2 in a row for the big O.
Orica Greenedge has arguably been the story of Le Tour so far this year. From an inauspicious start when their lead out bus got stuck at the finish line on Corsica in stage 1, to Gerrans pipping Peter Sagan at the line in stage 3, to a fantastic effort to take the win and le maillot jaune in todays exciting TTT in Nice - they have had their fingerprints all over this race.
With no real GC contender on their roster and no high mountain stages until stage 8 to Ax 3 Domaines this Saturday, I would see no reason why they shouldn't be able to protect it...and the teams with GC contenders will be happy to let them do all the work. Sunny days for Australian cycling... with their first maillot jaune since Cuddles wore it last in 2011 - good on ya boys.
