Still swimming burns fat and it's good training for the entire body, a very good work-out for the off-season. The swimming coach might have recommended it.

It's still better than the amount of votes Wiggins is getting.

Gesink. For what it's worth. I am sadly no longer convinced that Nibali's got what it takes (although I'd be delighted for him to prove me wrong) and I'm not sure that Wiggins will reproduce last year's form or have the same appetite.

Sanchez will liven things up and I'm looking forward to watching him, but I don't see him on the podium somehow this year.

and no he is 73 kg right now, which is perfectly normal, riders easily gain up to 5 or more kg during off season, or in pieri's case 15 kg
No actually I am 190cm and used to be only 70kg for a few years, now I'm skinny for sure, but nothing unhealthy. (I'm almost 75kg now ) BMI is just fine for 190cm and 70kg.

Is he becoming now a trash talker? Do you mind posting the source of his comments?

This sounds promising, but agree we need a bit more info.
