My bad. I didn't read the whole interview as i was only interested in the schedule, but the bit at the top caught my eye where they asked how.long he.went without doing anything and he saysnot even a week and talks about doing skiing because its similar to cycling, i thought he was boasting about how much training he was doing even after lombardy. But i see now that in another paragraph he says the opposite and that he was spending time with kids etc

So what is your point? Getting worried that no one has been talking about Gilbert so once again trying to hijack discussions and make them about him?

How does that work? Purito lost 59 seconds in the tt but kept the jersey by 1 second. 32 of the 60 seconds he had on contador prior to tt came.from.bonuses.

Where do you propose a rider who relied on bonus seconds for over half his advantage would have found 32 seconds from?

Let me guess he would have attacked from the bottom.of the climb on la galina and had a minute by the top lol.

Oh and here's another fun fact. Without bonus seconds.rodriguez would never even have held the leaders jersey at the giro. With them.he still lost it.

Lol, you do realize I have adressed both points in my post already?

Phil also rode Romandie after the Ardennes. So yeah, it's a very similar season. If you think Rodriguez will ride for GC in the Vuelta after a season like that you'll be disappointed anyway. But considering you also believed he didn't stop training maybe you do believe it.

Probably a new Portuguese hope. I bet IznoGoud or Parrulo would know more about him.

With or without KAT, Purito's program has been mapped out.

"Tour de San Luis (20-27 enero), Tour de Omán (11-16 febrero), Tirreno-Adriático (6-12 marzo), Volta a Catalunya (18-24 marzo), Amstel Gold Race (14 abril), Flecha Valona (17 abril), Lieja (21 abril), Tour de Romand*a (23-28 abril) y Tour de Suiza (8-16 junio) son las nueve carreras que tiene previsto disputar Joaquim Rodr*guez hasta su gran objetivo del Tour de Francia (29 junio-21 julio)."

http://www.biciciclismo.com/cas/site...a.asp?id=58260

IMO he already has a team which has accepted his demands. À qui la chance?

J-Rod is determined to add a stage race win to his palmares in '13. No question about it.

wow- is quite a busy schedule- good for him which leads me to believe he has to have a team already (perhaps KATUSHA have already made arraignments with the race organizers to secure a spot.)
