With the Vuelta in the future and the Tour ending I've stated thinking about who USPS is going to send as captain for the vuelta. I would love to see landis take a shot at a grand tour, I think he could do top 10 if not top 5 possibly. On the other hand, azevedo did a top five in the tour and has shown he can do some pretty nice things in the mountains and time trials. Plus it seems like many of the riders that dropped out, hamilton, mayo, heras, could make the vuelta as hotly contested as the tour. I heard hamilton say something like he was thinking of the vuelta. Of course heras won last year but I don't know if he just screwed up really badly in the tour or if he is having a bad year. Maybe saiz's no racing for a month before the tour, didn't work out quite right!
