It's a miracle, I can post.

I set an alarm to wake up and watch Milan-San Remo. I'm glad I was rewarded. Fantastic attack and win by Nibali.

The problems probably have something to do with the new layout? I cannot change from old to new at least..

What an awesome win, I was on the edge of my seat that whole run to the finish.

I can post again, hallelujah! :D

And that win by Nibali was something special indeed.

He is simply awesome to watch, especially in the classics. Always attacking, always taking a chance.

He's not going to win any other way so may as well give it a go.

Wonder if anyone at Michelton-Scott wondered what might have been if Trentin was pulling to close it down for Ewan rather than taking a solo flyer....I know, hindsight being 20/20 and all but it's the first tjing I thought of.

He will get a lot more than that
We’ll see. San Remo this year won’t be one of Pinchy’s “lot more.” Well done Vinnie! What a great attack and worthy champion.

Was discussing this today. I think having 2 leaders allowed him to have a go, but might have cost them the race.

I understand that it was Nibali attacking, and 290km or so into the race, but kind of amazed how little Sky and then the rest of the field did to try to close him down.

As an example: Daniel Oss was on the front at some points on the descent and the flat trying to peg Nibali back. I love Oss, but, if he’s anywhere near the front after the field reacts (or... doesn’t) to Nibali, they aren’t chasing that hard.

Can Cav get anymore unlucky, it is sad to see him crash race after race. It makes you wonder if he is suffering some sort of concussion like issue after repeated crashing.

I think the medical condition Cav’s suffering from is “Jackass.” Apparently he’s had it his whole life.

Bellissimo! Bellissimo! it was clear to hear from his team as he came to a halt after the line.. I must agree, that was a super last 5km from Nibbles and his team, who hammered the pace at the front and when he went just blocked the road for long enough for him to get away..
A classy and exciting ride from the sicilian, chapeau!

The question is will Sagan get 'free' for a win this classics season?
Or will he be too marked or too leaned upon.. I think for races of attrition like Flanders and E3 he'll be okay but are there any other races he can 'free' himself from a pack who's job is to sit on Sagan's wheel?
