    Yes, still Movistar was in the same time. And now Froomie is on 4 place. I'm pretty sure not for long. Contador it is only 40 :-(

    I like this on-board camera. Give me a sense of immersion that missing on other camera views. And I like also the before and after images with riders. To see them not only running against the clock but joking, talking each other ... etc. I still hope one day I will go with a big tour for at least one week :)

    Can't wait for those camera's to become really live during a course. That is the day cycling will become much more interesting.
