All of the riders that have ridden it so far have stated that it is very technical and there is barely any straight sections and is always going up or down. I believe most riders will opt for regular road bikes.

In fact, if you consider the way Rabobank took them apart in Paris-Nice (and what happened when Caisse used the same tactic in stage 1 of Castille Leon), Astana are very much the team who get beaten. I really don't get the Leipheimer hype - if he's ever to win a GT, then it's most likely to be the Vuelta. He simply doesn't have Contador's natural class.

Laurent wrote:while, i have admiration for Cunego as a one day rider who fights hard, I have serious doubts over his credentials as a grand tour rider. yes, he's won the Giro but by his own admission that was against a very weak field and a marked Simoni. He went like a bag of spanners in last year's tour and he's not shown any signs of winning a grand tour since his giro triumph. That was five years ago. Possible top five but that's about it.
