    Rund Um Koln

    Haedo beats Petacchi. The man is immensely powerful. Will be very cool to see him in the mix at Le Tour.

    While JJ is a stud, Ale-Jet is more like Ale-Turboprop these days.

    I'd be surprised if he's in the Tour team. If he is it will only be to ride the first 7 days or so.

    No team does that anymore. The tour is too immense these days to let your young talent, "get their feet wet" at the world's biggest race.

    It wasn't long ago, that teams would bring in young guys like Lance to "experience" the first 10-14 days and then they'd pull them, in order to keep 'em fresh.

    The world has changed, so if Haedo gets picked for the Tour, it will be to get a result in the first week and then drive on the front for Sastre/Schleck until the end.

    Very doubtful though on his getting picked.

    Good point. I hadn't thought of that. Without any real GC threat you'd think CSC might go for stages, though. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to watch the development of this promising rider.

    Pre-race: that's a bit wrong.

    Post-race: probably understandable.

    Robbie McEwen is the opposite. He is dead serious before a race that he knows he can win, but afterwards is very friendly (granted he won )

    RM is a joker all the time. Just uber-professional when he needs to be.

    He's my favorite sprinter to watch. He's cocky but can back it up... I especially like his ability to appear out of nowhere in the last 500m.

    Last 50m is more like it.

    Ony bloke I've seen that can wind it up faster on the road is Jay Sweet.

    Respect.
