Watching at the mo. Could be a good indication of form for Paris-Nice, perhaps more than Tour of Oman.

Boasson Hagen wins! So Sky had a good day in the end.

Aye watched it earlier, EBH looked good considering he had to do it all on his own.

Might be worth a spare penny or two with the bookies for the classics  39

I have to say though the coverage is much better live than Oman 24hrs later.

The question arises again.. What kind of rider is EBH?

The last two years he has been struggling with injury during the classics..

Can he be the next Cancellara? The next Kelly? Just wondering..

Personally i think he is a mixture of both. He can TT with the best of them and puts in a decent sprint, especially on an uphill / rising finish.

He's possibly to big physique wise to conquer the high mountains so a grand tour seems out of his reach but something like Paris Nice is a defo.  39

Paris-Nice might be a bit difficult with the uphill TT at the end. It's similar in profile to Old Willunga Hill (a bit harder actually) on which he was 6th. I'd expect him to be up near the leaders though and will probably have him in my team.
