Apart from family, what could be more important than wine and bikes? Of course, there might be the odd rant about other topics on here too...

McEwan hattrick

3 stages now for Robbie McEwan who executed a perfect sprint sitting on Pettachi's wheel and coming around him with inches to spare. Great to see him win a conventional sprint and not a "twisty, turny, complicated sprint that favors great bike handlers." It also continues the great run of form of Aussies at this year's Giro. Stuart O'Grady was up there too (in fifth I think) so he seems to be coming into form and should be in great shape for the Tour. Pettachi must be boiling under the surface - although he did get the perfect lead out today, McEwan was just the stronger man.
