I won't get my hopes up, though I do wish him the very best. Personally I'd rather he spread himself over a few more races. His list of victories proper is much too short when compared with the impact he's actually had over the years.auscyclefan94 said:
Good win for him yesterday to secure the Overall. The tour is imo out of reach for Cadel. He is a very good rider but cannot match the explosiveness of Schlecklet, or possibly Gesink, come the mountains. If Contador is there as well then that is an additional problem for Cadel. He will also have an on form Basso to contend with in the mountains as well as Sammy Sanchez.NickBVK said:I'd say he'll take the foot off the gas a bit now that he has the win off his back. Definitely can go into the TDF more relaxed having a win.
He'll also def go for an Ardennes but won't have to kill himself in Catalunya etc.
No Pais Vasco and no Romandie? Has he changed his schedule?auscyclefan94 said:

Giro Del Friuli
Monte Paschi Eroica
Probably right, but if he wins any more classics before July, he might not care. Nor will those who wish him well.maltiv said:Evans will come to the TDF exhausted with this schedule if he is trying to win every race he enters like we saw in T-A.
Isn't that forbbiden in this forum?biopass said:No one thinks he can match the accelerations by the likes of clenboy and Andy. But unless they do their tango in july, Andy wont set a pace that cracks his own brother. And when Andy wont drop his own brother, a chasing group of outsiders with the likes of Evans, Basso, Sanchez and Gesink will be right behind them.
Archibald, you should be honoured that my 10,000th post is quoting you. I like to see some emotion, it shows how much it means to the rider and shows they are human. It is real and raw and after someone who has been riding for 6 hours and takes a victory, they are at their most vulnerable state. This is real emotion and not some charade.Archibald said:nice to see him not crying on a podium for a change
