    T de San Luis - Ettix win the opening TTT with Richeze in yellow ( or whatever colour the leader wears!)

    Tropicale Amisso Bongo underway as well - I had planned on having it in the Pro Pundit game but coverage is poor

    Etixx add to their wins with Cav-replacement, Fernando Gaviria, taking out the sprint on Stage 2 of San Luis, over the predictably 2nd-placed, Sagan, and 3rd was Elia Viviani, who in this race is not riding for Sky but for the Italian national squad.

    I am looking forward to Caleb Ewan and Gaviria clashing at some point this season... :smile:

    Big pile-up at San Luis with some tweets suggesting that Nairo Quintana has broken his collar bone,

    edit - tweets now saying he completed the stage and no bones broken.

    further edit - Movistar have tweeted that no break for Quintana.

    This is almost as exciting as an episode of Casualty.

    Only if I get to provide comfort to the magnificent Marcel if he ever falls over.

    With the use of government minister endorsed poppers it wouldn't even hurt.

    Adrien Petit wins La Tropicale and for some reason does a Tommy Cooper impression "just like that, I thank-you"

    Great to see Nairo Quintana's younger brother, Dayer, winning the Tour de San Luis.

    Malori is still not looking good though - apparently now being treated for brain injuries in a specialist clinic in Buenos Aires.

    And Greipel wins the third 'stage' of the Mallorca challenge.
    He's started the season pretty hot.
