Lbl 2009

Valverde has a 1st, 2nd and 1st, over the last three seasons.
Rebellin was 2nd last year and just won Fleche Wallonne.

And anybody picks Hincapie, you'll be banned.

I'll go with Cunego.

yup ... Cunego has to do something special or risk putting all of his eggs into Lombardy. Beside, he's been knocking on the door big time.

I pick valverde for the win with the spector of suspension in his future.

final selection includes rebellin, cunego, both schlecks, sanchez, and a guest appearance from kim kirchen.

surprise move that has everyone talking - gilbert rolls his eyes/shakes his head at evans on a descent and rides away from him to go and be a competitive bike racer.

George waved at me on his way out of town (on his bike) on my lunch ride today so I'm guessing he's not in the running... Either that or the 2009 Giants have pontoons on them...

Got it?

OK, then I'll pick Horner .

Seriously, I'm rooting for anyone but Valverde. I guess I'll narrow that to Andy Schleck.

He must of been talking about the other day:

Twitter: Out on bike, guy just passed me going uphill on a motorized bike. Then he waved at me as he passed laughing. Pretty funny.
