I will lightly follow TDF this year...with some little hope of a surprise...not from AC but a Sky implosion...


No way little ritchie gets past Contador unless misfortune strikes but sadly its a race for froome. Best he can hope for is bottom step of podium.

Like you, or similar to you I'm only reading about this tour, no live broadcasts for me.

They are very small, I normally use L and asked for XL which they send, but a XXL wouldnt have been to big either.

Yea I know, but since male sizes are usually larger than female sizes, I didn't know what to do. I had a look at a size chart and found out my chest size would relate to size M so I asked for a L

During the golden years Alberto could hit that "magical" number of 7 watts per kilo, Nibali won the Giro with 5.8 watts per kilo. There is an abyss between the two numbers. Alberto is under heat, thus he can't return to that "magical" level. It's therefore a mystery how Sky is able to reach that these days.

Must have been plateau de beille i guess, i never thought it was that high though. Don't think verbier was that high, you had to lay back then already.

Anyway saxo their team will be real insane.

AC, Rogers, Kreuziger, CAS, Roche, Hernandez, Paulinho (i'm pretty sure these guys will ride it). That's a pretty good climbing team if in shape :D

I wouldn't underestimate Paulinho, if he's 100% he can be really useful. Hernandeze too but he can have a sucky day sometimes but that's ok with a pretty consistent roche and rogers. And Kreuziger? well i would make sure he doesn't lose too much time in the first week, might be helpful. Although that prob won't really work since we all know it's 100% AC but it can never harm.

Kreuziger is the kinda guy unlike rogers that you can really use for a crazy attack. This guy has it in him, not per se for him to go solo but like a set-up but the thing not really many tour stages that fit for it :o

Early attack on the alpe and then AC comes to him in the sarrene climb of 3km and decent like a madman :D And rest assure that gap stage will be used :cool:

Saxo might use Kreuziger for GC if something goes wrong. I think they should try that. Top ten is possible for him any time, but if he's gregario I don!t know...

Your usual blabber, and trust me, it won´t make you look smarter either, I think we can agree on you know as little as I do, or as much if you like, and if you read my other post I also said it don´t have to mean ****, but stranger things have happen, but obviously not in your universe.
