Tour of Alberta Prologue (spoilers)

Peter Sagan does it again, winning the T/A prologue.

Quote:
won with a time of 8:28.01, beating 2nd place Rohan Dennis by an incredible 13.63 seconds. Sagan came into this race as one of the clear favorites to win as he already has 19 pro victories this year.
And it wasn't a race-ending sprint! What else will this gent accomplish?

You mean people outside of Canada have heard of this? Awesome!

I was there; it was a real treat seeing some of the pros. Of course, Hesjedal was the fan favourite, even though he only came in 10th.

A few blurry pics can be viewed here.

Tour Tracker Alberts is supposedly available on app to watch it, but I still hasn't downloaded. I'd hoped to view it on a larger monitor...darn mobil crap has subsumed everything. The powers that be assume everyone wants to see videos on the teeny-tiny phone screens while at work, driving or sitting on a park bench.

You should be able to get a fullscreen from here I believe. I work the 2nd shift and have to miss them.

With one circuit to go..."Ryder Hesjedal (GRS) attacked right before the line and threw up his hands thinking he'd won the race."

Oops.

Unfortunately Cox doesn't show universal sports. Money, money, money.

I was thinking you meant "full screen" on the PC. I don't even have cable. I get 4 International News stations on my PC "Livestation" for about $5 per month and watch Showtime Boxing at a friends house.....We don't need no stinking cable.

Looks like Sagan defends so far.....And I don't get to watch from work.
