This Tirreno of 2013 will never be won by Tony. That's my point.

He may win other editions but he'll never beat this field. What has he proven against these guys?

Heck, he already lost time against the likes of henao in the algerve.

He's riding P-N, so I'm not even talking about what BR tries to come up with.

I could see him win it in the future and Miburo was talking in general, not for this year.

I was talking about this year, not in general. I thought that was obvious.

This discussion was going on in T-A 2013 thread a few hours ago.

That never gets old lol
He is a very good cyclist who should be respected for how good he is in his discipline and he does have a good palmares in stage races (even if they are boring- except for ToB last year)

Is there a better way to sit on a TT bike?
Tony's position is simply perfect this season.

When you see it in motion it's not that great IMO, he rocks the bike quite a bit. Like the poster above I prefer Cancellara.
