Even tho I hope he won't do the Tour,I dont know what should be his goal?
3rd again (due to TT and cobbles he practicaly doesnt stand a chance against Froome and Contador even in his best form) or stages?I would like polka dot,but thats not realistic.
ASO desperately needs to create action in polka dot competition:eek:,new point system,better prize money or something, but they have to motivate riders.
If his goal is to win a grand tour then riding the entire TdF would be a mistake. It certainly would put him at a disadvantage against his Vuelta gc rivals.

Interesting news. Purito will take TDF
...and you folow that sentence with a link to Ekimov saying the Tour can't be completely excluded? :confused:

Yesterday Joaquim gave a short interview to Cadena Ser. Says he doesn't see how he could possibly be in form for the Tour, it's too soon after the Giro and he's been in good form for very long already

I think we could have an epic battle between SKY and Tinkoff this July, with Rogers in this form it could get messy. :p

I recall Contador winning one race earlier this year but I have not seen (or I missed) any news on his preparation for the TdF. Will he be riding any races before the TdF?
If not I suspect he will fare poorly.

I tried searching on the Tinkoff Team website but it requires signing in and I refuse to provide personal data.

he'll do Dauphine as usual I guess. And he has won Tirreno and Basque this year :p

Critérium du Dauphiné is his next race as far as I know. Anything besides that I don´t know.

Vino attacks everyone said:
Uran has worked with Spesialized over the winter on his tt... AC to? :D
Froome thinking right now: "If Uran worked with Specialized and did such a good TT, then what can Bertie do in the TDF?" Actually, DB thinking this for Froome :D
 
Rafa is rocking it :) Great ITT by him and he has looked good on the climbs to date. More pressure off Alberto as others on the team do well!

Tinkoff just might get what he asked the team for; a stage win and a podium!

Go Rafa :)
