If he has anything close to the form he showed during classics season, I can't see anyone beating Cancellara
I think Stomach Flu is in with a good chance to take the win from Cance, I reckon it'll be about 50-50 between Cance and Stomach Flu

Now that Cancellara has been struck by illness, Dumoulin will probably win, but it will be an asterisked victory

All your posts are asterisked posts in my mind though. :p

Pretty sure it doesn't make it an asterisked win simply because another favourite was sick. Damn bad lack for the sick guy, yes, but nothing that means the guy who ended up winning didn't actually earn it.

no, i'm pretty sure that the uci officials put an asterisk when this happens.

I can confirm this. They only do it when it happens between April 21st and May 16th though.

Bummer news about Fabian......Big Tommy D is now my pick to wear the Maglia Rosa at the start of stage 2.

Not to be confused with that other Tommy D ;)
Just call him Major Tom or Tom Dumoulin.

I'm not so sure about Dumoulin winning if Cancellara is still ill. The course is really easy and very fast. I think it doesn't suit him at all.
Could be a surprise winner... a former trackie or something. I'll hope for van Emden or Dumoulin.. .for obvious reasons.

If Landa finishes ahead Tom Dumoulin (he starts 1min after), then I say it's a good ride. But if Dumoulin finish behind Landa, then he probably won't win the stage
