The racing has started Down Under, we have full-fan Bernie tweets, we look at no booze rules, we answer the question ‘Who’s Afraid of MvdP?’, we have some racers talkin’ big and bad about the Tour already, and much much more.
Introducing our guest VeloVoice, David Fletcher, a 15-year-old cycling journalist who has the knack for being in the right place at the right time. He’s British but lives in Galicia, Spain and runs his own blog, sprint-final. He nabbed the attention of a few riders in this year’s Vuelta and will be sharing some interviews with us. First up, the mighty Adam Hansen!
A pan flat parcours screamed sprint finish and Andre Greipel helped himself to win number three. His Lotto-Soudal train bossed the technical run in, delivering their captain first into the last corner with 300m to go. Caleb Ewan (Orica-GreenEDGE) tried to squeeze up the inside, but the Gorilla used his strength and power to keep the youngster behind him. Trek-Segafredo’s Giacomo Nizzolo finished a distant third. The GC remains unchanged, as the threat of rain led to the finish being neutralised with the time for all riders being taken on the penultimate lap.
