Eurosport were advertising it for Sunday night but it's not in the programme :?:

Gerro for the win. Gilbert doesnt have the form of last year and Boonen is out injured :(

Noticed that, can't see how they would not show it, and Fleche Waloone I hope.

You need to keep a close watch on the Foxtel program guide, it often doesn't get updated.
I'm in the habit now of checking each night before bedtime in case I need to set a recording.

Agree with Vander, this is the kind of race that Bling could do well in. He seems a similar type rider to Sagan just not as advanced (seemingly).I'll go for Sagan to put his good form to use and win. He is riding yeah :P

According to Foxtel website it's on Sunday, 11pm, Eurosport...

I think Sagan also, but Gerrans is in with a shot... Hopefully.

Cadel to ride for the team....

I kinda hope he proves to have the best form and has a crack for himself in at least one of the three.

Anyone going to watch this via a live stream online? If so, could you link me to where you'll watch it?

Normally best to go to http://steephill.tv and click through the links until you find the best live stream.

Good finish, Phil Gil nearly did it, surprising to see gasparotto kick that second time. Geez he was buggered afterwards though.

Anyone know of a link to an archive of the race video?
Tried to record it but Download Helper for Firefox did not recognise the stream.
I guess there must be a way to record streaming video but so far I have not worked it out.

Gerro finished in 20th, 19 seconds behind. I don't know what happened to him on the last climb. Did he get caught behind in the crash? I was surprised to see the remaining GreenEDGE riders come to the front and put a shift in towards the end, that's not usually the teams style.

I saw him in a chase group... he didn't look like he was too worried, wasn't on the front chasing anyway. Next I heard he was on the bus.

I saw him getting held up by the crash not that much but probably gave it up after then and just rolled over the line not pushing extremely hard.

Here is your Tuesday morning laugh.

"Frank Schleck declares himself one of the strongest at Amstel Gold"

I didn't see him all race on the telecast I watched. :lol:
