Anyone know what Westra is doing? I wouldn't mind for him to do the Giro- it has a long ITT, he went well on Mende so he should handle steep stuff (though the climbs are longer) and he could get a top 10 in a GT, boosting his confidence and leaving the TDF to De Gendt . If worse comes to worst there he can just support Rujano and have another good stage race beforehand.

Yeh there seems to be a couple of little hills towards the end, like a TdS "sprint" stage. The Payerne stage is ridiculous though.

Is there any information about Edvald Boasson Hagen from Team Sky?
Is he going to ride the Ronde and Roubaix for the win?
Because Flecha is away ...

Well obviously he'll be riding them hoping to win but realistically his and Sky's best chance of a monument win in 2013 is Milan-San Remo.

Id say the antioquenos have as good a chance of taking liege or lombardy.

I was going to say closely followed by the Colombians in those two races although for both of them there are riders who are much bigger favourites for the win (Gilbert/Purito). Milan-San Remo is much more open with no rider who you could say has a very clear margin over EBH for the win.
