I am wondering. How do you rate Anton's chances at FW and LBL. Sanchez is only riding Amstel and so Anton will be the sole leader. He didnt show much this year, so do you think he'll have a chance to podium FW ?

FW probably up there, LBL, not so sure

Out of the top of my head he has finished 4th and 5th in FW and 7th in LBL. Top 10 in both races might be possible and would be valuable points wise, but I don't see him battling for victory. He's not in good form either.

He's not in bad form, decent ride up the climb in Criterium International and then 3rd at GP Mig last weekend

He did well in F-W in 2010 ( if only he was not being a domestique for Contador/ timing his attacks better he could have podiumed ).

He was nowhere in Pays Vasco, against much better competition. Indurain was basically Movistar vs Anton.

He said himself he was nowhere. First few days was ok, but Arrate was horrible and after that he was spent. He felt tired and not up to it and didn't know why.
