Who's your pic for Paris-Nice?

Mattan seemed strong today although I think he'll fade after some of the larger climbs...

Vandenbroucke and Frigo looked to be going well...those are my 2 pics.

Maybe a Hamilton if he stays clear of bad luck and crashes...

anyone else?

Tyler Hamilton can outclimb VDB and Frigo! If he makes it without crashing he could win.

Remember it is 9:30AM (EST). Those of us on the west coast get to eat breakfast to the first part of each stage every morning

The Vuelta they replayed in the evening and in the middle of the night last year. The should do that with all races so I do not have to record it in the morning (my VCR sucks).

I might be a little wrong about Hamilton! (too early in the season) and am changing my pick to Alex V. Ty lost 6:50 today.
