OPINION

Greg Henderson - an apology

It had to happen didn't it? 

After all the stick I have given poor Greg Henderson, he had to produce a sprint finish to win yesterdays Paris-Nice stage.

I have been quick to knock 'Hendo' (as he is possibly known to his friends; so not me then!!) for his inability to fulfil the role of team leader in the 2010 Tour of Britain, surrendering to Michael Albasini.

I also managed to shoe horn a bit of criticism into the recent interview with Matt Rendell.

Now I have to hold my hands up and say I was wrong.

It takes a top class sprinter to win a stage of the 'race to the sun'. You don't just get them given.

So well done Greg, am happy to clarify I was wrong.

(PS Thomas De Gendt is doing ok... he was my long term tip for the 2012 Ronde regular readers will remember)

I took it whilst I was still critical of his work...

Good job too. He doesn't half look cross with you in that picture.
