agreed. Folks here aren't considering how "technical" are the "flattish" TT routes-not in Wiggo's advantage at all-plus he doesn't have Porte & Rogers as engines for the TTT- & the Uphill ITT will be very tight....Dekker_Tifosi said:2'30 thereabouts
Around this i think, i actually voted 1-2 minutes because i thought this was just for the flat ITT but with everything there 2:30 max imo.Dekker_Tifosi said:2'30 thereabouts
based on what?williamp78 said:I was going to ask why is Nibali targeting the Giro this year given le tour really suits him better but I suppose its his home race etc etc.
I don't know, but I suspect Cannondale wanted him to.williamp78 said:But why then did he target the tour last year when the giro really suited him better?

Jesus Christ, almost 7 w/kg for over an hour... why can't he produce that in a regular mountain stage? He'll beat everyone by minutes.jens_attacks said:1 Bradley Wiggins (GBr) Sky Procycling (1.9,69) 1:04:13 479 watts - 6.95 w/kg

i don't know why, but i expect him to go at least as strong. we'll see if maybe vincenzo improved.
