Well, the opinion comes from him and Radioshack's doctor.

Yeah see he probably shouldn't have said that ... just as they shouldn't have announced his comeback for Vuelta, then USA Cycling Challenge, then GP Québec ......

this means absolutely nothing whatsoever , he is not there to be competitive , he is there to rebuild his fitness slowly and gradually .

everything this guy does is tuned around 3 weeks in july where i expect this guy to be back to his peak and we may just see the best TDF ever .

He came past me several times on the the front of the bunch of four today.

Unfortunately the bunch was the autobus!

At least he was looking forward today when I saw him.

No one expected Andy to be ready and in great form ready to fight for a win at the tour down under. He's just using the race to get back into form (lets not forget he pretty much lost a entire year or racing). Plus he has shown good improvement since the injury and since we last saw him in Beijing. He's been on the front and actually been working hard to stay with the peloton on the hills.

I hope he is working on some recovering therapeutic programme in the race and can not go full throttle so far. So its not so bad.

Come on, the Legend. Breathe optimism into us!

Yeah, Miburo, for lack of hope one should build illusions

Naturally I'm saying about you.

Agreed but I hope LBL is a major objective again this year. I'm just hoping he is going to be more competitive where ever he rides after January. Not holding my breath though.

didnt he say he wanted to enjoy bike racing again and contend for some other races not just july, or some such?
