Tour Down Under


Spain's Luis Sanchez takes Stage 3 and the yellow jersey

Sanchez is touted as the next Miguel Indurain. This is the first I've heard of him but I am already eager to see what he can do this year.

I'd like to know what people think of Sanchez. Not just his performance today and in his country's TT championships last year (or when he beat Mayo in a TT in a Spanish race - can't recall the name), but his future. People are already comparing him to Miguel Indurain and he's already 21. Cunego is 23, has won the Giro and Lombardia as well as a lot of smaller Italian races, and nobody is comparing him to Fausto Coppi or Pantani just yet, so it's rather interesting.

I knew nothing of him, until today and will keep my eyes on any news regarding his performances... That's damn mighty praise to regard him as a future Indurain... Thanks....

I predict he will be the first Luis Sanchez. Never heard of the guy till today, but if he can time trial, he'll make a good living.
