driver, but personally a tosser. Same for Bertie.
Shame on you Mr D.
See I loved the way he fought out last years tour. Lots of bad luck, tired body, ordinary team but you did not hear him complain and he just kept attacking them. Watching him attack up a hill is a thing of beauty.
You want tossers, try team Frandy. Them's tossers my friend.

Agreed. To me he became more human in last years tour.
Unfortunately its just one of those human conditions, like as previously mentioned M. Schumacher, you get so tired of them winning all the time you find reasons not to like them. But from all accounts they're mostly decent blokes good at what they do. Not trying to sound superior or anything cause I'm guilty of it too. Just don't get me started on that little German prick Vettel...
The only down side to Eurosport is having to listen to the commentators bleat on about how good Bradley is. It would appear he has the TDF wrapped up already. I hope he and Cav have a punch up over who gets support, prefferably during a stage.
Certified Brand Snob
Yep, he needs to be taken down a peg or two.
Funny that he is German like Schuey ....
Nice result for Greenedge

Let's hope this is the trigger for some results in the bigger races coming up shortly. A stage win for Goss would be a great confidence booster for his upcoming defence of MSR.
I watched the Gerrans sprint a couple of times last night. Knowing that he came from no where, I kept and eye on where he was. He was left of screen the entire time. But way back. Then you see 7 riders in the overhead shot. No Gerrans. But when he comes through he is flying. Just a matter of a split second late. To do that he has to have great form.
I saw Gerrans come flying up the outside and new he just left it to late. I was really hoping he would have another go last night, but crashed on a traffic Island with a couple of k's to go.
Man, GE is built for Time Trialing, if they can't win the TT's they're in big trouble.
I'm worried whether they'll pick up enough WT points for next season. GE will really heavily on Gerrans and Goss to bring home the wins this season.
Nobody is talking about Cam Meyer at Tirreno-Adriatico but he's snuck into 3rd place overall only 13 seconds down....
1 Christopher Horner (USA) RadioShack-Nissan 19:01:54
2 Roman Kreuziger (Cze) Astana Pro Team 0:00:07
3 Cameron Meyer (Aus) GreenEdge Cycling Team 0:00:13
4 Peter Sagan (Svk) Liquigas-Cannondale 0:00:21
5 Danilo Di Luca (Ita) Acqua & Sapone 0:00:22
6 Fabian Cancellara (Swi) RadioShack-Nissan 0:00:30
7 Paolo Tiralongo (Ita) Astana Pro Team 0:00:32
8 Vincenzo Nibali (Ita) Liquigas-Cannondale 0:00:34
9 Joaquin Rodriguez Oliver (Spa) Katusha Team 0:00:35
10 Rinaldo Nocentini (Ita) AG2R La Mondiale 0:00:36
We know he's good against the clock but does anyone think he can pull back 13 seconds from Horner in 9kms on the final stage? A tough ask given Horner's abilities but maybe a sneaky chance?
Still probably best not to look too far ahead after what happened to Levi last night at Paris-Nice....

Nice pick up Chuck. Hadn't noticed that myself.
Poor Levi. I felt sorry for him in Nice. But he showed his experience. If you are going to crash, might as well crash into the medical motorcycle. He looked shattered after it, confidence.
Race to the sun, and how well are Vacen Solei (spelling) doing?
Yeah felt for him too. I think he really fancied his chances of pulling back the ten seconds on Wiggins tonight. Would have been exciting.
Another good showing for GE
Um, can we wait until after the mountain stages are finished to see what the final time gaps are between Horner and the rest of the field. In saying that, I was rather impressed with Cam Meyer last night. I thought after the flat stages that the GreenEdge boys would struggle.
Oh #(AT)* no coverage on Eurosport tonight.
I think he's good for cycling. I remember being very impressed with him at a press conference he gave after his Cofidis team left the 07 Tour when one of it's riders tested positive. He was pragmatic and articulate imho.
I think he's a genuine contender for this years Tour. Some who feel he's not able to win a GT might point to last years Vuelta, but there'll be nothing like Angliru at the Tour and twice the ITTing. If he times his conditioning right he'll be in amongst it for the overall.
A few dissappointments in early form. BMC - Evans, Thor and Gilbert, all looking a bit flat. I think it will be interesting to watch them and see how long it takes to get form from where they are. Are they underdone for this time of year?
Goss, Tony Martin?
Let's not mention Menchov and Basso, oops I just did.
Bit early of course but looking good.
Classics, Fabian, Boonen, Oscar, Hausler (ish), the Missle (killer form), Westra, Sagan... etc
Tours, is Wiggo too early, everyone else either hasn't raced or is looking poor.
