Cycling is very predictable sport, all about watts and weight, simple facts are that Pinot's team are not strong enough, even if he is. In the mountains he will be isolated very early on and the other favorites will smell blood, he will be wide open to attacks. Untill he moves from his team he ain't going to win a Grand Tour.nelsonsmen71 said:LMAO!!!! Peaked too early, the worst statement ive ever heard!!! Peaked too early stage 1 comedy brilliant!!!! Pinot will win the TDF 2015, people on this forum are very bad sporting analysts, they forget 2 important things 1 that sport is always more open than it ever looks anyone can on their day beat anyone with the right forces and 2 in the TDF , the maillot jaune has mystical powers. It makes riders perform 10,20 even 30% better than their form suggests and that despite being a team that should lose 1 or even 2 mins in a ttt when they are riding for and with a rider who they know has the TDF in his grasp they will out perform , the greatest team performance in any sport is in cycling and it is the 2008 Carlos Sastre team win under Bjarne Riis Team SaxoBank, Carlos was never rated by anyone, i seemed to be the only one , but he did it and they did it, no sport should be under estimated or a team or person, anyone can beat anyone. This forum should learn that philosphy. Pinot can win this TDF , right here right now lolRamon Koran said:He seems to have peeked way to erly on in the race, has no temates to help him out in the montains, expect him to fade week 2 onwards finishing around 10-15.
