I don't know about that. If I remember correctly, Szmyd was by far the strongest guy in the hills in that race, so he'd probably have won the MTF imo.

TAWK. TT like in last years Dauphine and kill Toni on Malhao. Should be a piece of cake.

Thanks. Stage 5 looks like it could be good fun, coming a day after Green Mountain.

Not bad for a short stage race. At least every stage has a lump in it.

It's hard, small group (GC contenders only) for sure.

Looks like Sky's Giro squad + Froome, already sorting the Wiggins train out.

It was his 1st race of the year.... and he was total domestique for Wiggins..

What the hell can you expect more ffs ?



Sky's Oman squad looks bit ridiculous

Well nothing, but somebody went arround saying he was one of the strongest, which I don't think he was, because he had poor form because it was the first race of the season.

Since he isn't domestiquing for Wiggo and since he has more race rythm now, he should definitely be considered one of the favourites, considering the field, which I already affirmed.
