Still, it is ironic how a fan of one of the most fragile riders in the peloton keeps dismissing other riders for being too fragile.

Yep, my point exactly.

BRESCHEL Matti Denmark
KREUZIGER Roman Czech Republic
LUND Anders Denmark
MORKOV Michael Denmark
ROCHE Nicholas Ireland
SUTHERLAND Rory Australia
SØRENSEN Nicki Denmark
ZAUGG Oliver Switzerland

Looks strong enough to support Kreuziger on this parcours. This appears to be the kind of opportunity he needs to take.


New line-up for Saxo-Tinkoff since Kreuzuger is doing T-A instead of P-N ;) :)

Matti Breschel (Den)
Anders Lund (Den)
Michael Morkov (Den)
Nicolas Roche (Irl)
Nicki Sörensen (Den)
Rory Sutherland (Aus)
Mads Christensen (Den)
Evgeny Petrov (Rus)

I see, reinforcement needed at TA perhaps. Understandable, its important.

So P-N will be a good chance for Roche.

That must hurt RK a bit. He has no chance of T-A.

I wonder how well Roche will go. Signs were good earlier this month.

Looks like Saxo are taking this rather more seriously than Sky.

Because Saxo just took the strongest rider off the Paris Nice roster and moved him to Tirreno?

Was Roman really the strongest rider? Based on early season performance so far, I would say that was Roche.

Perhaps Edvald doesn't want to go to Tenerife this year either.

Could also just be the Sky website mixing up Boswell (who originally was scheduled to start) and Boasson...


Boswell is now listed on the Sky site as riding Paris-Nice. EBH heads to Tenerife...

Accordiing to ebsite for La Samyn

The eight-man line up sees the return of Mathew Hayman from injury, and he will replace Edvald Boasson Hagen.


Eddie injured, out of form?

EBH was never supposed to be riding La Samyn. It was only when Hayman got injured that he was provisionally listed as starting.

Agree; at present it's Roche with better form. Though if kreuziger was here, roche wouldn't be working for him.

Agreed I think Roche would still have been team leader if Roman had been there. His performances so far this year have been promising albeit the races havent been that high in star quality. He was still in with a shout of winning both races going into the last stage. Hopefully he can get it right this year and pick up a few stages and go well in the classics also!

Yes, but Kreuziger > Roche, only he was ill.
