surely!
at the Irish Pub in Girona soon :)

seeing Martin distance Purito before the final turn was one of the best cycling moments I saw!
I was scared he would lose the sprint!
great!

Amazing ride for Ryder, Martin and Garmin. I can't believe the effort Ryder put in to bring Martin to the line.

For an example of good bike fit (Sitsou) vs terrible bike fit (Rolland), please see stage 2 of Giro Del Trentino.

Sitsou is rock solid in the saddle, good leg extension, light bend in the elbows and doesn't move around much in any way. Rolland is sitting on the very tip of the saddle, knees are wobbling in and out during the pedal stroke, his hips buck forward on each stroke, his leg comes up pretty high, his hips are fairly closed, and he appears to be reaching pretty low for his bars. I know certain pros like sub-par fits for whatever reason, but he looks completely awful and its not like it helps him get any sort of result.

Without Ryder, that group never stays away to the finish allowing the springboard for Martin to win. His clawing back of Purito was about as ugly and gritty as his teeth ;-)

Chapeau, Martin! Been knocking at the door for a while and I'm really happy to see a rider win LBL who name I'd bet we'll never have to put a * next to.

I've watched it again just now. Great! Those last 6 kms where incredible!
