it would be a success for him to actually make it to the finishing line.

Schleck was 31st in 2011, so it's nonsense anyway...

I remember a couple of years ago Frank talking about riding Flanders so.... About LLS, I'm looking forward to watching him in San Remo. He has nice descending skills and tactically very good so maybe he has a shot there like Gerrans did.

I can't see Andy finishing Strade Bianche unless he has changed his attitude.

Or maybe Andy will carry the Water bottles to Spartacus hoping he will change his mind and tow him around France yet again.

why not? strade binache is basically a hilly race with a small field, so not too much banging around the peloton
