Whats interesting is Devolder changed shoes sometime during the race and still attacked. I'd like to see that hand up.

Devolder's wearing the same aero road helmet as Cancellara was wearing at MSR. It's very ugly.

Heard it was chaos at the tour of perth last night. 151 riders in a 1.1 km crit circuit. riders were pulled once a gap opened up.

hope Nick is alright. sounds like carnage out there.

Great ride from Terpstra at Dwars yesterday. OPQS just gets classics tactics.

Unsurprisingly he's getting some 'kudos' on Strava

That's a good idea! Looks cleaner than the satellite up/down shifter.

Perhaps Rodriguez or his mechanic have been reading Weight Weenies.

Why not use sprint shifters on bar-tops, with one on each side, with one side for rear upshifts and the other side for rear downshifts?

TJVG finally gets one. From the footage, you'd think this is part of the winter olympics!! This is playing out to be a very nice race.

Good show for VG...it seems like some of the US guys (TJ and TP) are finally showing results.

Interesting to see Froome not shattering things.

Sky is kinda screwed for the Giro are they not? Henao sidelined and Porte dropped out of his second race in a row. Can't imagine they will have a GC hopeful ready in time, however, he's still doing better than Cadel.
Don't take me too seriously. The only person that doesn't hate Froome.

Sky will be fine. I remember some big American team a few years back looking like crap at the Dauphine and then some Texan killing the TdF a few weeks later. Something "magical" will happen for Sky in the weeks to come.
