I don't know but I have the gut feeling that Uran is feeling a lot better than last year. Maybe he planned his peak for the Giro and that is the reason why he has taken it a bit easier than last year in the first quarter. Maybe wrong but That what I am seeing with his pedaling in this Giro.

Hope he visits MC and smacks some sense into her....


Well I'm quite sure he'd definitely smack something into her. :cool:

it will depend, if he will work for wiggins and loses his own gc he won't do anything anymore. see also vuelta last year and tirreno this year. he rides for himself or he does nothing. henao same but less extreme

Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

From today's gazzetta.

if they go to quickstep I probably hang myself :L however I don't believe that yet. I also don't think both henao and uran will go to the same team unless it's a colombian team. they are very expensive to get both

Don't worry man, it's the same every year with Lefevere screaming that every rider of note wants to go to his team.

yes, perhaps lefevere even called gazzetta as he often does with papers to spread rumors to feel important. I remember laughing eveyr dya at people who believed contador would go to quickstep. lefevere has a hard time realizing his mapei days are over

If a potential GC rider goes to Quick Step, it is a universal truth that their career as a GC rider will either stagnate or go down the toilet.

The only worse place to move would be Vacansoleil, which more or less return a 100% Clinic hit rate on their GC investments.

Uran to quickstep? huh that's a bad news. it's like what happen in sky, wiggin and cavendish de ja vu. Uran should go to Astana. Nibbles likes to compete in the giro. So Uran can lead the TDF team and make the tweetie bird aka birdsong rides for him :p. Then come Vuelta, Uran will help Nibbles..

OPQS must have a huge budget for next year if that's true: Boonen, Cavendish, Martin, Uran, Henao, Chavanel, Kwiatkowski, Terpstra, Meersman, Velits, Stybar plus probably Renshaw as well. :eek:

I hope he goes nuts, and starts attacking everyone. :D That would be too funny to see Wiggo get dropped by his own teammate again!

I'll state it again: Colombians are no John Gadret.
