    Looks like Sam is doing well for himself, has he just got a Lamborghini Aventador?

    You mean that thing on the back is not a specially designed Saris variant?

    Sam has won Stage 1 of the Tour de Slovénie (2.1).
    He beat Colbrelli, Mezgec, Ferrari and some old bloke called Cavendish.
    Highlights on Eurosport2 at 11.30pm tonight.
    "I must admit that today I didn’t expect stage victory. I'm still feeling tired from Giro and I'm surprised over this amazing result. After the crash in that last corner positions changed somewhat and I saw my opportunity for a victory and I took it. Thanks to my team I did it!"

    Sam gets to wear the green leader's jersey during Stage 2, which is also expected to finish in a bunch sprint.

    Yeah hopefully he'll make the Vuelta squad, although looking at the stage profiles, only about 4 will end in a big bunch sprint. So there won't be many opportunities for Sam.

    Sam is doing some job for the Country's Ranking re a bigger Worlds Team. Higher than usual at this stage thanks to his results.

    I think he said after the Giro that he wasnt doing the Tour to be ready for Spain. Can't find the interview now.

    Given his results how would he rank between him, dan and Nico?

    Would it be Dan, Sam, Nico based on results?

    Sh1t camera work right at the end of the race. Disgraceful. What's the Slovenian equivalent of the Indo so I can write a letter of dismay.

    Interesting reading the Individual rankings. Didn't expect to see Dan so high up. To pick one other, surprising to see Diego Ulissi 15th - 2 ahead of Kwiatkowski.

    Ulissi is ranked so high because he picked up a bucket load of UCI points for finishing 5th in the Tour Down Under GC and winning the 1.1 ranked G.P. Costa degli Etruschi one-day race (against a bunch of amateurs... okay slight exaggeration but opposition was weak).

    How much bike would Sam or the other WT guys sit on ? I'm sure my car is worth less :D

    In this case its more about the replacement frame/lack of bike. He is getting a lot of offers for lends on twitter.

    Don't think Sam was ever at risk of not having a bike ;)

    Just saw Sam's Giro nemesis Gaviria is recovering from surgery and won't be riding the Vuelta. Anyone know if Sam plans on doing it?

    Sagan supposedly concentrating on Worlds now and is not planning to do Vuelta.

    Think he may have been a few years ago when he was close to jacking it all in;);)
