So, Ion Izagirre won Valencia, Luis León won Murcia (with Fraile, Fuglsang and Bilbao also in the top 6), Gorka Izagirre is leading Provence and is likely to win (he has to hope that Gallopin doesn't get bonus seconds), Supermán looks like the strongest in Colombia but he has a job to do if he is to drop Dani Martínez today on the queen stage, and Lutsenko just won today in Oman and it is not totally unlikely that he will defend his victory in that race.

So, they could win FIVE stage races within 14 days. With five different riders. What an absolute machine they are right now.

They're being greedy!
Though, imagine if they hadn't won anything, and their most noteworthy contribution to the season so far had been a rap...

I dont really see a stop to it. They could be getting more wins in some of these up-coming one-week races.

Will be interesting to see though if this early season form will carry on to the European Summer.

Astana should take Lopez to the Tour this year. With the amount of altitude it would be a lost opportunity if he didn't go.

Agree Lopez riding the TDF - The three TT's at the Giro will take him out of contention - Its a strange decision by Astana.

Astana performed well this time last year but as a TEAM were a bit disappointing in the GT's - It will be pleasing if they reach their 2015 level.
