I'll lay odds the Vuelta does it before the Giro.

Vuelta should do it in N. Africa.

Odds of the Giro coming here? Almost zero. Riders would rebel!

So they have to fly 20 teams, staff, gear, team cars and team busses across the Atlantic. They would probably only need 10 of these, we have them here @ Stewart AFB (right next to OC Chopper World Headquarters):





No biggie.

lolz, i think someone needs to hold a crit course going through disney land if we are going to start talking about stuff that probably won't happen

we all know that it would be the $hit to ride through that and hit up the cobbles and whatnot...

no way all those strange skinny, high strung, foreigners with odd tan lines will make it past the scrutiny of our expert flock of TSA personnel.

...or maybe they will.

Doubtful...the riders would be too jetlagged to race for the next few days (at least I would be).

Any bets on which thread has more legs: The original one or the Pcad parallel thread? My money is on Pcad.
