Went to live racing at 12-45pm.
So far, no live links to any feeds.
I'm watching it on tv. :)

Looks like another avoid result and watch later. If they say the result on eurosport during Paris-Nice they'll be getting an angry letter from me.

Another WOTA Race.
Blei Kadri holds off all and sundry.
Looked for all the world as if they'd catch him.

Big red face for Filippo POSEzatto who celebrated his second place "win".
Really embarrassed interview. Commentators having a right old snigger.:oops:

Excellent. I have a feeling AG2R are going to have a pretty decent year.

Brilliant by Kadri and LMAO at Pozatto :lol:

I have to admit that is a new race to me (I know it's a new name), I don't know how I've missed it before as it's a fantastic route. I can't imagine a better finish area for a race - I do love Rome :D

They were going so fast in that last 10km. Looked like downhill all the way in.

No ear pieces.


So there are benefits of not having radios then.

It's definitely noticeable in the flemish races. Teammates not sure whether to ride or not. Usually ends up with van Avermaert riding when he shouldn't be.

OK, well I meant that the benefit was in making Pozzato look silly. But I do wonder how much the lack of radios changed the outcome. Pozzato didn't seem to be the only one who thought he'd won.

Would be good to know how many in the group thought they were sprinting to win. Several riders got the jersey on TV congratulating Pozzato. They all assumed Nibali's group had brought back Kadri? There were no cars/bikes with info? Outstanding :D

Nibbles tweet to Pippo:

Yeah, I was actually expecting this to happen as I didn't see info on the road at all. Even the commentators pointed it out at some point, as the pace really seemed as if it was for Nibali's group only. Grega Bole (who placed third) even hit his handlebars in frustration (for thinking he got second).
