    Tour de romandie

    So who are your hopefuls?
    I'd like to see Pinot do well. Looks like his TT has improved slightly.


    Froome looks piss poor. Bummer for sky but I really don't see him having a good year. I know he has had some illness etc. but I don't see him ready for the tour

    Sprinters often do well in short TTs and prologues, especially when there are several slow 90 degree type corners that they can blast out of.

    Its hard to bet against Kwiatkowski in light of his result in the spring classics. Having said that the profile of the 3 stage has Nibali written all over it. If he can get clear of the other contenders on the last climb nobody is going to get close to him on the descend. If Froome is not up to speed Sky has Porte and Lopez. Im hopeful that Ramunas Navardauskas of Garmin Sharp is going to do well.

    I would dearly have liked to see Thomas Voeckler land a victory today. He never seems to get a payoff for all his entertaining performances.

    Piss poor huh? It appears Froomestrong got his injections just in time. Injured, sick just recently, but now motorbiking up mountains again. He's so laughable. In his heyday, I think Armstrong would be dropped by this alien. You can already give him the Tour title, I've seen enough.

    I think it is going to be a tough Tour and I would also like to believe Chris is clean.

    I'd like to believe they are all clean. Fortunately, I don't care much whether they are or not. It's beautiful either way.
