i don't hate jvdb. like i said, i wasn't even part of the previous discussion, i just find it amusing that so many s-americans finish ahead of him on todays stage after yesterdays ryo/el pisti discussion

gosh you're annoying and beside the point...

I'm eager to see how Tejay can climb against the South Americans tomorrow. He has a real chance to win the overall GC for the first time in his career in a stage race.

Not the first time he's had this chance, he had the chance in the US Pro challenge last year. But lost time to Vande Velde on flagstaff, then wasn't able to win it back in the TT.

I would love to see Tejay win the overall here, but I doubt he can beat the South Americans on their own terrain.

I'm feeling the same way unfortunately. These guys are peaking for this race, it's one of the biggest races of the year for them.

Hushovd finished last again, 5 minutes behind the 2nd last...

Not looking good for him.

Yeah I noticed that too. Sadly, I can't see him in top shape for Roubaix.

The bib number looks to me that it ends in 2
so that would indicate Cobo!

nah, some training back in Monaco will get Hushovd in shape for P-R no doubt.

He just can't be bothered with other races these days (except TdF).

He also had a good chance in the Tour of California last year but then blew on Mount Baldy
