Comes down to the decision whether Highroad thinks he should use a lot of energy for Cavendish or actually saving it.

After watching his performance in all of his major TTs n the last seasons I realy believe that tony martin is going to be the winner of this year's tour TT.

He is better TTer than contador and only loses to fabian in this discipline, but unlike both TM and AC, fabian isn't here in top shape, the tour isn't his big goal.

he will have to work a lot for both brothers and will get there really tired and, since i believe that his recovery isn't at contador's level, it isn't unlikely that he can really lose to one of them or even both.
still, when in good shape he can murder them in a TT without three hard weeks as "warm-up".

it would be fun to see a tour-oriented cancellara putting 2min or more in contador in a long TT and 8min in j-rod :)

that has never stopped Spartacus blitzing the competition at the tour in the past ;)

So you believe worse conditions give Martin a push in performance. Interesting. Must be pure willpower that makes him go faster when it raines. ;)

The later riders also had to put up with the wet descents and the wind was stronger in the later stages.

Wiggins could have beaten him yesterday - that is why Wiggo chucked his toys out with Sean Yates.

Canc and Wiggo both have him well beaten on style in any case - he is a horrible gear-mashing rouleur aesthetically.

Just to let you know, water pokemon are totally useless on land :eek:

But he's still a magicarp. Didn't you see his splash attack yesterday in the TT?

The tt yesterday was wet! It was more like a hydro pump attack than a splash attack (now I am really showing how much of a nerd I am)!

Gyarados can use earthquake which would screw up any electric Pokemon.
Ah yes :p But Raichu's speed >>> Gyarados speed + Thunder is a fast attack(even though accuracy is only 90(but you won't miss a lot wiht 90)) and Gyarados is scre-hu-wed
