Goss the bridesmaid again. 2nd in the sprint at Tour of Switzerland. Becoming a habit. He needs to find a way to string some wins together.

Stuart O'Grady announces his retirement. All going well, he's planning to hang up the bike after the 2014 TdF.

I've got an answer to my own question (Why do Dauphine stages end earlier in the day to TDF stages? In July I'm sitting up to 1am but this week it's all over by 10.30pm?).

It's because of TV broadcast times in France and needing to accommodate the tennis at Roland Garras that is being played concurrently. Bummer, because earlier TdF stages would be nice.

Not sure I believe one, but - according to Robert Millar - Sky's secret plan for the TdF is Porte:

Tactics may well be deployed in the race for yellow. The thinking goes that Froome and Contador will be watching each other that closely that Richie Porte could sneak off up the road and gain enough advantage to withstand any attacks from either of the two named leaders.

I saw it over the weekend too. The other tweets CT posted were pretty unified about how they felt about Di Luca.

Nibali's always been an ok time trialer. He usually isn't as good as Wiggins, but he only lost 2 minutes to him in the final TT at the Tour last year, and has done well in shorter TTs previously too. Eg, he lost only 20 seconds to Cancellara in the TT at the 2012  Tirreno-Adriatico. 

Back to Di Luca, I had to laugh when I saw this (via Cyclingtips)

Yep, but when great climbers start winning TT's... just sayin' :)

He's always been a good descender
