oh ok..thanks for that....
so that means he is a definite non-starter tonight??

Yes. The Tour de Suisse and Critérium du Dauphiné are the two major races of June. They overlap, so you do one of them, not both.

i’m gonna give my bets to berto but ultimately would love to see boom to win the prologue (i know, i know he’s not here :(). ..very curious about gusev’s 1st big show - he must be very motivated to prove himself. ultimately, I think samu will win the whole thing but not today. watch out for millar he had a long rest.

In a prologue?

So he can avoid training of any substance whatsoever for 2 months, and then just find form really quickly. If so his training patterns are horribly arranged and he doesn't peak in any meaningful sense whatsoever.

N.b (L)Eddy(L), but seriously, going and dominating the Vuelta, before winning the first of his 6 world championships would be far better for him.


There is absolutely no way a rider trains himself into form that quickly. He would be much better served building for the Vuelta. He hasn't reached top form once all season, so he would be extremely well rested for the Worlds.

Arriving at the Worlds so much more rested than anyone else on any other team = huge chance of winning, which he normally wouldn't have.

Contador has been doing a lot of 'expectation management' in the lead-up, so I expect him to smoke the field by 5+ seconds.
