So just Radioshack then.

Anyway, I had a feeling this was going to happen. Can't say I'm surprised. :)

I hope he has something left for the ardennes though. The way he dropped Valverde and Cunego on Mende suggests he could do something there

Forget about Westra. What's Poels going to do?

Poels and Johnny super tandem! Although Poels said he might skip AGR to fully focus on Fleche Wallone.

Which, for a Dutchman, and a Limburger at that, is pretty refreshing. I doubt he'll actually do it though.

Congrats to Kristoff for stage a ( good to see him sprinting well ).

Great ride by Chavanel. Nice rides by Tuft and Terpstra along with Westra ( who went well but beaten by Chavanel on superior form ) and Bodnar ( who ends up working for team leaders more than racing for himself ).
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

The Grand Boucle wasn't just Europe's for the taking.

You know it's Bodnar from Bank BGZ and not the one from Liquigas right ? ;)

Yeah! I got a prediction right. I think I was the only one on this entire forum that predicted Chavanel to win :D
