Good luck Adam !

If every rider on the pro tour would be as eloquent and open-mindes as Linus, Cancellara or you, I would be certain that pro cycling will solve its problems fast ! :oops:

I just checked the official site (below) and it seems Adam is doing quite well in 93rd place in the overall standings after Sundays(9th) stage ahead of some well known riders. For a young rider in his first grand tour this is a very good performance. Of course there is a lot of riding left.

He finished last :oops: He had 2 punctures and there were no wheels left on the neutral service car. So he had to wait and eventually risk to be disqualified, but it was okay.

Adam rode well last night to finish the stage in 17th and moved up to 100th over all on GC.
