The Amazing Wilco Kelderman.

BTW, you asked about Malhao: even last year, when Tony Martin was climbing like a brick for most of the season, he made the top-10 on Malhao. That's how hard that climb is. And judging by the Mallorcan races, his climbing legs are back.

Thanks.
stage 3 looks good for some hilly action, but clearly we need a serious climbing stage somewhere to balance the long TT. Hell Bert Grabsch could almost win this GC.

Look at his Wilco's face, it's soft as velvet. I could write a poem about it. No doubt about it he'll win this race but just maybe he'll let some guys pass and go for a top 10 to not ruin their confidence completely. It's still early season.

Indeed. But who do you think he will gift it to? Tony didn't really have the best season last year, so maybe he will gift it to him, no?

way too soft for me. This boy can't make it. Where are the scars? Any record of broken bones?

Damn, instead of interval training he will be at the manicure shop.

He's had his share of broken collar bones/wrist/what have you. But he still dominated the U23 scene. So I guess there is something angelic about him.
