I watched the whole thing on the SBS stream (even though they have 4 channels at their disposal)

with about 16kms to go SBS started their coverage, i thought "awesome, i'll get to see the last 16kms on the big TV"

nope.

by the time the race had finished on the stream and they were still showing their pre-race preview etc etc etc.

absolutely ridiculous, they have 3/4 channels at their disposal, at one time they were show the same documentary on SBS HD, SBS ONE and SBS TWO when they could have been showing the race live.

great finish though, i'm glad i persevered.

I had a couple of naps, but caught the last 50km.

Interesting that Ciolek won in similar circumstances to Gerro, but wasn't portrayed as a their of the stage !

Anyway, congrats to all that finished :P

Ciolek played 'em like cheap fiddles!

Good on him, wild card and all ... let those millionaires do all the work. :-)

Note that he wasn't on anyone's wheel in that final stretch ... he put in the big ones to finish!

He is a established sprinter/lead out man as Sagan is still young and doesn't have a good kick
