Nationals

ahh, the nationals.

big questions:
- will sergey lagutin win his 336th uzbek championship
- who will draw the straw from astana for the kazakh?
- what team will have the most jerseys depriving their co-sponsors of that advertising space they paid for?

lieuwe westra took the dutch tt championship by 4 seconds from niki terpstra and 40 back to tome dumoulin.

big news, fabian cancellara won a time trial. this is his first of the season.

Just finished watching Rai Tre's coverage.
Phew! For a long time there, up that final climb, it looked for all the world as if old man Tin Tin would suck Scarponi's wheel all the way to the Tircolore jersey.

Amazing ride by Stortoni, who towed the front 5 around the course for km after km.

Of course, Lampre had all their eggs in the basket of the guy who can't sprint to save his life.
Ulissi was left marking, in the 2nd group on the road.

Wish I was at the GB Nationals in Glasgow.

Cav wins the UK title. Sprint finish from Stannard and Millar. Apparently he attacked uphill on the last lap. Luckily he had a "Plan B" when that attack didn't stick!

Looks like Arthur Vichot won the French jersey, Thibaut's buddy.

I think I recall he was the guy who a few years ago got chosen for a very successful Facebook campaign with many banners and so forth throughout the Tour Down Under.  At the time he was a young rider, who had won nothing, and was more or less picked as a bit of a joke.  Now he is a champ.

Did I dream that?

Most of them have advertising for sponsor even if the National Jersey.  Omega will be on Cav's for sure.

Even worse, this year you will recall the FDJ team did NOT advertise on the French champions jersey.  In the same way, and with the same sense of minor rebellion that has the French Rugby jersey unadorned by a big sponsor (still has the jersey manufacturer and the FFC advertising).  All the other Rugby jerseys are commercially adorned, non?

And so will FDJ do the same thing with Vichot this year?  Is there any other national jersey that is unadorned with commercial advertising?  Vive la France!

Just a reminder that the UK Nationals are on ITV 4 tonight 7pm-8pm UK local time (BST).

of course, the big sponsors don't miss out. it's the smaller ones i am thinking of.

what with androni giocatlsofeiofdjkjfdnjrfdif having 337 shirt sponsors, some of them would have to miss out if they won a national champiosnhip Very Happy
