    Highlight of the race for me was Tom spitting his dummy out !

    Exactly. It's easy to point the finger when people feel behaviour of any sport star falls below what they think is acceptable, but you can certainly empathise with him.

    Tom Boonen never wore gloves when riding the cobbles. Proper 'ard.

    Bling is out of the Strade Bianche. Apparently he crashed and busted his shoulder at the Omloop - tbh, I didn't even realise he was in the race. Also looking unlikely to figure in the Tirreno-Adriatico next week.
