    Great to see Dan Martin take this final step between threatening something big and actually doing it, he certainly looks to have progressed well.
    Great result for Ireland and Birmingham(?) !
    Well he's half and half so we can still claim him for Britain too.

    Strictly speaking he races under an Irish licence. Therefore, you can't claim him for Britain :laugh:

    Does he have an Irish accent as a matter of interest?

    His dad put up 2 pics on Facebook, one of a shot of the podium from his TV with "someone pinch me" and another of a cigar with "sorry Purito, not this time - again" :laugh:

    I can't recall hearing him speak. I'd imagine he does

    EDIT: I might lose this argument. He became "Irish" in 2004 through his mother (Roche)

    Anyway - Licence says IRL. He's one of us :laugh:

    We can claim anyone we care to make a case for !!!!

    Greg Rusedski
    Zola Budd
    Chris Froome

    By the way, I did say "too"

    But that doesn't apply to any Belgians or Aussies who want to make a case for Wiggo

    Fantastic finish by Dan Martin, chapeau to him, and of course a great push from Hesjedal forced the group and set up the Irishman nicely, brilliant team racing from Garmin-Sharp. Emphatic win.

    What passport does he have ? Accent may not tell too much. I have a Canadian passport but a highland accent myself.
