He's literally never done that before. And he's only ever had a top 10 in a March race one, years back at Eroica.


if he manages it I will take a Andy avatar until the tour...

He sounds very optimistic which is great to hear. Would be awesome if he joins Froome, Purito and Nibali at the front this week.

LBL should be easy for him.;)

What he actually said was:

"...I'm not specifically looking for a result that looks good on paper but I'd hope that on the climbs I can stay with the 10 best in front."

I have my fingers crossed but I suspect your avatar is safe, although he is looking lean and talking the right talk:)

If Andy is serious about using Oman to guage his fitness, then he should be all over stage 4. Will be an excellent hit out to gauge his Ardennes prep.

Top 10 is his goal after 2 years of free salary?

o come on.:D Give the guy a break. He seems to be a lot more focus and determine to get back to his best. Nice to hear at least he got some target to shoot for. Not very lofty, but considering in the past two years he's been reduced to a footnote, top 10 doesn't seem to be that bad. (especially compare to old andy who likes to soft pedal all the way until LBL and the tour). THIS, maybe Andy v.2.0

I never got, what's the problem with people that make fun of someone else contantly.
I guess they lack something, at best.


It's soooooo lame.

By the way, is this a discussion thread, or a who makes the dumbest jokes thread?

Yes, his one goal of the season is to make top 10 in Oman. :rolleyes: did you read Ferryman's post?

And +1 to this. Especially the bolded.

I agree. Andy is both dumb and a joke.

The only thing you can do about it is ignore netserk. nobody else has the combination of mod powers and shamelessness to take the conversation to that place. If he wasnt a mod he would face the light of justice that keeps all the regular posters in check.

He's no longer a mod as far as I know.

My fault, since I based my opinion merely on the CN front page news title on Andy & never bother reading further that he was merely looking to stay with the top 10 climbers.... Quite deceiving title from the CN folks-don't you think?

I would be great if he can climb among the top ten riders in Oman...it is difficult, but it would be a good signal.. he has trained very hard this winter, even not stop for coffe.. his team mates must hate him

I hope Frank rides well this year; for Andy I don't have expectations anymore. Whatever he wins this year it will be a good surprise for me.
