    MSR... the picks

    Digging that cycling.tv is covering this for North America. Hope it's Backstedt in the commentary.

    I'm diggin on Haussler right now. How long can he hold form? And if he wasn't at peak already, cripes... what else will he be a major player at?

    Why don't you think Lance is going to win? Are you a Lance hater?

    An Australian (inc Haussler). Yes I'm parochial, but there are 5 or six of them easily capable of a top 10. Or Tyler Farrar. He goes alright. I'm avoiding tipping Boonen or Petacchi because every man and his dog will pick them.

    Cavendish will get dropped on the Poggio or will be too far back coming off it - 300km will be too far for him at this stage of his career IMO. Maybe in a year or two.

    That was the one that got away for Argentin. Kelly was a desperado when he smelt a win. Argentin was the strongest, but he was out-bluffed by the master.

    Nah, he'll lose ground on the Capo Berto, Capo Mele and the Capo other one I can never remember.

    Boonen from a group of 40.
    It's desperation time settling in at MSR. He wants to retire at 30 and he's already 28.

    Boy, people sure do love to hate Cavendish around here! I agree, he won't win it this year, nor next year. It might happen someday, though.

    CrimsonKarter, Haussler is Australian and German.

    And he won't win it this year, either.

    I don't care much for Cav because I think he's whiny.
    As far as Boonen, I could take him or leave him in a race.
    I like McEwen.

    farrar's results in tirreno adriatico have gotten him some respect on unibet.

    my guess is bennati. a lot of the teams have two or more leaders, so anything that gets away on the poggio could get brought in by chavanel/langeveld types.

    outsiders - nibali, rodriguez, and rebellin if they can stick something special on the climb.

    rooting for - hesjedal and lokvist

    damn, this is going to be a good race.

    With Tintin, only a small break gives him a chance.
    And even then, 2nd seems to be his m.o.

    Definitely agree here. The field is full of possible winners, many who have already shown great form in the opening races of the season.

    I'll agree that as a Classic, MSR doesn't have that all day slogfest that we get from other great races, but it has the most intense final hour of racing anywhere. I can't even imagine the jangled nerves heading for the Cipressa.
