Brothers seem to be doing a PR offensive, gave an interview to the French VeloMag, a lot of "it was hard" and "all will be better"

Frank is often the key man in minor stage races iirc.

(also when the brothers starts together)

Andy hasn't yet shown that he will be better than Frank again, though the lack of racing should keep Frank from being as good as he was.

Frank being team leader could be good for Andy too.

Frank is more serious in traning and racing and that may pull Andy out of that hole he is in.

Lol good question.

Hopefully Andy can perform a little better with Frankie near.

Good shedule. I dont think it's heavier than the previous ones.

No iberian races in febuary, but Oman to get some days early. No Cali, but Romandie for Andy. Only logical, since the form should be there after the classics. ToL should help to be more competitive at TdS which could be important to get some results/confidence before the Tour.

Abandony always does a 'heavy' schedule on paper.

In reality with all the time riding in the gruppetto or quitting, he's only really riding a couple of weeks.

So a better question would be: how many races will Abandony complete this year? Half of them?



As for winning :o:

Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

Seems like a good idea to drop California and do Tour of Luxembourg instead. The most interesting addition is Tour of Romandie, it starts just 2 days after LBL, so Andy could be in a pretty good shape. The last time he did this race was in 2007 and he came in 8th on GC IINM. Though I have not seen the parcours (don't think it's been revealed yet)

His best Tour to date had Fränk crashing out in the first week, so I don't think so.

Vincezo Nibali joins Anquetil, Gimondi, Merckx, Hinault and Contador as only the 6th winner of all 3 Grand Tours! Bravo Lo Squalo!
