    Do you actually watch or participate in bike races?

    put merckx in that situation and he would have won...

    my statement was partly a joke.. yes a team can dominate the race like in 2001...

    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.

    an outside contender is fine with me. its more fun to root for the underdogs anyway.
