There was only 60 km TT (with a hill in both TT) in that tour, and there was even a TTT which was in the advantage of Astana.

Against the Contador of that time there was no way that it would have happened. Even when the parcours wasn't that hard.

It stays retarded...And yeah very hard TDS lol

Evans is ancient, he ain't going to stay around for 3 more years.

No Schleck? As if that would've mattered with all the time trials.

Sanchez? He ain't going to do the Tour this year. And he's also pretty old already.

Hesjedal? VDB2 beat him at the Tour in 2010. You're grasping at straws.

Gesink? Lol.

So you're saying that the great TT'er VDB2 would have put so much time on schleck in the TT that he couldn't make that up in the mountains?

The Great Schleck would've been a solid candidate for Lantern Rouge in his '12 form.

You don't pick up sarcasm either... is that a dying art?

I agree spending too much time in the Clinic blunts your sense of perception.

About the hard TDS, yeah was hard to figure out Btw wasn't the 'lol' obvious?

About the rest of my post. I was just giving arguments into why this serious debate was unfounded. Because it was indeed a serious debate, that's all.

Check my posts in the clinic, i think i've at best 3 posts, do some research

Maybe, but this all doesn't change the fact that he'll still own VDB2 in the tour this year. I'm hoping he has some motivation and pride and that should be more than enough to take down VDB2

Just like Contador, froome. And there are many other names that are pretty much equal or slightly better than VDB2.

The point was that the only way VDB2 can reach podium is when riders start falling, everybody knows that.

It's stupid from Museeuw bringing out a statement like that counting on bad luck for other riders.

Yeah, because in the Tour a rider never falls out.

Let's wait if Schleck can finish a race this season before we start making silly predictions shall we.

They guy has been top 5 in the last 2 Tour editions he finished. It's not a stupid statement.

According to your logic Samuel Sanchez can't win Lombardia unless someone crashes out.

It's just ridiculous to count on that to make this bold prediction. Besides if he couldn't do it in 2012, then when? lol

SS almost won it '09 but some guy beat him

And winning a classic as an underdog is a 'bit' easier than a GT
