in one word YES, this is just one of those articles that just plays to the average Joe that thinks that there is only one race a year. They have Cadel down as being inconsistant, which is totally wrong because the one thing Cadel is is consistant. He always buts in a good showing in the Hilly Classics like Fleche Wallone and Leige-Bastogne-Leige and then stays quiet until July. The ToC was good to see guys like Rogers where there or there about but the Favourites for the TdF will be quiet for another couple of months yet. Though Paris-Nice will be intresting to see how Conatdor goes and i think Cadel will be there. Not sure about Rogers but if his there then its another good performance that will get Stapleton thinking GC in July.

I meant that everyone exactly where they want to be right now, later in the year people will start falling of bikes or getting strains and then it becomes intresting. Still its going to be a great July and i cant wait (ohh yeah the OH is due then aswell :shock: )

I need some wisdom teeth out. I'm trying to plan the surgery (and week off) with the last week of the tour :) If you have to take sick leave, you may as well stay up late and then watch the replays all day.

noice one ^^^^^

Its a bonus being in the west that it doesn't kill you too badly for lack of sleep. The downside is that we miss a huge chunk of the start[/quote[/quote]
