Starts on Sunday - going to be interesting in that heat. Adelaide currently the hottest city on the planet.

Never really followed to TDU before, but enjoying the Sky coverage this week. Classic Cadel win yesterday.

I'd agree Andy...I enjoyed yesterday's stage, with the climb and descent over the Corkscrew. Impressed with Cuddles and it seems as if he's lost some weight this winter and looks pretty fired up already...perhaps he's peeed off with falling away to the likes of Nibali, Froome and Quintana on the mountains... he may not be in that class any more, but he could be in the mix for the bigger races this year.

Set up nicely for tomorrow with 33 sec covering the first 13.

And judging by the trailers, Sky have snapped up quite a few events this season. Value for my subscription at last :)

Spoke too soon. Saturday's TDU coverage squeezed by footie into a 30 min highlights show.
