yep, perhaps he will just sign autographs and whine about other amateur sprinters. We shall see.

I sense a disturbance in the force.
...[Walsh] thinks we're ahead of the curve. But think about it for a sec. We're building long-lasting, trusting relationships with people who are spending a lot of money - Coke, Nike, Subaru. If we're f***ing lying, we can kiss it all goodbye. And if we were lying we'd do some stupid stuff to try to cover it up, wouldn't we? Does anybody think for a second that a secret that big wouldn't come out? Bill Stapleton

Well, first of all, it was meant as a joke. Everytime Sagan won a stage during last ToC, Haussler was second.
However, indeed, I don't think cav will win anything in Argentina, as many have said, he does not have really impressive starts to season. On the other hand, Tour de San Luis is very important for "new" Cannondale team, so I expect the riders to be in quite good shape for it. We'll see. Hopefully, there will be some tv coverage from it.

Cav will win two stages and podium another :cool:
Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

got the ref to California.
Last year Quick Step banked 5 stages and the overall in the race (current CQ data). Pretty serious business. Don't think it will be a walk in the park for Cannondale this year, but as you say: the action will tell the full story.

The race is growing, and when the organizers want´s more attention for the race they invite bigger teams. And with that there isn´t much place left for local teams. As simple as it´s. How mant French team did you see in last years TdF? Or how many Italian Teams did you see in the Giro? etc etc
I don´t think Lotto Belisol is a "ridicolous" team..

in argentina and south america. cycling is very local. so nobody has ever heard about lotto or most of the european teams or cares. why do you think races in argentina such as doble bragado and vuelta san juan are way more popular?

I want to see VDB2 win a stage, hopefully against a colombian. Should be quite funny to read your comments :D

Call yourself lucky that Contador is there ;)
