Congratulations Green Edge Cycling

Without a doubt, this is a great start for Green Edge, the new pro-cycling team. It is also a great overall win for Simon Gerrans, undoubtedly one of the best road cyclists in Australia.

Unfortunately, they didn't succeed in getting a stage win. They were as close as half a wheel on the 5th stage, only to have one of the best race-finishers in the world, Alexandro Valverde, gate-crashing the party.

Many others deserve a mention but I will keep it short today by only noting three more riders. Rohan Dennis for a top 5 finish (overall) and a few prizes, young Queenslander Jay McCarthy for his top 10 in the KOM and Young Rider competitions and, once again, Andre Greipel for his nearly obliterating sprint finishes.

Looking forward to tracking the peloton this year.

More results here.

I love that new Lotto kit, it is the most interesting (graphically) of the 2012 new designs I think. Green edge looks good, but is a wee bit boring in the design approach. Can you tell I work in graphic communication :P
