Along with Contador and Leipheimer, I think he's the strongest allround TT-er. But Menchov is a bit inconsistent, whereas the other two can always be counted upon to do a good TT, even if the form seems to be slightly off.karlboss said:Noone for Menchov, he won the toughest TT last year.
dsut4392 said:I like the dodger, but why single out '03? He hasn't been the same since crashing out of the Tour as leader on the road, the year Puerto and Freiburg went down...
timmers said:Exactly so possibly he has been clean but remember he is Australian with very strong Italian ties.
Zabeskie is an American who has had two o rso good rides in his life!! How dodgy is that!

If Contador, Menchov, Leipheimer, Millar etc. would do the same as Larsson--that is: only going full gas in the TTs and taking it easy for the rest of the season--they'd more than equalled his track record.El Oso said:IMO too inconsistant. But then again I'm still bitter about him losing over 6 minutes in the first TT of the 06 Tour (I picked him to win that year)
I love DZ, my favourite rider, and while he has dominated the U.S. TT championships and has one 2 GT TT's (essentially 3 since his Vuelta stage win was a long solo breakaway), with podium finishes at worlds, but NO.
Best I can come up with is Larsson with his silver to Cancellara's dominating performances in the Olympics and Worlds.
After that I guess Contador.
Menchov is pretty solid and I'd have Levi followed by Evan's just below him.
Millar is too inconsistant. Wigan isn't as good at TT's as pursuing.
Maybe in a few years Martin will be the heir to Cancellara's throne?
