I'm a bit fed up about the argument that he's only won because of his TT ability. Yes, it's given him the current time advantage. But why would he seek to put time into his rivals in the mountains, when he can match them and win? And let's face it, he's not looked remotely in trouble when monitoring the others in the hills.

At the end of the day, so far and off the top of my head, he's climbed the same times as Nibali, 2 seconds less than Froome and quicker than all the other contenders. I think the lack of a yellow jersey winning a mountain stage is colouring people's opinions.

Anyway, it's also shaping to be a good Tour for Australia, insofar as Rogers and Porte will likely be supporting the winner.

The circket starts tonight, so it'll be a channel switching fiesta at chez Weekend.
