Hope Evans on his birthday, but I doubt that will happen.

Purito will win it
Peter Sagan:
"I under-evaluated him (Gerald Ciolek) a little bit. I was watching Cancellara, who was trying to break free, and maybe I did too much work," Sagan said. "Ciolek stayed in the wheels and he took my wheel to do the sprint and was able to beat me. I went too early in the sprint."

I think you've answered your own question. Froome went from a Grand Tour to the olympics to the Vuelta. any wonder he wasn't able to ride away from them -hardly fresh? not as if Contador was riding away from anyone in the 2011 TDF after his exploits in the win at the Giro?


Yes he did, several times.

I just got one from Chris Froome. It says and I quote

"Thanks Wheelie for being my best friend ever. Enjoy your day. Many thanks. Chrissie."

aww, that was sweet wasn't it ?


Class post!
(He might also have reminded you that his bil***** has come back, disproving your post on p66, and he's had the same treatment as last year, so I think its best not to expect too much of him, this early. So long as he beats Wiggo, he'll be happy)

So, sweeping clinic references to anyone Spanish but not Froome? Nice.

Your last few posts belong in the clinic. Maybe a mod could split this thread? Supposed to be about Oman (although i do love the suspense on the Green Mountain stage with no coverage :D )

Exactly.
...[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

Lets see if these guys will be able to get themselves a satellite phone when we hit the same mountain next year.
