Rogers got this in the bag then.

Good thing for those guys that the TT finishes on a 15% climb. Very weird course.

davide said he trained on the time trial machine so let's hope for the best
but yes i agree that rogers in good form can smoke this. or a turbo diesel from the good old days someone from europcar will certainly be in the mix too

delfino i'm afraid he's not in shape to win this yet,the truth is that i have no idea, maybe he is...

Thomas Dekker himself uses this name on his FB page, so I guess it's his official nickname. Still it refers more to his good old days, since his return we've yet to see the diesel become Turbo. Vaughters seems optimistic though.
