Albasini has been a strong finisher for years.

Andy is definitely more explosive than wiggins. His acceleration is average. Good enough for when it counts.: 2010 tour, LBL, FW. It's hard to win an ardennes classic or podium it if you completely lack explosiveness.

Oman
Volta a Catalunya
Trentino
LBL

Tour

Possibly one more race somewhere in that schedule I think.

Wiggo keeps changing his mind. I think Froome is ready to punch him.

"Bradley Wiggins has confirmed that he is ready to attempt the extremely rare and difficult feat of winning the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France in the same season."

Seriously, this guy is not well. His erratic behavior continues.

Unavoidable plan, but very big goal. Could make it.
