Jungles is savage :lol:
Amazing that a guy of 23 can already be bald. He should just shave it all off.

LOL. Although my friends have told me that it's a Spanish trait (balding) and a high percentage of Spanish males do go bald, it does that 23 is just a bit young for it.

Have you ever heard the legend of the Leipheimer?
Oh god, I had forgot Levi existed. The hate on this forum for him. :D

Will be interesting to see how he performs in Catalunya. He won't win that race, but he could potentially win Pais VascoI think.
 
Bad day for him but only his second outing of the season. Most other guys are already in their third or even fourth stage race of the year so I kind of expected that he may be a little behind their form. I had hoped for more but this is not a surprise if we are honest. He took a very slow approach to the year and that shows at the moment. But I don't mind if that results in better form come July. :)

I think he looked decent for this early in the season. Still building form. -- Probably a wise approach.

Like I said. In general 13th place is not the goal but when we are comparing a guy in his second race with opponents who have more than double or even triple his days in the saddle then it's actually pretty good. He is not far off even though he simply can't have the form (yet). And yes, I also like this slow approach. No sense hitting on all cylinders in March when your main goal is the Tour.
 
I'm not concerned yet. He doesn't have his kick yet. I was happy he finished where he did, considering he was on the wrong end of the split with Valverde, but made it back up to the 2nd group with Pinot, Bardet, and Zakirin. Last year he didn't do anything in Catalunya either then Pais Vasco was his break out. Remember that The Great One never officially won the Volta either.

Underwhelming performance today, to say the least. He'll probably be far behind going into the 3rd week of Le Tour.
Yes, I'm a little surprised. Looks nowhere near his GT form from last year. Maybe something's up . . . illness, maybe, who knows.
 
On Twitter he just said that he felt good the whole day but after a long period of not racing he is not at 100% yet. So he does not sound too concerned. Last race was LBL in April ...

Pretty poor performance in a very weak Suisse field. But I guess he still has time for the TDF.
The problem is not Suisse.
The problem is that his level has been very consistent (ie nothing more than decent) throughout the whole season. It's a pity because with Froome and Dumoulin injured the race could be wide open.
 
Mas seems to be a diesel climber who is at his best when everyone is tired. Lets see if thats the case again in the Tour and he suddenly comes from nowhere in the last week. Otherwise, he looks very ordinary..

I think he can make a good jump in form quite quickly. Last year he went from 44th in Catalunya or something like that to 4th and a stage win in Pais Vasco 2 weeks later.
