Some great pics of the "red devils"
stefrees said:dont you think your a bit one eyed? when are bmc going to challenge until we get to the first classic? then there will be a fair few teams up for it, quickstep, saxo bank, cervelo, silence, columbia, sky to name a few
karlboss said:just watched the finish, great positioning by sky, HTC messed it up. Watching griepel come back once he was passed doesn't bode well for other sprinters.

I think with the cobbled classics BMC will be a team to beat. Ballan, Hincapie and Burghardt will be able to work as a strong team.

shape of things to come i guess..

bianchigirl said:+1 a bit of perspective never goes amiss. Sky achieved their aim to stick it to Columbia in this 'big race' - that they achieved - after all, zipping round short circuits for 50kms isn't so very different to the track. Be interesting to see how they cope after 200+ kms on a varied parcours with the real big hitters all present and correct and up for it.
Bet Cavendish is kicking himself that he didn't sign for Sky - after all, what's a M-SR win when compare to the Down Under Cancer Council Classic
Biscuit said:I can't decide if this repeated sentiment is cos of bitterness about Sky or a bit of a pash going on for Cav. Either way you may need to let it go otherwise i suspect you're going to be proper fed up this season
