When he does that he will get Respect...doesn't need to win it just ride like a winner...like Pippo did today.

Nibali becomes only the 6th winner of all 3 GTS (2014)!
Nibali joins Gimondi, Merckx and Hinault as only the 4th man to win all 3 GTS and 2 different Monuments (2018). A throwback rider in this age of specialization. Bravo!

According to news articles there are two options for the official yellow jersey ceremony so far:

Prudhomme wants 23 of April, after LBL

Luxembourgers would like to do it during the Tour de Luxembourg (30 May to 3 June) to attract more attention to the event. In recent years Andy has not ridden it though

"One year ago, Philippe Gilbert had won almost every race he took part in and he doesn't seem to go so well now. Where is Valverde? I don't know where he's at. What I know is that my morale has been boosted by my ride at La Sarthe. I couldn't have had the same feeling if I was training alone and looking at my watts on my computer. That doesn't replace racing. My form and my mental are good now."


I am the first to predict the winner of LBL.

Don't you love it when people bash Andy in the APPRECIATION thread? Aren't there 5 other dedicated Andy-bashing threads already?

What bash?

I truly believe he is the favourite and with better tactics from the car plus a more human Gilbert than last year he is the real deal right now.

If Andy goes out and wins LBL he will get all the appreciation he rightly deserves! We shall see, I hope he makes a race of it!
