Well, I'll give you that one. I forgot about the Italian connection too.

Okay. I guess that sounds reasonable enough.

What our thread started hasn't even voted

Nice on narking us out

It will be a good thing he's back, it was getting a bit repetitive seeing Gilbert win it all, now at least someone will at least challenge him and not lead him out (ala the Schlecks!).

Don't get your hopes up. If history has taught us anything he won't really be back until 2013.

Same form or not, great competition from various threats are always great for the sport.

I hope he comes back on FIRE!

if the rumours that he has been training like a mad man over the last 2 years are true i can see him returning to his former self by the ardennes (if he races a heavy early season schedule to get some racing k in his legs) and really shale things up

him and costa will show gilbert and the schlecks how a real 1-2 tactic is done

But GVA, Cadel and Gilbert will show Piti and his sidekick Costa what a 1-2-3 tatic is.

Stephens and White have turned from the dark side so they won't be doing such a thing.
