He's become pretty unpredictable. Last year in the queen stage of the Vuelta he was dropped from a group of 30 riders. This year in the queen stage in Catalunya he got 5th. Betting on him for a podium does indeed seem quite premature.Timmy-loves-Rabo said:What I've seen from Gesink in the past 2 years, I am surprised he is even mentioned in the poll. He doesn't look like a climber at all. And he just doesn't seem like the fighter he once was.
Happy for him to prove me wrong, but I'm not holding my breath
If you look at how seriously Wiggo approached the Giro del Trentino, I think Vino is wrong.JRanton said:Vino thinks Wiggins is using the Giro as preparation for the Tour and that he isn't a serious contender. He lists Scarponi, Hesjedal and Gesink as the main challengers to Nibali.
