Can't stop the Gorilla!

Greipel is going to show what was hidden at HTC for tooo long.

It is early in the season, but he's going to be there all year baby! Omega Pharma better get their train worked out fast, because Lotto is already set up to win when the conditions are right.

Hope the crash wasn't as bad as it looked. Farrar got a nasty concussion last year.


Jeebus. Someone put stabilizers on Farrar's bike or something. This guy crashes all the time.

True, but the cars did not cause the accidents.

What a joke of a comment.

And you're basing this on? Twitter? An online forum?

Stick to your little fantasy games champ.
The fact is, no one has done more to make doping in sports seem like an evil than Lance Armstrong in his prime, desperately, passionately, ferociously guarding the perception that he was clean.

Hmmm, I just saw there were a lot of time differences for a flat stage, 'guess it's due to the crashes people are talking about. Sucks for Kelderman, losing 1:42 while he wasn't too far behind in the GC. :(

Also sucks for my cq team, having picked Kelderman and Morton, who both wern't too far behind on GC, but lost time in this flat stage.

Dunno, depends if Kelderman got hurt or not. He falls even more than Gesink, unbelievable this guy. He should change his name to Keldermaar
