1ª etapa París-Niza: Larsson gana la CRI (Top 10)

Etapa 1:
1. Gustav Larsson (Vacansoleil) 11:19
2. Bradley Wiggins (Sky) a 1
3. Levi Leipheimer (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) a 4
4. Tejay Van Garderen (BMC) a 9
5. Thomas De Gendt (Vacansoleil) a 12
6. Sylvain Chavanel (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) m.t.
7. Rein Taaramae (Cofidis) a 13
8. Markel Irizar (RadioShack) m.t.
9. Remi Pauriol (Cofidis) a 15
10. Jerome Coppel (Saur Sojasun) m.t.

Great ride by Wiggins. Got him, De Gendt and Pauriol in top 10. Thought about Irizar and Larsson but went for Porte and Phinney. Think the rain affected things quite a lot. Martin 29th! But that's cycling for you!

96 points I think. So-so. Anyone with Larsson is going to be near the top.

it's official in my humble opinion, Boonen and Hushovd have now matured into excellent ARs, there are a couple of stages in this race, that suit breakaways, for medium mountain hard men, and Hushovd could figure especially, depending on team orders. Just my opinion, which is probably worth sod all considering my form at the minute.

Well that was OK I guess, got 1st, 3rd, 13th, 16th, 18th but to think that at some stage in the last few days I changed out van Garderen, Taaramae, and Coppel, could have been great... Plain Face

Also I've STILL managed to pick the stage 1 winner in every event so far, I was sure Martin was going to nail it. Surprise
