This race is so promising. If we get half the action there was in Oman it'll prob be one of the best editions lol

Don't know, I want to vote Alberto but I am not sure. Anything can happen. Actually, I expect Froome to put 30" into Alberto in the tt :o

I'll jump on Evans early.

He needs to show some good early season form after last years health problems and the TOO is giving him some kms to loosen the racing cobwebs.

I think he'll be fit and aggressive in T-A.

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

1 CANCELLARA, Fabian (RADIOSHACK-NISSAN) 10:36
2 BENNATI, Daniele (RADIOSHACK-NISSAN) + 0:12
3 MEYER Cameron (GREENEDGE) + 0:16

Contador will lose around 15s imo.

No way! I'm expecting very small gaps between the top GC guys in the TT.

I voted for Contador, although I'm sure it's gonna be close between him and Froome.

Honestly I don't care much who's gonna win. It's gonna be amazing anyway.

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."

Peter Sagan:
“We went away in a break on the Oude Kwaremont, but then Cancellara went for it on the Paterberg and I wasn’t able to follow him,”

I think Nibs and Alberto will not lose much time to each other, a few seconds, but they will lose about 20 seconds to Froome. So they have to attack together :cool:

Well, Froome must be on Cancellara's level to put 20 second into Contador and Nibbles. I don't think he is there yet. But it wouldn't be the first time he surprises me :o
