Well tbh u need to have a banker mindset to be a domestique for Wiggins "this climb is x%, we need to pusk X watts, when we get to the next climb we need to push x watts, until it gets steeper and then we push x watts in order not to gap Wiggo"

Only Contador can make you excited for a race in Argentina.

Damn it, the wait is killing me

I think Saxo are realy going to be the team to beat this season. I cant see sky dominating as much this year as I cant see them giving Froome the same level of support as they gave to Wiggins last year. On the other hand with Kreuziger, Roche, Rogers, CAS et all I can see Saxo as being the dominant force. With Rogers they can set the tempo for Contador while Roman and Roche can provide further support, would like to see Roche get a freer role and attack if possible. Any ideas on what Saxo riders schedules will be?

Roche won't attack, if Contador feels good enough they'll just try and destroy the peloton. And then Contador goes.

Besides everyone knows that everything will be for Contador even if Roche gets the jersey with 10 minutes ahead.

if anyone else gets a free roll twill be Roman.

What i would like to see though is rather than train it up the mountains, try things like when Vino broke free on Mende in 2010 breaking the Saxo train. Or like Contador tried before Pajares when he had 4 of his domestiques try to break up the road so that he could attack into them on Pajares.

i think that roche is a better rider to attack than roman. roman might be the more gifted rider, but roche (at least to me) is the more savvy rider. regardless seems that contador will be well protected.
