This is a great race but if it snows/freezes which it probably will he is screwed

Too young to write a post?

I think I already explained my view on Andy's performance that day more than enough. And no, I don't think he was the strongest climber that year.

Obviously he's training again, he still did some races at the end of this year remember? You can't do that if you can't even train yet.

He will start at the TDU this year because he has a lot of catching up to do, so better start early. It will probably take a few races before he reaches a decent level though...

He raced Beijing and made it through most of the race. So from that I think we can assume he is back to training. He'll also be starting his racing season earlier than usual at the Tour Down Under in order to get back to form as well.

Also agree with the bolded, after this year we need Andy to come back and resume his mountain battles with Contador.

Schleck will have a nice rival in the Tour Mediterranéen to measure his level early in the season.

Rolland will begin his 2013 season at Étoile des Bessèges, before tackling the Tour Mediterranéen and Tour de Langkawi. The main objectives of his spring will be Critérium International, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and the Tour de Romandie.

Thanks for sharing! Stage 3 (Marseille - St. Rémy) looks amazing. I have done the ascension to Les Baux by bike and by car, it is one of my favourites. If I was still living there I'd definitely go see it. But, alas
