very impressive come back by Sergio. He was really hungry for success after a long period of recovery. Keep on going Sergio :)

What races do you think he will attempt in Ardennes?

Glad he is back and on great form already, it was a terrible injury.

Think he will do all 3 of them, he was 2nd in FW 2 seasons ago and also was in the top 10 in the AGR.

Pretty harsh that Henao led the race for most of it without winning a stage. Doesn't quite represent the glory on his palmares that he probably deserves for this performance.

Don't care if he does not win the stage as long as he wins the overall.

I agree - and want him to win the overall - but on the same TT two years ago Quintana beat him by 40 seconds, so I think the odds are against him - which is why I am saying it would be harsh if he loses the overall that he would have nothing to reflect that he wore yellow for most of the race and arguably made the winning move on two stages.

Good job Henao. Just missed it by a bit. But great come back. Let's target the Ardennes now.

Sky seem to be taking California quite seriously recently to please sponsors so it make sense to send him there and fight for GC.

If he's going to Cali, I really hope it is as Sky's main GC guy; otherwise, what a waste.

Can't see who else it would be - Porte and Konig are doing the Giro at the same time as California is held, Froome won't deviate from his planned schedule of Tour preparations, leaving maybe Roche and ...Kennaugh?
