Should have stayed with Petacchi Gerry Twisted Evil
Beasley

Petacchi's intentional drift should get him relegated

Mollema took the points?

Mollema wins the sprint to take the points jersey and deliver another fp kick in the nuts.
Sagan fastest man of the Vuelta.
Bartali

Well .... an interesting Vuelta.  The pharmaceutical debate will run and run, but a good ride by Cobo nevertheless.  Chapeau.

As usual, Eurosport blow out, just as quickly as they breeze in.
If it weren't for the Tour de France, you'd think podium presentations only ever take place at races that have engines.Mad

Tdp have the best pictures....
.....Sagan has to be led away!  
Cobo and baby Cobo in matching red jerseys. Laughing
Bartali

That's 11 wins for Sagan, nearly as many as Cavendish.  Not bad for a guy who isn't supposed to be a 'proper' sprinter!

Id love to see that photo of Cobo and Junior.  Where is it?

Was watching the presentations on Sporza and they cut coverage just as Rodriguez was getting presented with KoM jersey.

Presentations were a farce - was hoping to see Froome and Wiggins on podium. Sagan was presented with his glass vase by some official, no podium girls to be seen, then he was left standing on podium, about to walk off and was dragged back on by the official and eventually 2 podium girls apeared, did the proper presentation and left him standing on podium until one of the podium girls dragged him off. Then Cobo dumped baby Cobo with one of the podium girls who promptly gave the baby to Gianetti (?). Then two "podium" girls, who looked as if they'd been dragged off the street gave Cobo another prize and that was it, no sign of 2nd and 3rd in the GC on the podium..... not well organised at all.

from wiggins face, it looks like someone made a nasty smell. and the hard stare by the statue in the background makes it pretty clear who is responsible.

Thanks for posting the pic nicedommie. First time, knowingly, that I have ever seen British riders on the podium of a GT. Mind you, Wiggins was born in Ghent and Froome in Kenya!!!!

ITV 4 had the GC podium in their highlights package.
Must say that overall, they did a pretty decent job on their first non-Tour live race.
I hope enough folks watched, so they take out that option tp cover more live races.

The last GT of the year is over.
I can see that awful black hole getting close again. Crying or Very sad

Great picture ...

Cobo looks quite skinny there whereas he look 'big' on the bike.

Not quite the long black winter yet Huw ... October sees LOMBARDY Smile  Very short odds on Gilbert I expect.  What has Cunego been up to since the TdF??

So what's Wiggin's doing standing on the step that's usually for second? In denial? Froome still deferring to his captain? Wink

I told you the presentation was a farce. Shambolic with no one seeming to know what to do or where to go. Not exactly professional on the part of the organisers.
kathy

??  The only person who didn't seem to know what to do at the presentation was Prince Felipe Laughing
