I don't know if that was worth entire chances in GC and but today surely felt SO GOOOD.

I really hate the idea of the team trying to retrofit him into stage racer guy.

It may ruin him as a great classics rider.

I was even afraid to ask him that question in a meeting with fans as to not to give people bad ideas.

If he performs likewise tomorow all the doubts about his ability will surely be discarded.

Props to Kreuziger for bringing excitement before the last 3k, great win, he only failed miserably when he tried to look happy:D
Let us remember what happened on March 16th, 2014

What a disgrace, Roman deserved that headline photo on the CN homepage instead of Hesjedal. He'll get his on Sunday :)

Now that this nightmare gc wise in the giro is almost over we can finally look forward to the tour...
How will Astana ride the tour this year? they are going into the tour with Kessiakoff, Brajkovic, Kiserlovski, Kash, Vino, yes even Iglinsky might suprise us all.

All of the above might be capable of a top 10 this tour, but who will it be? what strategies will they have going into the tour?

None are capable imo ;)

Kiserlvoksi - Too much ITT for him.

Kash - When did he perform last time ?

Brajkovic - Gets sick and crashes, even if he won't he will not get Top 10.

Kessiakoff - Unproven, Top 20 posibly rather than Top 10

Vino - Possibly stage win, but with injuries he had and tough season so far, I really doubt a Top 10 for him. Still I will cheer him almighty and hope he does as good as he can.

That's my, possibly pessimistic look on it :p

Kash - When did he perform last time ? - He just needs to do some real work in his preperations for once and he will win the whole **** (If Rujano can go into a gt as a favourite, why not Kash... :o)

Brajkovic - Gets sick and crashes, even if he won't he will not get Top 10. - meh... :o

Kessiakoff - Unproven, Top 20 posibly rather than Top 10 - we will see

Vino - Possibly stage win, but with injuries he had and tough season so far, I really doubt a Top 10 for him. Still I will cheer him almighty and hope he does as good as he can. - Vino will see that his team needs him. He get on his bike, get into form and wear the yellow jersey in Paris.

That's my, possibly pessimistic look on it :p


I do also belive Iglinsky can do what Vino did in 03
