I thought you described 2010 as a great year for RSC races?

I did. Was a great TA and a great Giro (lombardia sucked though)
Didnt remember that Boonen won a stage that year though. And how many years you say he did TA. 5 you say? and how many stages did he win?

Anyway I dont remember who wins every stage of every race. For example I dont remember who won every stage of Paris nice that year either (though i do remember Sagan cos he won 2- you dont forget something like that)

You were the one complaining about lack of variation in his schedule, not me. Just pointing out he did Tirreno-Adriatico instead of Paris-Nice for a long long time. Then you say you don't remember him as if he did nothing there. Well, he won a stage. Ain't that good enough for you?

I actually also remember most of Boonen's stage wins in Paris-Nice because some were pretty epic.

But the Slovak sees himself as the strongest on the team. And when asked who his rivals are replies " I have many rivals, but i crush them all" (or words to that extent)

Good to see them giving Henao leadership, he deserves it.

I've just read Wiggo confirmed his participation in TA.
I'm looking forward to it. He and Contador are riding races to win. Should be entertaining duel.
Giro - Tour double attempt almost certain too. I'm looking forward to it as well.
