Jamsque said:I agree that if Cav is there in the finale then it won't matter whether he has a lead-out or not, but after seeing videos of the course I'm really not sure he will be. He's going to have to be on really top form to get over those climbs without losing contact with the bunch, and since he has no team he'll have to just hope that other countries chase down the attacks that are sure to come.
Vonn Brinkman said:True, true. Cav needs two good guys who can get him over those climbs and make sure he stays with the bunch, like George Hincapie did at Milan San Remo 2009. I think that if Cav arrives with the bunch, he will win. He knows how to find a wheel and go at the right moment. Go Cav!
