They, however, will want to build a Dutch leader, especially for AGR, anyways.
And Mollema. Forgot about him as well.

Anyways, I think none of all them weve mentioned has the characteristics of an Erik Dekker; they are rather GC hopefuls. Maybe Blanco (or how they are called after 2013) will have to sign Kreder (the one who won two stages in Tour Med last year) one day, provided he continues to develop as Vaughters is predicting.

Michel Kreder has never been anywhere near the front of a biggish race. He doesn't have the engine.

Well they allready realised that since Gesink isn't riding any Ardennes classics this year since he said he didn't get any good results in it anyways.

Good to see Goss hitting some form.
Still opportunities ahead.

well, the "machado will attack" joke didn't came out of nowhere. he has always been a extremely aggressive rider. a shame he always mistimes his attacks and/or lacks the legs to finish it of.

today was another great show of great tactical sense by him, attacking 46k from the finish

btw he just posted this on facebook:

Dia bem duro, mas consegui terminar com o mesmo tempo do vencedor! Ainda tentei a minha sorte perto do final, atacando a cerca de 5km do final Sendo apanhado já dentro dos últimos 2km!!! As sensações foram boas, mas os adversários estão fortes! Há que continuar lutando...
"tough day, but i still managed to finish with the same time as the winner. i tried my luck near the end attacking 5k from the line but ended up getting caught inside the last 2. the sensations were good but the adversaries are strong. got to keep fighting. . ."

i predict attacking from 100k out on willunga

It wasn't a bad attack (the last one at least) but it was always going to be a sprint. The field is just waiting for a guy like that to get in front and act as a target.
