The middle part of the climb offers an opportunity for an attack though. If you're strong, a 9% gradient should be enough to create some gaps.

Btw De Gendt is a diesel too, if he's not on the attack.
I think most people on here know Montagne de Lure from the last time it featured in Paris-Nice... it's a tempo climb, perfect for a guy like Van Garderen.

Yup, in theory, he should win all these 1-week stage races like 2012 ToC.

well, ASO would like a new US head figure for the GC role.

Just for the record I like TJVG's commitment to the season. Solid rider with high base level. None of the deep troughs, high peaks stuff. Well, at least so far.

I think Van Garderen will have more trouble with the uphill TT. His last results in mountain TTs:

Paris - Nice, Stage 8 : Nice - Col d'Eze I.T.T. (9.5 km)
1. [GBR] WIGGINS Bradley SKY 19'12" 40
2. [NED] WESTRA Lieuwe VCD 02" 25
3. [FRA] PERAUD Jean-Christophe ALM 33" 15
4. [SLO] SPILAK Simon KAT 47" 10
5. [FRA] COPPEL Jérôme SAU 51" 5
6. [ESP] VALVERDE BELMONTE Alejandro MOV 52" 3
...
14. [USA] VAN GARDEREN Tejay BMC 01'15"

USA Pro Cycling Challenge - Tour of Colorado, Stage 3 : Vail - Vail Pass I.T.T. (16.1 km)
1. [USA] LEIPHEIMER Levi RSH 25'47" 20
2. [USA] VANDE VELDE Christian GRM 10
3. [COL] INFANTINO ABREU Rafael EPM 04" 5
4. [USA] DANIELSON Tom GRM 33" 3
5. [NED] CLEMENT Stef RAB 40" 0
6. [USA] VAN GARDEREN Tejay THR 51"

Same goes for Gesink, BTW. He sucks even more in them.

both struggling a bit with the concept still perhaps, but lets see if they can get closer to Westra this time.

It wasn't mtf.
Edit:
My mistake.
It was mtf, but on Mont Serein. Not on top of Ventoux.

Think we shouldn't compare Gesink with last years results or pre-leg break results.
This year is a fresh start.
