...[Walsh] thinks we're ahead of the curve. But think about it for a sec. We're building long-lasting, trusting relationships with people who are spending a lot of money - Coke, Nike, Subaru. If we're f***ing lying, we can kiss it all goodbye. And if we were lying we'd do some stupid stuff to try to cover it up, wouldn't we? Does anybody think for a second that a secret that big wouldn't come out? Bill Stapleton
OGE are taking a very strong sprint team with all of the key Goss men riding. Lancaster should be fitter for his first race in Qatar and Impey is hopefully ok after his heavy crash at TDU. Mouris, Beppu and Keukeleire were involved in the sprint train for Kroupis at Qatar with Baden Cooke for the swingman on the tougher stages to either sprint himself or to guide Goss through to the finish.
Stage 2 will be a fantastic spectacle also don't forget. The climb of Al Jissah is on a decent road but it's average is around 8% for 2 miles. That'll blow a lot of "training" riders out the back and a lot of sprinters.
