ok, Le Tour de L'europe then?

 

Anyway, I went to the start and finish yesterday, what a great fkn spectacle.... and what a ride from Robbie the rocket!

 

With just under an hour to go he has to dismount and loses around 60 places, then storms through at the last to take it on the line.

 

Today should be fun as it's pretty much on the flat!

We're underway in stage two!! There are 188 riders left in the race. The only rider to crash out yesterday was Eduardo Gonzalo Ramirez of the Agritubel team. He suffered a collarbone injury after going into the back windscreen of the Caisse d'Epargne team car early on in yesterday's stage

An overcast start to the start of the stage today. Some rain fell earlier, but the roads have dried now. Temperatures are not expected to rise any higher than an agreeable 15 degrees. Nothing like the heat of yesterday in Kent.

No sooner have we entered Belgium, than the first attack of the day has come! Ruben Perez (Euskaltel), Cedric Herve (Agritubel) and Marcel Sieberg (Milram) have broken away and opened up a 20 second lead on the peloton. It was Sieberg who made the move.

128km - Of the three escapees, Euskaltel's Ruben Perez is the man best-placed in the general classification, 48 seconds behind Cancellara, in 53rd place. He is now in the virtual yellow jersey. Sieberg (Milram) is 131st, 1'05" back, while Hervé is 187th, 4'15" back.

118km - Robbie McEwen's triumph yesterday was made all the more remarkable by the fact he injured his wrist in a fall just over 20 kilometres from the finish. "We treated his wrist problem just as a knock so he's cleared to start. Then we'll see how it goes," said his osteopath.
