It seems Michael Hepburn isn't starting either the RR or TT. Does anybody know the reason?

Think this race will be an important indicator for us Astana fans to see if Maxim has managed to get his *** on the bike and trained properly this winter.
Personally I am afraid that the LBL victory might have killed his motivation to do what needs to be done form him to reach his top form

Early weather forecast suggests perfect weather for the TDU. No sign in the early forecasts of 35-45C temps, which mean there may not be a lot of wind around either.

Many of the Euros come out a week before to acclimatise. I think they should be alright.
I'm interested to see what Koen de Kort can do in the TDU for Argos now they finally have an invite. He has spent the last 3-4 off seasons based on the Gold Coast and is usually flying this time of the year.

He obviously won't win the GC but does anyone think that he could shake things up a little?
