Ag2r[edit]

Someone said they were leading the teams classification because they were the first team to have three (3) riders cross the finish line. This is not present in the citation given in the table, merely that Cycling News lists them first of the still many teams tied with the same time. Further, the teams classification in this race is a bit unique in that it is about when four (4) riders cross the finish line, not three. While the list on Cycling News is not simply alphabetical, there's still no indication that this is anything but a tie right now. If there's a further reference that specifies this, I'd like to see it. Nosleep (Talk · Contribs) 00:17, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

The results after Stage 5 for all classifications are available at the 2010 Tour Down Under official website: <http://www.tourdownunder.com.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0019/21817/STDUStage5ResultsALL.pdf>. Take a look at page 10. --luiz.bortolan (talk) 08:40, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
Right. I'm talking about before then. Every team except Omega Pharma had the same time in stage 1, and several teams were still tied through stage 4. Only after stage 5 was Ag2r the only team with the same leading time. Nosleep (Talk · Contribs) 20:36, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
