A worthy winner.
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!

And great live coverage by the BBC via either the Red button or the internet.

Great race by the winner.

... a team whose owner said earlier this year that he'd reduce his salary if he could, due to underperformance. 

Oh ye of little faith!

I bet he gets more prominence on the front of this week's Cycling Weekly than Lizzie Armistead.

You gotta love 'im.  ;D

Several tools short of a full kit though. "I did not have any energy left to win a sprint - so I attacked."

The coverage sucks if you've seen a few Grand Tours recently. Same every year, I don't expect much any more. A break forms and it can be 5 minutes before we find out who the 3 riders actually are. Shouldn't this stuff be easier once a year, on a multiple loop course, for the biggest race of the year? <see rants same time last year. and the one before ... >

Still, at least we had decent commentary on the Beeb this year; no Hugh Porter, and the guy with the dreadful monotone was doing the UCI highlights videos (which are otherwise very good!)

A brilliant win and I'm glad that his "biggest win of my career" wasn't in his trade team kit.  There's one in the eye for the team owner.  :thumbsup:

Care to make a small wager? (proceeds to Chilterns Air Ambulance - or whatever it's called!)

So:
did anyone see this week's cover? How much mention of Sagan was there?

Hmm?

mattc wins that round.

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day...  ;)

It would have been absurd if Armitstead wasn't on the cover, of course.
