I would suppose Vaugrenard, Dumoulin, Modolo and even up-and-coming Marko Kump deserved more mentioning..... Well, thanks for the links anyway
Don't know if L.L. Sanchez would be much use to Valverde. As we've seen in Paris-Nice, they don't really work together, they're just on the same team. And last year L.L. Sanchez didn't look too good on the same climb which is also in this year's edition, the final of stage 4. Neither did Rodriguez, by the way.Moondance said:Nice win for him, I guess.... Why isn't he in the Basque Tour though?
Valverde looked strong yesterday, but was also isolated and didn't have much help when the going got tough. Valverde managed fine yesterday, but can he chase down Rodriguez, Gesink, Horner, Schlecks for 4 more days and then out TT them all? Doubt it. The Valverde-Sanchez doubleheaded monster would be tough to beat, secondly it would be better prep for the Ardenne i think.
