Here´s our race calendar for January


i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/SkyracecalendarJanuary.jpg

We´re going to start our season with the first Pro Tour Race in Australia after the National Championship in Down Under. It´s probably Boasson Hagen, leading our team there with some nice chances.
The second and last race of this month will be in San Luis. I think this is a very interesting stage race with a couple of pretty climbs. Sergio Henao is a great talent for this kind of race. Maybe he´s able to reach something for Sky over there just like Davide Appollonio in the sprints.

With some nice Aussies in our team, we´re already in Down Under before the first Pro Tour challenge will start for us.
Richie Porte is our man for today´s decision with Michael Rogers on his side. Sutton and Hayman are prepared for a hard race with some dangerous attacks from other teams.

First race this season and the first surprise is the weather, as the temperature isn´t that high with some cloudy parts. Our biggest problem might be the GreenEdge Team with a nice team squad. The might be too strong but we fancy with the podium at least. Cadel Evans might be another strong rider today but let´s see.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0015.jpg
As we expected, there were some Aussies, breaking away. Most famous for sure was Mark Renshaw. The small group was brought back easily after Hayman and Sutton made some pace.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0016.jpg
After Heinrich Haussler was the one with the first midstage attack. We all know how easy it can be to win the Australian Championship with such a move. Because of that our leaders took the lead of the pack. Pretty successful for the first moment but Haussler was pretty confirmed.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0017.jpg
The former German was still in front when the last 20 kilometres were reached. His advantage was getting smaller and smaller with the time.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0018.jpg
First serious attack out of the big group came by Cadel Evans. We had to counter this one, as Cadel was maybe the strongest opponent by now. Haussler was passed by him in these seconds.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0019.jpg
Richie Porte wasn´t able to stay with Evans and even Haussler was still too fast. Evans was almost without any competition in the end. He already had a nice gap of 80 seconds to Haussler.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0020.jpg
Porte tried to keep Haussler´s pace but it was way too hard as our captain wasn´t in a brilliant shape today. Still a great fight by Richie.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0021.jpg
We had no chance against the Tour Champion of 2011. Congrats to BMC and Cadel Evans, a well deserved Australian Road Champion. Is he able to get the double in two days?

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0022.jpg
Richie Porte showed an exciting sprint finish against Haussler and Lloyd, who came very fast from behind in the end. Great podium for Sky, this is a great start into the season.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0023.jpg
And also Michael Rogers crowned his great performance with a nice 5th placement after a terrific support accomplishment.

Here we go with the second decision in Australia. Cadel Evans might be the man to beat these days. The main question at the moment is, if he´s able to get the national double? With Richie Porte and Michael Rogers we´ve got two great time trialists and especially Porte is ready to keep it up today.
The GreenEdge Team is also there with some nice names, such as Jack Bobridge, Travis Meyer, Cameron Meyer and Brett Lancaster so there´s a good competition.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/teamsquad-2.jpg



Startlist

Spoiler:


i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/profile-2.jpg
38 kilometres of predominant flat terrain with some hilly parts but nothing dangerous. The biggest favourites have to wait till the first riders set their first times but the last group might be very exciting with Bobridge, Porte and Cadel Evans. Rogers should be able to give us some information about the course.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0028-1.jpg
So it is! Michael was the first one of some bigger favourites. Travis Meyer was setting the best time for a long distance. Rogers´first time was brilliant with more than 30 seconds to Meyer. He crossed the finish line as new leader with more than one minute to the second positon.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0030.jpg
Someone, who wasn´t on our mind today was Rory Sutherland. He showed some nice times but he couldn´t adventure Rogers in the end but still a great result for him.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0031.jpg
The last one by GreenEdge was Jack Bobridge. He had some good legs in the first parts of the course. His first interim time was close to Rogers´ but still some seconds behind. Finally, he failed the leading time by only 2 seconds. Rogers was still in front with only 2 riders left. So it was for sure to finish on the podium again.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0032.jpg
Cadel Evans started just in front of Richie Porte but he was the faster one in the beginning. An incredible pace was set by him, which brought the leading position at the first interim time. 18 seconds faster than Rogers! When he finally crossed the line, his advantage was even bigger with 48 seconds.

i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o520/Dougmachine92/Team%20Sky%202012/PCM0033.jpg
Richie Porte started not that fast like Evans did before. His interim time was exactly the same like his team mate Rogers set in the beginning. His second period was strong but not good enough to beat an amazing Cadel Evans. We missed that time by 17 seconds, but we´re still happy with the second and third positioning.
