Tibopino just completed the 59km cross country skiing race "La Transjurassienne", 50th in 2h42'. Bravo Tibo!

I didn't know he was spelled with a d.
Goodbye, Tommeke; thank you for all you have given us!

Wary about the fact, that he is to do the Giro-Tour double again. Skipping the Tour would have been better imo, but you can't have it all. Hoping for a Giro podium and some victories in the late Italian autumn races, which I have fallen in love with!

He's mainly doing the Tour for pr reasons to please the teams sponsors. He might try to win a stage, but furthermore Giro d'Italia & the Italian fall classics should be the his main season goals.

Let's party like it's 1987 lads! And the Pinot is Irish ;) .

"17 was Thibaut back on the GT map, in a very convincing fashion, '18 is the crossroad: as his #1 fanboy here, I get to set the expectations :p .

Three preparation stage races: an early win as a bonus, Trentino (I can't call this TdA) is the first true test. Win or like last year, second and a stage. Build up.

No ifs, no buts, podium at Il Giro. In the predictions thread, I have Tibopino second: I don't want to jinx him. But...

Tour: I hate this, hated it last year. More recup, still...very scary proposition. Week one will be a lottery and luck is fickle: good in '14, bad in '15...I'm happy with a stage, dreaming of a polka-dot in Paris, maybe more.

RRWC: small group for a sprint: Valverde. Pinot to medal?

Late season: one win.

We'll see...
