    Bloody Webbo. Starts on the front row, 1st corner fourth, 4th corner last place. :rolleyes: At least he then stormed back through the field in the rain.
    I can't listen to Phil and Paul explain all the rules to the noobs again tonight.

    More like a bulldog after its eaten a bowl of porridge, but with the end of a cocktail frankfurter sticking out of its mouth at the same time.

    Did anyone stay up and watch the end of the Wimbledon Final?

    I crashed/flaked out in the rain delay in the third set (at 9:00am here.:eek: ) ... it seems like it was one of the best matches ever, judging by the score, 9-7 in the fifth.

    I was thinking the same thing last night.
    I could understand one of the wildcard teams going for publicity, but why send Moreau?

    Got to say I was a bit pissed that having to listen to those nobs on SBS sprog in their teacups every time Thor won in previous years that Dean was the best leadout man in the universe, but when the boy from Bathurst does good and does his job and doesn't ride Thor into the fence he doesn't even get a mention. :mad:

    You could see a Credit Agricole rider peeling off when Thor shot through for the win, but no mention of who it was. Renshaw seems to have stepped into the lead out role pretty well. There an article on cyclingnews about him.

    Interesting that FdJ were doing all the chasing for a while there. No French team seems to like another French team to win a stage.

    Lots of new gear on show last night as well. Sram Red on the Agritubel bikes, FdJ had the new Dura Ace on board as did Thor. And Voeckler was riding the new Super Record, although as soon as Sherwin mentioned it he had to stop for a bike swap. Maybe he had to go back to plain Record for some reason :D

    It's just so shriekingly awful. Which cretin thought colouring up the bars and stem like that was a good idea?

    badsac, I did a study on Julian Dean from the 2005 Giro onwards, in all bunch finishes in GT's.

    He crashed on 50% of the stages.

    He has crashed twice so far in both finishes, batting 100. Fucking Kiwis.
