Since when has flash been a problem on Android?


Since you can't find any flash downloads to get it to work.

Nearly as bad as apple.... No just kidding, nothing is as bad as that.

Seems everyone wants to get rid of flash sites.

Flash is gone in the latest Android devices. I've been able to combine a hacked Flash with the Firefox beta.

Great stage with awesome attack ascents and high speed twisty descents. How the hell they ride that fast up a Cat 2 climb is beyond me. Great ride by Cadel to get 2nd.

Eurosports on Foxtel are showing it.

Well, the downhill was great. The pace set by Hejsedal was too much for about half a dozen riders who ended up coming a cropper on one corner or other.

Cadel's sprint was from a fair way out - very pleasing. The rest of the bunch were keen to stop him ... there were bonus seconds on offer.

I agree, looking good. He is at the front when he should be and looking strong in 'sprint' finishes.

You're right about Cadel, surprising really considering the year he has had & his ambitions for le Tour.

Even more surprising was Sir Bradley dropping out the back with 3 & a bit km to go, although he probably wouldn't have lost much time but for the crash in front of him

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a good showing by Cadel.

Wiggins losing a bit of time was a combination of bad luck and being gapped a bit at a crucial point.

Main thing though, it will annoy the hell out of him. Yay !!!!! That and the Sky bosses saying that Froome is Le Tour leader too .... :D

Seems like Wiggo is using up some of his luck already, and owed Cav a HUGE thanks.

Good thing is that Cadel is still doing well, but ITT will be the big test to see what the GC looks like for week 2

Leigh Howard out of the Giro with a broken collar bone from Stage 6. :(

Came across Cameron Wurf's daily blog with his impressions from inside the Giro, a really good read.

It's always nice when a rider who's always riding in the service of other riders has his day in the sun....

Not wrong Chuck - a well deserved win & some decent gaps opened up in the last 5 kms. Also it was nice to see Cadel doing well, & he he still had a teammate at the end

Just reading about it now.

Go Aussies !!!

Well done for Hansen, he's a tough guy !!!

It will be interesting to see how Wiggo goes from here. It's a lesson in how to keep going when things go wrong, as Cadel has found out in the past.

Great to see Cadel still doing well. Looking good so far.

Sunday's stage will be a cracker !!

Not only that, but the rest of the BMC team is making the occasional appearance at the front to keep Cattle Dog company.

Great ride by Adam! The huge smile crossing the finish line said it all. People were falling off the ride left, right and centre on the descents. Not a fun stage for many of them.

Awesome ride by Hansen. He also proved you don't need wide handlebars to breath whilst climbing. He runs 38cm wide bars :o

Good to see Cadel move up on GC too.

That's the 4th stage in a row that hasn't had a smooth run for Wiggo (bike issues, crashes and losing time). His demeanour must be being really challenged !!!!

Great ride by Cadel and a real surprise.

Go Cadel !!!! Interesting to note that Cadel was the quickest up the climb at the end !!
