Maybe because he's the cure to sky?

That sucks, I was looking forward to more after Qatar.

So, no more mid-week racing on tv until Nice?

You know what's funny Dr Horrible the Mad Elephant Man started cheering for Alberto for exactly the same reason (during Vuelta) but when Alberto finally won la Vuelta he went berserk and got himself banned I hope the same doesn't happen to ACF

total agreement. i've seen healthier looking jockeys. i'm 3 stone heavier now than my racing days and would be considered exactly the right weight for my height. these lads have no arses and look more fragile than tissue paper.

You should see Gilbert in the flesh. Tiny and his legs are even tinier. He just looks bigger on the bike. Even the "big" lads are normal only - Burghart, Larsson, all sticks.

if you want do well you cant carry extra weight, i lost 10kg when I pyreennes in france, kept all of my power so i became a much better climber, but still a guy who was 5kg lighter than me but had less power could get away from me and also killed me on steep stuff.

I picked Nibbles again but more importantly at a far bigger price in the bookies, Richie Porte who the season was set around this time of year 2012. He ****ed home in the Algarve after SKY practised their team train with Bo Hagen, Wiggins and Froome and then he tore off up the Alto do Malho. The standard wasn't as good but the form there can't be denied.

Nibali's time trial in San Luis gave me more hope than anything. A good early season time trial normally is an indication of good stamina and a good winter and he comes to form easily through racing. Two weeks on from Argentina (where he started last season also) I'd think his climbing is spot on and Green Mountain is one he knows all too well. He should have won this last year.

Contador shouldn't drop him and in a sprint finish, as the top of it G.M. is flat, I'd have him to take Contador and bonus seconds. He stupidly lost 15 seconds last year trying to attack the Greipel group in the final 5 kilometres and got shelled, losing by 1 second overall. Nailed on for the win this year in my opinion, maybe just by time bonuses.
