oh yes i remember watching that, I think that was his best result. Got any thoughts on who from BMC can get a win from romandie or the giro. And when is the strade bianche stage?
Stage 5 is the strade bianche stage. Ballan has a good chance there. Stage 1 and two look good for cadel but I doubt he'll win the overall. He hasn't raced for over a month.

I hope ballan finally gets his first win this year. But evans always seems in good form. DO you think phinney has a chance for the TT. I surely expect to see mauro, ivan and johann in the giro breaks

Ivan's not riding. Phinney has a good chance in the opening tt as it's only 3.5km though he may not have form. They have rode well in tour de suisse last year. Lets hope they do well in romandie.

we better take this discussion to the giro and romandie threads:p

TGAK is actually dominating my PCM career :p
LOL HOW? He can hardly sprint. Only 70. And he totally can't handle hills, danilo wyss is much better and versatile.

This PR-piece is supposed to be like Planet Armstrong?

I hope they will replace the host, though. That guy was unbearable.

I'm not sure if this has been reported somewhere, I'm not even sure I heard the announcers correctly today, but I think Thierry Adam of France 3 said today that Omega Pharma and Lotto will go seperate ways at the end of the season

That's what you would expect but they didn't explicitly say that. Again it could be that I completely misheard though ...

A new climb for the Giro:

According to cyclim'actu.net Zomegnan wants to integrate the "Stentaria" climb, not far from Zoncolan. This climb is 10,5 km with an average of 16% and a final part of 28%. So far it has not been used because there is not a fully asphalted road, but it could be on the menu in two or 3 years.

:rolleyes:
