Remco's closer to Cavendish than Levi. Levi could go to twig thin with no butt.
I actually went to check height/weight for Remco and Levi after I posted that... almost identical. Levi also a good TT:er and won plenty of one-week races, but in Grand Tours couldnt match the best. "Just" came close a couple of times.

Cavendish not so much imo. Both slightly taller and weighs more.

It's indeed Leipheimer! I hesitated to say it yesterday, but you're absolutely right!

Also, when is his first race? Is it San Juan?
Seems there is much less hype about remco and his spring programme compared with this time last year. Maybe he is not a big name anymore.

But that's probably good for remco, he can do nice comprehensive training in a relaxed environment away from medias. Right now he's in Costa del sol training at sea level.

Hopefully we could see him at some new races. Paris-Nice, Sanremo, Flanders, Amstel. He always attack. And he will defend his title in liege Bastogne .

I had one source saying his first race would be Algarve, but someone told me that was actually never confirmed. Landa is doing Algarve.
