Born in Inverell, NSW but raised on a diet of German cycling from age 14, Heinrich Haussler is clearly representing Germany these days, but… it’s still nice to see him beat Boonen and Co at the Dauphine Libere. I’ve nothing against German-Australians, after all. Boonen was 2nd, Brown 3rd. Hushovd had excuses based on Boonen’s lack of punch – but Boonen was still ahead at the finish. Wiggins leads Leipheimer overall.
Meanwhile Olivia Gollan is doing well overall in the Tour de Prince Edward Island, Canada.
