That's weird, I was sure I read somewhere that Wiggins would do T-A to prepare for the Giro. Surely, they're not sending Froome and Wiggins to the same race again?

Thats because Contador will show Wiggo up and highlight what a bore Wiggo is.

I would prefer to see a Wiggins vs Contador battle here since they should be both in decent shape. I would rather keep Froome and Velasco apart until July in order to keep the suspense

Cronulla Criterium:

1. Michael Matthews
2. Aaron Gate
3. Jens Mouris

The three sprinted for victory after they went away from the bunch in an early breakaway.

This is for Zam and Libertine who often remind us that women race too. The latest edition of Australia's premier cycling magazine has one of their favourite riders on the cover - remarkable for the fact that the rider is a female (and not an Australian one at that). I'm not 100% sure (will have to check back issues), but I think this is the first time a female has been on the cover. Congrats to Ride magazine.

That last part is true but he might need to take some time to adjust/ get teammates to support him.
In races like the classics Valverde, Gilbert and others will beat him, whilst at the Giro riders like JROD (if he can ride now) would beat him on those stages.

you can become top ten wt without winning any monument and betancurt doesn't need a team. I have yet to see a rider other than sagan who can place himself and read a race as well as he does.
