Evans will hopefully own this race- 2011 style.

@Miburo: after seeing Nibbles struggling during last stages of Oman, I'm less confident he can be up there with Berto in the TT

Nibbles is quite fast in building his form. Remember last year's Ardennes?

I don't know where you got the idea that he could do that in a TT against Contador

Maybe because we've been watching what Lo Squalo did the last couple of years? Maybe because Contador is not the same guy he once was?

Where have you been?

True, but he was coming from an excellent first part of the season.
He's looking closer to what we've seen in Lombardia, Piemonte and WC at the moment. He really needs to step up if he wants to have a chance in spring races.

Good chance of doing so. He should destroy the TT and can hang in the mountains when he puts his mind to it
