It seem's that Dave has fallen asleep at the wheel of Road.cc.....You have to remember he's a busy man lately with all these site changes.

The fantasy team got an email yesterday that he was going to open it. I'm sure it will be open today (9/10/13 incase you are in a different time zone) Devil

Not really looked at this race, seems to be:

1 - flat
2 - hilly ending in flat
3 - hilly with a descent finish
4 - hilly with a summit finish
5 - crit style sprint finish

Mixed bag of riders including the current World Champ, some good sprinters and a load of total randoms. Should be an interesting few days.

Anyone got any hot tips?

Funny - I had both of them in mind too, and have ended up with one in purist and the other in standard.
Its a bugger to pick for - difficult to know who's on form and who gives a monkey's. Shame there's no TT with so many good TTers in the line-up, I thought they'd bring it back after last year, makes sense to me so soon after the Worlds.

Think this is Flecha's last race as a pro. Will he want to go out with a bang, or take it easy knowing he's no longer in the shop window?

I have no idea.

Now Porte - he wants to lead Sky's Giro team next year. So will he want to prove his credibility here? Or did Paris-Nice already prove it?

I have no idea.
