Also just thinking back a bit, if you were to write a comment like Netserk just did in the Contador-thread in peak LaFlorecita-times you could bet your ass you would be permabanned on this forum. But its totally acceptable to casually stroll into here and call Valverde cancerous

Whats up with that again?

Next up is Catalunya. Honestly, a very winnable race considering his form so far, the completion, the route (its an easy one). Looks like a rather bad race tbh - unless im reading this route wrong - but Valverde is a master on La Molina and in Barcelona, so this could still be very interesting..
Does anybody knows what's up with Bala? Is he going to be ready for Fleche/Liege? I didn't saw any news about him recently...

He had problems with sickness and allergies in Catalunya. But even without that, he would have taken a break before Flèche. Itzulia was never part of his schedule, I think. Without any race between Catalunya and Flèche, it's hard to guess where he stands form-wise, but I think if he has overcome his health issues, he should be in good shape.
