    van den Broek’s highest ranking performance was on that UCI list of doping suspicions. it’s amusing to hear ‘the trust is lost with Lotto’ – this is a team that tried to give him a push to succeed Cadel as team leader at one point. where was he going to get a better deal than that? obviously, as history very clearly shows, he didn’t deserve that and couldn’t make the most of it. good luck mate.

      He’s never quite reached the top level but has been reasonably solid I guess.

      I wish to highlight something I saw this morning on the drive to work – a small group of cyclists who ran a blatant red, light turning left from Heidelberg rd onto the Chandler Hwy Fairfield heading down towards the bridge circa 6.40am – please follow the road rules in future. Firstly you turned not far in front of car traffic that was heading straight for you i.e.not smart, but also your actions will continue to allow haters to hate cyclists as a whole. Please use your brain for a second and think about the bigger picture rather than just trying to keep up with your mates who obviously dropped you.

    A very informative article on the Kreuziger saga. Doesn’t paint him in a good light:

    Tough luck for Matthias Brändle.

    Maybe he should speak with Aru and find out how the Italian recovered so quickly from his bout of gastro.

      There you go with that sarcasm again — ha I caught you this time!

      • Michele

        Yep, totally tongue-in-cheek ;)

    Tinkoff’s the only guy who can make camo loud. Even when he sprayed his hair pink to blend in with the pink-clad Giro crowd he somehow managed to stand out.

    The short film about Khardung La was beautifully shot and edited – what an inspiration! Thanks for sharing.

    Mmmm, Förstemann. Much lean. Many thigh. Wow!

    Seriously, he is one of the nicest blokes on the track. I was volunteering at the track worlds a few years ago and had to take a huge stack of results papers up to the commentary box, and he stopped a bunch of reporters who were about to interview him and made them move to the side so I could get past. Later he came up and said ‘you are all doing a great job. thank you’.

      A bloke I know was a volunteer at the athletics for London 2012, he was quite impressed when Usain Bolt told a reporter to stop her interview for a couple of minutes while another nation’s anthem was played during an event presentation.

      It’s always surprising what you learn about elite athletes when the ‘game face’ is off. When he’s not hurling grenades at the poms, Mitchell Johnson is an absolutely top bloke who always stops to chat to kids and asks their name to address autographs.
