I love the way cav is playing this down saying he has no chance but there are no major climbs so I expect tim to hit the front with 50m to go. Allez sky! They have learnt their lesson from the olympics.

Cav won't be at the front with 50km to go, Expect to see him dropped with around 75km to go Wink

Climb 5, its not hugely steep overall, but there are hard parts and its a 3km climb......Cav will be done for

Why is LL Sanchez not racing - is he injured ?

Thought he would be a cert for this type of race. Thinking

I don't think he's injured. But Contador, Valverde, SS, Freire and J-Rod are there. Do the Spanish need another leader/contender?

I know what you mean but three of them have just kicked merry hell out of each other in the Vuelta and looking at Bertie in the TT he did not seem "in form".

Sammy looked good in the ToB but he wasn't up against much competition.

I watched most of it on Eurosport while the F1 was on and then the highlights of the rest of the races on BBC1.

Interesting to note that Tony Martin was spinning a 58/11 in the TT. I used to spin a 65/80 chainrings on a recumbent, but thats a totally different thing to a road bike.

I have a slightly biased team towards la pell de brau Wink

Also, on the Cav subject, even if he could get all the way round the course and do the 10 laps.....He's still got to finish up the Cauberg. 1.5km with a maximum gradient of 12%. The finish is only about a mile from there. NOT going to happen for him Wink

Gone slightly off side with my team. Not the usual suspects but we will wait and see.

Rui Alberto Faria Da Costa
Peter Sagan
Tom Boonen
Edvald Boasson Hagen
Lars Petter Nordhaug
Alexandr Kolobnev
Moreno Moser
Vasil Kiryienka
Jon Tiernan-Locke

Thought about Gerrans and Gilbert but as i said earlier 6 into 4 dosn't go.

Edit: Take it back JTL in the break with Cummings nice!

If thats correct i've got 2,11,12,14,19 and 20. Not bad 6 out of 9 scoring. I dont think it will be enough to win the stage though.
