    Edit: Craig did you catch the mountain finish in the Herald Sun tour? Would like to know your thoughts on the jobs done by Lowe and Lloyd on the final climb. Both looked very good to me

    He will probably have Axel Merckx, Serhiy Honchar, Patrik Sinkewitz, Michael Barry (good for the lower slopes and is another Discovey man defecting across) and Guiseppe Guerini, while the up and coming Linus Gerdemann could get drafted in. So that is possibily 6 members right there, from there it will be fight out between Eisel, Kirchen, Schrek and Bernucci for the last two or three spots. I think that will be their Tour squad right there.

    Unfortunatly not as the highlights were on too late for me

    But as far as I read he has done a great job and I can't wait to see him ride in the ProTour, the two mentioned plus Matthew Goss (wore the leader's yellow jersey in the Tour of Britian) seem to be Australia's best young prospects, especially with the teams they will ride for '07 suggests they have something going their way.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    He was really unlucky not to win that tbh. Must be so annoying whilst leading a race to have to pull out because your body has said no.

    Or Robbie McEwen's new uniform for his team. No more Davitimon-Lotto, instead it will be Predictor-Lotto with "salmon pink" as the colours.

    At least he is getting paid well enough to wear it.

    A 'positive' on lotto could mean something totally different

    'The main color will be the salmon pink tint that is used for the packaging of the best known product in the Predictor range, the pregnancy test kit," according to the team's website.'

    Hahahaha

    Looks like a ridiculous climb though tbf. If even the top cyclists in the world struggle to get up it then it must be a beast.

    22% gradient is the steepest part of the climb. In fact it used to be a ploy of teams in the 70's and 80's for team leaders who were in achance of winning the race and with their rivals behind them they would send their team-mates behind him up it so over-geared for it so they would go so slow and fall off and thus blocking the path of the other riders behind them. It is akin to asking somebody to take a dive or if you are a Australian football supporter then Fabio Grosso's dive in the match against Australia in the World Cup

    Plus it's cobbled.

    Something i read said that only 7 riders (including Tom Boonen) made it up without walking last time, which shows how insane it is.

    It was Boonen who attacked on it

    If you can climb that then you can climb anything.
