Great ride by Vos to defend her title, and good work by Linda to get a hard fought 6th place. :thumbsup:

Yeah fantastic ride by Linda. Attentive at the front all day. But Vos - what a legend! :cool:

Reta gives me a little wave...

Nah... just got a Huffer Pure Black Racing t-shirt and a more subtle Bike NZ t-shirt to show where I hail from. I can be pretty loud when I choose to be though! :D

Big change in the weather today. A big thunderstorm rolled through about 6am and it's really windy. The men's race has just got underway and it will probably take them about 2.5 hours to get from the start in Lucca to the Florence/Fiesole circuits. I better jump on Il Rusto and go find a good position. I've got tickets for the Salviati climb but might watch a few laps elsewhere first.

My picks... heart says Cancellara but head says Nibali or Rodriguez.

Wildcard picks would be Vichot and Kolobnev.

Fuck me I've never been as wet as I got today unless I've been swimming. My iphone didn't survive and it's yet to be determined as to whether I have managed to kill a Canon 1DMk3. I certainly exceeded the limits of its weather tightness and it currently is not working as it should be.

Great race though. One for the real hard men. Kudos to Rui Costa for taking it out.

Yowser - hope it survives for the sake of your bank balance.

Phew... my camera seems to have recovered. I can turn it on now without it instantaneously firing off at 10 frames a second till the buffer is full! And all the back buttons are working again. Still getting an Err.02 card error message with the SD card slot but Compact Flash is working fine. Think I'll leave it to dry a bit more though!!

Great shots Tugboat, not going to see too many as good as those anywhere (even if it did cost a camera!).

Great shots, TB, and your willingness to sacrifice all things Canon for the sake of a shot earns you grande brownie points in the World of Photokarma.

I'm glad you've been having a great trip.

Glad my camera has survived as I'll need it for Lombardia next Sunday!! Quite enjoying being without a phone though. :D
