Aaarrggghhhh the Greenedge train drives me nuts. The always lead out far to early and get swamped in the last 400 metres by the sprinters sitting right behind their train.

And Renshaw had it for the taking and didn't jump when it opened up for him.

Sometimes, if you can't win, getting your lycred ar$e on the tele is the next best.

Can anyone explain to me what Baden Cooke's role is meant to be in the green edge team?

Awesome!

Anyone know the last Australian to win a major international stage race, Cadel excepted?

Gerrans won Milan-San Remo last year. Goss the year before that.
Well done Richie, a bright star.

Nice work Ritchie. Would seem to be our next GC hope after Cadel.

It'd be nice. IIRC, someone (on Cycling Central???) had the conspiracy theory that he was never a Gerry Ryan acolyte (Jayco/AIS) and wasn't chased very hard by Orica-Greenedge.

Micheal Rodgers has won 4 or 5 stage races... some of them rather big.
His time is pretty much over now but he was definately a shining hope... I remember watching him in the TDF the year he crashed out big time thinking he looked strong enough to win it that year. Somehow though I think knowing his slightly dubious history that might not have been such a bad thing... who knows.
Very nice win by RP though... not sure he will get much chance to go for the really big ones while at SKY. The next couple of years could be good for him I hope.

Michael's won lesser events like the Tour of California.

But as far as the elite level events go (Grand Tours or Tour de Romandie equivalent), based on a casual look, if it wasn't Cadel it was Phil Anderson back in the 80s.

This win by Richie is bigger than how the press has been reporting it!
