He looks a world apart from the pre-Giro '12 Phinney.
...[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

I don't disagree with the possibility of him struggling up a climb with the much lighter guys.

Partly true. Also appreciating the way he races more.

My Stage 2 bets theirs a few too many but think theirs value.

This strikes me as classics stage if ridden fast a good test for the spring racing.

Agreed. I'm particularly interested to see how Nocentini goes as I don't think he's ridden Oman before has he?

I'm hoping for something from Gallopin too if he wants to better last years 3rd place.

Also curious as to how Boonen's elbow will handle a little uphill test. Certainly looked to be ok today, but that was flat all the way.

Gallopin does not seem in same frame of mind suprising since most other shack riders have been in good shape.

Hoping Bonnen can hang about dont expect him to be too risky but would be in his interests to try hang in.

Surprisingly Gallopin was top radioshack dog in Qatar and he'll go well tomorrow. French quotes that this was on the radar. I backed him at 50s

My members were the reason for closing the Paddy Power book on Sagan. We scooped from 8s downwards from 6.15 to 6.30, market closed by 7

Major rick a la Stage 3 Le Tour 2012,

Max bet at 10s is right !

Yes I got on max EW at 615 and put out on Twitter (@gizza_tips) at 617 and then posted here at 620 so plenty of Forum readers got the decent odds on Sagan and drove down the price.

What was surprising about Gallopin in Qatar? Last year was the same, and yes, today's stage suits him.

Contador of course, when was he ever able to resist? :D

I know he'll go for it if he has the legs.
