http://www.radioshackleopardtrek.com/Kišerlovski: "I felt really good during the prologue. We worked really hard on the Sierra Nevada in our training camp. Our team coach Josu Larrazabal was there with Tiago (Machado), George (Bennett), Nelson (Oliveira) and myself. We had our soigneur there, plus a mechanic. We were all there to prepare for the Giro. I like this professionalism and I felt that I cannot let the team down after all the trust and support I’ve received.”"I'm very happy with this result, especially because I'm not yet 100 percent. There is still some progression to be made. I need this race to be 100 percent for the Giro. This is certainly a boost to my confidence and the motivation is really high!”
Did you watch what happen to Sir Wiggo in Trentino? That was a 4-day race, right?IndianCyclist said:I have changed my vote to Wiggins. I think he has the form to stick with Nibali in the mountains. He will gain enough in the TTs. Plus his motivation would be high to win in order to avenge his loss in Trentino. I was more concerned that he did not have enough motivation and he was keeping something in reserve for the Tour. He should change his goal to the Vuelta.
Do you realize how many inverse arguments anyone has if we start discusing?cineteq said:Did you watch what happen to Sir Wiggo in Trentino? That was a 4-day race, right?
There was no Pantani in the '99 Tour. I think you meant the '99 Giroairstream said:If Nibali or Hesjedal win the Giro with adequately prepared Wiggins, it would be a real heroic mountain feat which is comparable to Pantani in the 1999 Tour.
Does that mean that you think Nibali is a stronger climber than Wiggo?airstream said:Do you realize how many inverse arguments anyone has if we start discusing?
Seriously, I think Wiggins could have lost not more than 40 sec in case he hadn't a mechanical. He had no teammates at the 10 km 9.5(?)% climb. Very decent perfomance imo

Romandie <> Giro. He could surprise, I guess, but I had to stop somewhere. I did check the odds on Betfair to remove any ridiculous bias on my part ...and they weren't that great, similar to Intxausti's.Albona said:
Yes, typo. The 1998 Tour, surely.Netserk said:There was no Pantani in the '99 Tour. I think you meant the '99 Giro
Nibali was a better climber at Trentino, but I expect Wiggins to be a better climber in the Giro. Wiggins was quite convincing at Trentino. His cool-headed defense at 1st mountain stage was very tellingDoes that mean that you think Nibali is a stronger climber than Wiggo?
