I'm not a GH hater, but come on.

He simply doesn't have the track record to be considered anything more than an outside contender.

Yeah, and when was the last time you saw a guy from Saunier Duval/Prodir in the top 20 of P-R?

If we're going to predict his results based on his equipment and not his legs, I'd go with a Trek or a Giant over a Scott, any day.
