no no.

I said he was close, never said he would beat spartacus (pretty certain I didn't. I remember the discussion). Either provide quote or no egg on my face boy
I did say he was the clear best after canc. which he is.

I'm on the bandwagon too

I hope he can do the top 10 in the Tour.

By the way, If I remember right, Cancellara said he will not going in the ITT at WC because he will focus on the road race.

the 2009 tour was the ideal race for something like that to happen. with this year route? he won't break the top 20 let alone the top 10

btw in the 2009 tour tony martin got out climbed by the great climber juan manuel garate. how about that for climbing potential?

Well he outclimbed your boy van den Broeck a couple of times in 09 before he cracked cause of tiredness. No wonder he had to work for cav like 100km avery day
