Sasquatch said:Why have they made most these finishes uphill anyway?
Libertine Seguros said:Since they're trying to manufacture a Cancellara win, they had to neutralise most of the high mountains they used until a few years ago, but they want to provide entertainment somehow, so avoiding boredom sprints is a good idea.
The dual leadership has changed from Nibali-Kreuziger to Basso-Kreuziger. I don't think this makes much of a difference to Kreuziger.Jamsque said:I wonder how young Roman feels about Basso's sudden decision to chase the Giro-Tour double?

Sasquatch said:Liquigas need to ride for Kreuziger in July. They also need to leave Bennati behind and bring in Chicchi, who has the ability to match and beat Cav. Bennati doesn't anymore.
Jamsque said:At the start of the season it seemed like Liquigas were saying that they were supporting Basso/Pellizotti for the Giro and Kreuziger/Nibali for the TdF. Obviously Pellizotti's suspension changed things slightly, but it does sort of seem like Basso appointed himself TdF captain.
