If it doesn't rain for 9 days in Bergen it will be the 2nd time that happens in 150 years :surprised:

Nah, but first time since 2012 that this week havent had rain entire week .. And it looks like the orginizers are lucky, no rain expected and on Saturday for the start its forecasted Blue skies and sunny!.. REst of the week some clouds, but sunny! And most important 0 mm rain!! Beat that! :D

Proof: Go to yr.no search for bergen and press history, then press in the dates and see for urself..
 
Almost the team I predicted. I'd rather have Oss over Puccio, but they both have big engines and can work if required.
No need for a captain, we must put riders in every move and let Trentin/Colbrelli sit on Sagan/GVA's wheel in case they go for it in the finale. Viviani won't be protected, he'll sprint if he can survive till the finish and still have the legs (which I doubt).

Very slim chance of winning the race, but that's the best possible team.

After reading volume 5 of My Struggle, I refuse to believe that there are ever sunny days in Bergen.

I'm currently on volume 4, so I would'nt know.. (but I do)
Aye, at number 4 here too.
Well, you can look forward to a lot of rain and an unfortunate incident in Bjork's toilet. Seriously, though, they are all fantastic books. Book five is probably my least favorite of the five I have read. (I have not yet read the last volume.)

Omitting Marczyński for Poland is kind of weird as well.


Don't understand that either. People making selection are saying that he doesn't handle being a domestique very well, and causes problems and they are all in for Kwiatkowski.
Still, I would give him free role, make him tack on to the attacks in the final stages of the race. It's not like Poland is going to be setting the pace with just 6 riders and Marczynski and Majka not among them. Just not strong enough.
Thank god for Paterski. He will be there in the end to support Kwiato for sure. Bodnar should last for a long time as well

I think Juray will be there in the finale
Are you joking right? No way he can survive the hell that Belgium will make there. I think he won't be with Sagan already in round 7 or 8.
14 in Gent-Wevelgem!

I think he'll get dropped with two laps to go.

kolar and baska are decent riders, so peter will have some help in the first laps. But no doubt, he will be isolated by the end. Shame Peter velits retired, he would have been big help, he was a very good rider.

My biggest fear for Sagan in this race is that a small gap opens up on Salman Hill and he has others look to him to close it down. He needs a biggish group.

i really don't know why italy bring Puccio and not oss , please maybe because the sponsor of italian cycling team is THE SAME OF TEAM SKY?i guess yes
Yes.

That or Puccio being in frustratingly good form in the Vuelta, and Oss, while being strong, wasn't as prominent. I mean, I way prefer Oss but it's an understandable decision.

it's true it doesn't change nothing , in the end Sagan will win or other will made him lose
