    Howard for the win, he will surprise everyone including himself.

    I probably don’t follow the news closely enough, but I do wonder upon what basis Orica left Simon Gerrans out. Was someone going to stamp their foot, or is there a quid pro quo somewhere?

      • velocite

        Evidently!

        But thanks, I hadn’t seen that ‘Reece Homfray’ column before. Not bad for the MSM. Which is the premier cycling State, SA or Vic? TDU and track stuff or Nationals, Cadel and Herald Sun?

        • Dave

          It’s published every Wednesday.

          He won CA’s journalist of the year award in either 2014 or 2015 if I remember correctly. Fairfax should consider attempting to poach him if the quality of Rupert Guinness’ work descends any further.

          • Yep, Reece is a quality journo and a top bloke to boot. Big fan.

            • Dave

              His non-cycling articles are excellent as well, for a guy who specialises in motorsport and cycling he’s also probably the smartest football writer at The Advertiser.

        • Sean

          Vic without a doubt. The cycling culture in Vic goes far beyond the boring TDU and guys like Dave and his mate Durianrider.

            Of course, you’ve got the fattie hubbards on Beach Road as well.

    The SBS call will be Keeno and Robbie – good to see that SBS has finally gotten over their hangups about using presenters who have worked for other networks on races that SBS don’t own.

      I will miss the the dulcet tones of Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen.

      • velocite

        Is that sarcasm, maybe? Actually Phil is quite congenial company but Paul’s routine I find awfully tired and repetitive. Matt does an excellent job, and McEwen is great value too. Looking forward especially to this one.

        • Dave

          Are you sure you haven’t got Phil and Paul mixed up? I’ve found Paul to be a far more intelligent observer of racing over the years, and he does so much better at races where he doesn’t need to be kept busy correcting Phil.

          Keeno can be a bit too dry unless there’s an Aussie rider winning, then he goes so far over the top it’s embarrassing. Having a three man team with both Dave McKenzie and Robbie to balance him would be the best option there, they know enough of the Euro riders to get a bit excited even without Keeno’s green and gold pom poms.

          Matt is the best… always like hearing him call races…

  • Stian Pollestad

    GO KRISTOFF!! The “Bling” will learn who’s the real king.

  • bigdo

    should be a great one… I’m picking Sagan to win it!
