Tuft Train!

Tomorrow starts a week of world championship road race action.

It's an early wakeup call for me (5PDT) to watch the Men's Elite TTT and a good reason to. Svein Tuft is on the Orica-Greenedge TT team and to ride the individual TT on Wednesday. Canada has 3 spots on the world team, joining Tuft will be his old buddy Christian Meier and Francois Parisien - who both will ride the road race.

I believe Orica will be the team that will fight it out with Omega Pharma for the top prize. I remember Tuft's great silver in 2008 and his 2012 bronze - I believe he will deliver the 'goods' in Firenze!

Orica Greenedge squadra: Svein Tuft, Daryl Impey, Brett Lancaster, Luke Durbridge, Jens Mouris & Michael Hepburn.
