YEAHHHHHH. Here are the TT'ers. And what would happen if Wilco do the Van Garderen style in the TDF? i mean **** his own leader in the climbs and of course in the Itts. ?¿? Also i can see Kruivswijk more than one time stronger than Robert in the mountains. His 2011 Giro tell me that. The news is great.
Kelderman needs to have made a big step over the winter to be better than Gesink in the mountains. Kruijswijk is a different story. At any rate they'll be sending a team that is a gazillion times better than last year ;)

If Gesink turns out to be his former 2010-11 self he's the best GT rider on RabobankBlanco. Kruijswijk can try a De Gendt while the other favourites hesitate, but in most cases he'll be the super domestique. Concerning Kelderman I don't really expect much from his first GT. Maybe the TT's suit him, but he's just there to finish, maybe get in a break.

Still I wonder how Gesink will handle the Giro-Tour double(if this is the plan), history has taught us it isn't exactly the best preparation. :p

The Astana train will crush all resistance m8, stop dreaming
Kruijswijk is better than any domestique Nibbles might have at his disposal.

Hey Nibbles...
You will get the Nibali Gesink battle you always wanted

I cant wait, will be a bloodbath (im talking about the Nibali vs Gesink fan threads on here :D )

And Ryo explaining why they are both the most overated pathetic stupid, weak etc cyclists in history who only lucked out immensely to get such a weak field.

Brajkovic :confused: thought I heard he was Nibali's super domestique.
I've never seen Brajkovic ride like Kruijswijk in the final week of the Giro 2011.

Or maybe that 1 Dauphine...and yeah he finished 10th in the Tour last year which was awesome (it really was good!). But he didn't climb like Kruijswijk in that final week of giro 11

Froome at the Giro:confused:

the guy has made clear he would rather be a bottle carrier at the Tour. The rain and cold of the corsa rosa would make it an incredibly stupid way to waste his season.
Maybe he'll be forced to ride the Giro.
Besides bad weather, the route looks good for him.

There will probably be some Colombians at the start line, so Ryo will bite his own a$$ if he says that ;)

There have been some Nibali-Gesink battles before, always resulting in an epic Gesink crash, so I'm not holding my breath.

Still better in the Tour than Kruijswijk, both crashed and Jani did much better. Some experts(read it in some magazine) were saying Kruijswijk was still recovering from Giro-Vuelta in 2011 this year. Rabobank has really pushed this guy to his limits. He's imho nothing more than a super domestique with reasonable climbing and good recovery.

.
They will all be dismissed as having to work for someone else (the ds's of said teams will be denounced as idiots who ruin cycling)

If perchance a Colombiano gets to lead a team, they will be excused for being "very sick the last 2 weeks" and their results will be highlighted as above everyones expectations considering the illness , which will prove that they would have won easily without it.

Vincenzo Nibali, Joaquin Rodriguez, Robert Gesink, Sammy Sanchez, Ryder Hesjedal, Ivan Basso, Michele Scarponi, Domenico Pozzovivo, Franco Pellizotti, plus whichever Colombians show up. Gotta admit, the Giro fields is looking strong, should be a great race! :D

Also really glad the management of Blanco-Bank finally wised up and decided to send their best GC guy to a race where he could actually do well in.
