Well that was a nice change of pace....the race was actually mildly exciting this year!

Sure, the sprint stages (i.e. most stages) are mind-numbingly boring (especially having to listen to Uncle Phil babble on!), but the two hilltop finishes were exciting and the last day's breakaway almost overturned the apple cart completely.

When they still had over 2' w/ ~7km to go, I thought there was no chance they were going to bring it back.....

Good start to the season!
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Watched a couple stages live post-dinner (very civilized compared to usual 6am rise needed to watch Euro cycling). I invested in ExpressVPN, mostly because I don't like to listen to Phil babble and prefer Sporza coverage which is georestricted.

In this case Sporza didn't carry coverage (probably because of time difference) so I pretended to be in Melbourne and got an Aussie HD stream on my big screen TV with Robby and Jens arguing about whether catch was going to be made in that last stage. Robby >> Jens.

The only thing I need to figure out his how to "sideload" Chrome browser on my Sony Android TV because the VEWD browser is fairly hopeless. Other than that we have a winning setup.

Aussie commercials are funny but there's still too many of them.
