    Paris-Nice 2007

    Well, looks like David Millar is back on form after the prologue - I wonder if he's got the form to keep it going in the leader's jersey until next weekend. Just hope that he's doing it without the juice...

    I realize there was quite a bit of debate leading up to this year's race, but I don't think they took out the climbs. Millar might hold the jersey one more day...

    Would be good to see someone from the Isles do some damage in Europe.

    It would be good to see him throw a tantrum at the top of some finishing climb.

    Too bad this is one of the easiest P-N routes I've seen in a long time.

    I like Millar as much as the next guy, but I'm also a realist. The climbs aren't severe, but he'll still lose time to the specialists. I didn't mind seeing him win the prologue.

    Which "Isle"? Hong Kong or Malta?

    Seriously - not to be rude, but you're joking, right?

    Sorry, but I find it difficult to support David Millar.

    I could care less about his doping BS. I didn't like him before.

    Fair enough - didn't expect him to have too many fans. I think he has wasted much of his career with the drugs and its a shame, as much as any pro rider who's done it. Still, I think that the guy is talented and deserves a second chance - I'll be cheering him on.

    Can't recall him throwing a tantrum before - my memory is a bit rusty on this. Care to share or are you just saying?

    I don't think Millar will survive. I think it's going to come down to Contador, Levi, Luis Sanchez, Bobby Julich and Cadel Evans. All of these guys had pretty good prologues, and they can climb. Contador is just flying!! I am happy for David Millar.

    He doesn't have legs like Boonen so I don't really care much for Millar.

    I'm sure there are plenty of guys in the field who could easily take Millar down, but who knows what sort of form he can produce... Still too early to pick a winner, though - have to wait until the road starts heading uphill, despite the lack of serious climbs.

    like i was trying to write - i didn't like him before the EPO, so it;s not about 2nd chances.

    Correct, but right good drama! I remember two things off hand about the 2004 Vuelta - Heras repeats as part of a different team (he was stripped of his 2005 title but the 2004 title still holds), and DM's tantrum.

    2007 Paris-Nice will be remembered as the one that almost wasn't. It needs some good juicy misbehaving by someone.
