He was given a chance to prove himself. I'd say he deserves a shot. Has J.J. Haedo done anything since going Pro Tour? I don't recall.

1. If you call last past at the Tour down under and DNF everywhere else a shot. next year he rolls to a win at the tour of the Bahamas! Kickin' it with a club team from Miami!

2. You bro, you must be living in an Alternate reality. JJ "the Argentinian Arrow" Haedo just opened a can of whoop *** on Jimmy Casper (remeber him) at Cholet - Pay de Loire and earlier this year put the hurt on his little bro in tour de San Luis....WHERE YOU AT!

Yeah, Ivan's having a rough season early on. He DNF at De Panne yesterday.

JJ has been okay with most of his wins coming in the States at Claifornia and Georgia. He did pull off a win a couple of weeks ago at GP Cholet-Pays de Loire, but hasn't really produced against the big time sprinters.

Do you consider beating Casper and winning a sprint in San Luis an achievement? You must put this things on perspective.
I don't think he will be kicked out, probably he still has another season. He is not a young talent anymore.

J.J. Haedo won the GP Cholet and the last stage of the Tour de San Louis recently along with stage wins in the Tours of San Louis, California, Georgia, Luxemebourg and Denmark in 2008.

His younger brother Sebastian looks pretty good as well and a Pro Tour team might look to give him a chance in the near future.

I'm putting it in total perspective! I'm talking about JJ not Tom Boonen!:)

Now you could say I've lost it if I start talking about Graeme Brown being the second coming just 'cause he's mopping up this year.

JJ is still a big disappointment from what was expected from him when CSC first signed him in 2007. He's a B or C class pro sprinter.
