He will bring peace in the Middle East and then flick V-signs to Murdoch.

There was no Vino option, so I had to go with creating peace in the Middle East, because only Vino could do that.

I think he's delirious a bit after all success and partying this year.
But if he's serious - the Tour will be real problem. It's difficult enough taken alone, and paired with Giro it's nearly impossible.
I'll understand his latest statements as mind games. Makes more sense.

Basso couldn't do it, hesjedal couldn't do it, Contador couldn't do it, so there is no way Wiggins can do it.

A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.
