Noval, hernandez, morkov and Paulinho is my guess

A pretty strong team for the tt

and here are some more s s's and some more ' ' 's. Put them where they are needed.
I can't see anything other than tempo up the Alpe first time up Maybe a bit of softening up with team mates flying up the road. The 2nd time up will see the fireworks

Balls out attack down off the Sarenne, Abandony left floundering.....

Attacks will start on the Paliheres to soften things up Ax3 not much of a finish but nice all the same don't see big margins. Ventoux will be immense if someone goes early, get CAS in the break! Semnoz might be brilliant but it'll probably be over by then

To me it will remain a case of being victimized
CAS can (and did) consider a case of first impression, so they weighed the facts of the case and not simply whether there was procedural/substantive errors made by RFEC during the initial proceeding. Quirky, yes, but those are the rules of this particular road.

Do all of the riders have the red/pink and yellow bands on their jersey or is it just Contador. I actually think it is a good idea that Grand Tour winners can have something to identify them as former winners on their Jerseys. Roche will have the Irish Tricolour on his sleeves also i assume?

Since everyone has the bands I think it really is about saxo/csc winning all 3 gts and not Alberto.
