Yeah, I think so, too.

Whats surprising is the long break between Tirreno and Romandie, Im quite sure hell do something in between, either Catalunya or Pais Vasco.

When he knows hell do the Giro for sure, maybe this would not be necessary, and hed be in altitude between Tirreno and Romandie, for a few weeks.

Froome or Rodriguez for me (rooting for Alberto) Alberto will invest in losing the early season just to measure the level of strength/weakness of his main rivals sort of like Ali in Zaire vrs Foreman then just go to the Tour and rope a dope the hell out of everyone and kick it in the 8th round.

I think Horner is the dark horse here. He should be a bit stronger than last year.

Lol that would be funny.

Alberto is not the favorite for this race according to CN poll that's rare

It is a difficult time for someone suffering from allergies.

Why, is he getting younger now? Or am I missing a joke here?

Horner will fly straight in from a Big Mac meal and crush Froome, Contador et al.

Don't think so, this year there are more stronger riders like Froome, Evans, Contador.

Will be awaiting Dan Martins performance, Garmin should do well in TTT, he says he kinda targets it.... So would be interesting to see where he stands compared to the more obvious choices of the poll
