Thanks Bala for bringing to the fore this intriging "minor' race.
Here I am. If it makes you feel better, I will doubt this guy, too.issoisso said:So Damien Monier's just shown he's undergone the same transformation as Wiggins.
Of course, his power being lower, as shown by his TTs being worse than Wiggins', his climbing is not as good....but it's just as big a transformation....
Where are the doubters that were so quick to scoff Wiggins?

I suppose one could make that argument. It is not the case I am making.sherer said:who were the other riders on the Astana team for this race ? You could argue if he wasn't good enough to win on his own he didn't deserve the win

IMO, The strongest team Astana could have put into the Tour would have included Chris Horner. I'm suggesting that Horner was out to prove this very point. That he did not win the race may be important to fickle fans, but that he was second will not be lost on the good DS's.
