Day 1 – prologue.
Only two winners I had considered for today, Cancellara and Martin. I fancied Martin for the win because we share the same name, and if we combined we’d be Martin Martin and that would confuse a lot of people.
ITV is my preferred coverage provider again this year. Phil gets the edge over Dave Harmon for his excitability factor, Paul is just easier to understand than Kelly. Add in Ned’s little sound bites and Gary’s little sarcastic quips and it’s great TV.
Per race interviews- highlight was Cadel calling himself the favourite, in that odd little squeaky wobble voice.
Winner – yep, old Spartacus. Great ride. Shame for Martin and his bike change.
Real winner – Wiggo. Time into squeaky already, great psychological marker after just 6.4km.
