Good luck for Lotto in Austria

Bjorn Leukemans has given the Predictor-Lotto team a big win in the Tour of Austria. This was the queen stage - ie the one all of the climbers wanted to bag - so it's really quite special. (Makes me wonder why he's not supporting Cadel Evans at Le Tour, but I'm sure Horner will do the job even better - we hope.) Matt Lloyd clearly gave great support to Leukemans (or so I assume from the placings!) and on GC is both highest-placed Aussie and best of the Lotto riders. Should be inspirational for the team slogging away in France right now.

Drapac Porsche appears to have found - not unsurprisingly in this company - the going a bit tough, with 3 of them now lining up for the Lanterne Rouge.
