You don't know Ewan?

Did you do any research? biggrin.gif


Hardly any time for research. But I'm learning quickly now as he won the first stage. laugh.gif

But my Wouter Wippert came in 3rd today. cool.gif

Mark Renshaw in 2nd for Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka. biggrin.gif

sad.gif Bummer. Missed the end when it happened, and he was doing very well until then. One of those random early stage disasters. Hope he will be able to continue as I don't think he was badly injured. Ewan is the upcoming star it seems. thumbsup.gif

Today's stage should shake things up.

If it's not on too late I'll stay up and watch.

Agree. Hope he keeps it going with the ochre jersey. Need Wouter Wippert to have another good stage as well. cool.gif

I was home early today and a site had live coverage of the race in Argentina (I forget the name) with Quintana, Nibali and others.

It would probably have been interesting viewing if the coverage wasn't, quite simply, the worst coverage of a bike race I've ever seen. One camera on a helicopter, one at the finish...and a lot of random commercials and route maps. Just weird. laugh.gif

Nothing beats Phil Liggett's race coverage. Hope he never retires.

Porte wins stage 5 and trails Gerrans by only 9 seconds going into the final stage tonight. Barring another Gerrans crash, I think he has it locked up.

How did you end up, broady?

Would have been better with Ewan, right? biggrin.gif


Did you see that Nairo Quintana has a baby brother who is also a cyclist. And he's good, too!

I did pretty terrible, as though I just slapped a team together at the last minute. biggrin.gif

Yes, my team would have done much better with Ewan who obviously wasn't on my radar. Though I should have taken Diego Ulissi, who was on my radar. A lot of Aussies did well, as was to be expected, I just didn't some of the right ones.

Good luck. wink.gif
