Andy Schleck of Team Saxo Bank!

And to think that only last week Secret Squirrel thought Team Saxo Bank might not win anything at the classics. It only goes to show that a weekend is a long time in bike racing. Let's also not forget David Rebellin who gets the best supporting soulful stare by the man who came third award.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

Ahem, Tony, I said...

7. Outside of Schleck, Saxo Bank (CSC) have had a mare. What has happened to 2008's team-of-the-year?

So technically this was a prediction of his impending win!

I thank you...
