Sometime 2012 seems most likely. :rolleyes:

In all seriousness, Cadel should be able to pick up a stage (at least) in the Giro. Three individual time-trials (one mountain) and a couple of punchy finishes that should suit Cadel more than a Pellizotti or a Sastre.

Fleche or liege imo. Or he will come very close there. I may sound like cav here but evans could go to some 2.1 grade race in the middle of timbuktoo and get a win but evans is a classy bike rider. He goes and wants and can win against the best.

Fist win will be Big George in a post season paintball tornament.

Cadel should have a shot at both Fleche and Liege, maybe moreso the latter because the finish suits him better, but those are two very tough races and it's easy to miss out even if you have the form. Romandie is a possibility, but Cali will be the Columbia and Shack show, I'd be surprised if BMC could get a word in edge-ways there. They'll nab something at the Giro, though, I'm sure.

I think you mean a 'Pereiro Victory' :rolleyes:
 
Ok, for you guys who voted that they won't win at all:

You can't honestly think they are going to go the entire season without a win, do you? Seriously, when is the last time a team did that? And you may dislike him, but do you really think a rider as strong as Cadel is going to go an entire season without a single win?

What you guys can't separate your dislike for Cadel/BMC from reason?
 
I actually voted that they will win at Cali/Romandie but now I am wondering who will take a victory at those races and............can I change me vote.

BMCs lack of success reflects the importance of having a half-decent sprinter on your team.
 
Ok, wait a second. BMC was a pro continental team last year. They were racing Gila and one or two Euro races when they could get an invite.

Sure, now they've added some pro caliber talent, but let's face it. They're still in the building phase. Cut these guys some slack. They're not quite where OPL is right now.

You're right.
He did win THREE times last year.
He only has to win 1/3 as much to justify his team!

Ballan won ONCE.
So he just has to stay status quo.

Hincapie (tee hee) won ONCE.
Ditto Ballan.

So...yeah...<yawn>...good luck bmcyalater!

Evans might win the la fleche.. he is a very good rider and its a good race for him so he has a chance.. I voted for romandie/california I think evans will win the tour of romandie and someone will get a stage win in the tour of california being an american team..they arte american arentt they?
 
I don't know what their chances are of winning a GT stage because we haven't really seen BMC commit riders to going in the early breaks. That is their real hopes as Cadel isn't as strong in the TT as he was before and they don't have a sprinter. I also can't see Cadel winning a MTF because there really isn't much evidence to show that he's suddenly going to start it at this point.

By the way, I'm pretty sure that BMC won't be taking part in Gila at all this year because of their Europe-heavy schedule.

are bmc riding romandie? I wasn't sure...

Also if evans does ride romandie I think it would be a little silly to go all out at romandie for the win. It's basically the warm up race for the giro, Menchov just cruised it last year. So yeah I don't see evans wasting energy at romandie to be honest, he'll have 3 tough weeks ahead of his as it is.

+1 agreed Timmy....if Cadel doesnt get a win this weekend ..then Romandie might be their first win this season..
