I've been watching this event, over the years, never really paying attention to how points are scored.

Although it's a little clearer to me, now, I'm still more interested in the (often) incredible scenery and the history behind just about every landmark the riders pass.

Australia's only ever winner was Cadel Evans, in 2011. Seems we have a good chance in this one, with Tasmania's Richie Porte. He's in the same team as Evans was - BMC. After the first week, he's 5th. and according to the comms, in with a real chance to win.

I backed him @ 6/1. Smile

You can watch the tour on SBS 1. Starts at 8.30 AEST.

Porte has crashed, out of the tour. Sad
