Bit harsh on Cadel putting him in that group, I also don't want to see Basso listed there either but sadly his time is running out, perhaps one showing in a gt later this year will show us if he should go on to 2014.movingtarget said:Yep. Vino and Menchov did the right thing, Basso, Kloeden, Horner and Evans can't be far away. Maybe one more season for Cadel.
Maybe but I can't see Evans racing in 2015 and he will probably have lost a few more percentage points by then. Still a great competitor.The Principal Sheep said:Bit harsh on Cadel putting him in that group, I also don't want to see Basso listed there either but sadly his time is running out, perhaps one showing in a gt later this year will show us if he should go on to 2014.
Nice job indeed ! Klodi might get some new ambitions with that? What's next for him, TDS ?gregrowlerson said:Good result for Klodi last night in Belgium; 4th on the stage and 4th overall. Life in those old legs yet!
Cadel Evans claims that the worst position a cyclist can finish is fourth; but all Klodists know that the worst position is really eleventh
Klöden's been time trialing well for years, apart from the last couple of ones. He meant Contador.Bavarianrider said:
2004: 3rd in both TTes
and he used last year's TdF to prepare for?HCl+HN03 said:Correct me, if I am wrong, but I belive that Klöden in the last seasons has used the preparation-race to train instead of going for a good result. It might be the case in Switzerland this year too.
I think the answer to that is obvious:Dazed and Confused said:and he used last year's TdF to prepare for?
