goggalor said:Hushovd gets crushed by another of former leadout man. He looked sloooow today. If he doesn't up his game I think Ale Jet will steal the green. Tho he was probably tired from yesterday.
Petacchi gives a good post stage interview. Talking about getting a good massage on the cobbles yesterday and being prepared to eat some bar tape to get over the mountains.
Hushovd didn't look too good in stage 1 either. He doesn't have his form back.
A question about Petacchi: when did he finish his last GT? I know he won the points jersey in the Giro and the Vuelta, but that's quite a few years ago. He dropped out of the Giro last year. Will he be motivated by the possibility of Green to drag himself over the Alpes and Pyrenees?
