Peraud, Löfkvist and Boom ready to pounce, no RaLT won't win anything in the near future.

Monfort can lose it. Anyone with a bit of common sense will know. He is a strong time trialist who performs best when not under pressure. Radioshack only have 6 riders left in the race, two of whom will get over the climb in a gruppetto (hondo and nizzolo). I don't think three riders can keep the race together. Plus boom is a strong guy on the flat and he is a good sprinter. So he can easily slip away in the last couple of kms.

Maybe you wanna bet, 'cause these two above are, obviously, afraid?

What Leopard rider are we talking about here? They're genetically predisposed to finish 5th, 7th, 11th, and 15th.

And what's your predisposition... Malice? Is it inherited or acquired?
First, we'll have to see who's going to ride it.
