Hopefully AC will improve as much for July as Rogers have done so far, compared to Feb/March/april.

AC for yellow this July! :p

Yes, look at Evans. Only a month ago I, among many others, had completely written him off as a GT contender. He has done exceptionally so far. Hopefully Alberto has undergone a similar transformation!:)

It's coming together nicely. We have now seen form from RK, Paulinho, Rodgers, Majka. I would love to see AC take down Sky :D

I hope Majka stays away from the Tour. There's no point in having him there; Contador is better of with some more experienced riders like Kreuziguer, Paulinho, Rogers, Roche and the Sorensens.
Majka should rest after whatever the result he gets from the Giro (top10 or top100) and prepare for his home tour and the italian autumn season.

I remember that moment. About 15 seconds he later looked over at Lance one more time and then rode away from everyone. My favorite moment from the 2009 Tour

With a 2ndGiro win he would be one of the few to win every GT two times. Although I believe a 3rd (:rolleyes:) Tour win would be better than a 2nd (:rolleyes:) Giro win, a Giro win would be easier than a tour win I think. Anything is better than nothing I guess.


Alberto will get his 3rd (:rolleyes:) Tour this July :)

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

If Alberto does do the Giro it won't be because he wants to have won 2 of every tour. As far as he and his fans are concerned he already has.

I do think it would be cool to see him do the giro though. That way he can do the Vuelta as well and I can have 2 months of GTs to enjoy.
