Instead they increase their coverage of skiing, which is surely the cleanest sport in the world
I predicted such an outcome, but the sport will have to endure out of the limelight as it ever has.

Really looking forward to watching some LIVE racing. Staring at livetickers all day and watching crappy french recaps on youtube is wearing me out.

Lol, have you spoken to any of the general public lately?

Cycling equals doping right now.

thinking outside the box- I'm going with Pozzato, S Chavanel & Leukemans. So glad to finally see the season officially going with OHP.

If Radioshack isn't participating at Omloop and Kuurne the organizer should have given a wildcard to Bontrager-Livestrong to give Stuyven a first plateau to shine !

Foreign continental teams are not allowed to participate in .HC races and there are enough higher ranked teams to participate in KBK.

For the podium, choose two of:
Boom, Chavanel, Terpstra, EBH, Hushovd, Roelandts, Nuyens

plus Pozzato.

Pippo to heavily mark the wrong man, finishing second.
