Indeed. I was expecting some good things from him this season.

I hope he's ready and in shape much earlier than Vuelta, cause last year even at some 1 day events he was competitive.

Let's not forget he also criticized Riis when he left him.

Though he's probably right on the Rabo team, but that's hardly surprising. In his book Phil complained about the opposite, he felt like a schoolboy again at BMC and they forced him to do stuff like yoga on training stages which he didn't like. Now he's doing his own thing again.

It's time for Matti Breschel to put his mouth where his legs are though. His only win I can remember is Dwars door Vlaanderen. And he was supposed to be the next Cancellara/Boonen of the cobbled classics together with Haussler.

all this whining about teams riders are leaving gets tiring.
Let the legs talk and then make a statement ffs.
