With Schleck in is Horner out? They still have not named the team. Meanwhile
Perhaps Schleck will replace Hondo or Roulston. Not Horner, no way José. :)

You missed pais vasco last year?
Yeah, Pais Vasco was a good win for him. No ones talking him up this year, so it would be pretty cool to see him slip through and get another one, especially with him targeting the Giro this year. I'm hoping he shows some good form heading into it.

LBL would be a good victory for Samu- if he shows good form beforehand i would be willing to say he would be in the top 5 or so favourites.
He'll probably do the usual stealth approach towards a GT. That means he won't do much until Romandie, finishing top 30-ish there. Then who knows what he can do in the Giro. But until now he hasn't shown great form, so I doubt if he'll be visible in Tirreno.

Yes, your right. Horner Tweet; On my way to Tirreno. Lots of great miles in the legs and massages from http://www.sdsmacupuncture.com to keep them going. Time to start racing!

Also said finish he finished a 4-hour moto-pace sessson the day before.

My guess is no Andy at all. That still would be a conflict. Schleck cannot lower himself to race for Horner. Same formula as last year.
It will be interesting to see how he compares to Contador and Froome if he's fully protect as the GC man. He's smart enough to keep himself close and if the two mark each other....? Nibali will be spoiling for it to.

Who do you think will be the leader for Movistar? No big name there, so probably it'll be decided during the race?

There is a TTT this year no? If yes, I think Sky will get the win with radioshack second. Not sure which other teams have good time trialists in the race.

Blanco doesn't look bad to me.

Sky's team has a lot of climbers, so I'm not sure they can win it. I'd say OPQS, Radioshack, and Saxo have a good chance of taking it. BMC also doesn't look too bad.

I hope he is not riding 5 miles behind the peloton.:D:D Sure he might finish, but what the use of it if he is not in the mix with the rest of the peloton. He needs to get his confidence back too by riding in the middle of peloton.

I see some expectations related with Schleck here. They (expectations) look to me more like a reason and excuse for further mocking, than like a genuine interest.
It's obvious that his goal in T-A is just to ride the race. To be in the bunch and get some racing kilometers.
Not what we've been hoping for, but more than it looked like after the Tour Méditerranéen.

I'll be happy to praise Andy when he start performing. He might help Horner. Why not ?
Off course. He was a helper in races he raced so far, as reported. No reason to be different in T-A.

Rast is the odd man out.
