gilbert is only going to get better! boonen seems to be on the wane and
many of the older (32+) riders didn't factor into the podiums as often as
some of the younger riders this year. gilbert's biggest competition for
(spring) classics looks to be lovkvist, ebh, eisel, pinotti, pozzato, valverde,
haussler, cancellara, devolder, fedrigo & cunego. i'm sure i forgot a bunch
but it seems like the "young guns" have had/will exert a greater influence
on the one-days than they will during the grand tours on the gc. the gt gc is
still veteran-heavy but with the schlecks, contador, kreuziger, nibali, gesink,
martin et al, that is slowly changing too.
