Discussions, predictions, race reports, updates, spoilers all in one.

Let's start. Who's your pick to win?

I say, Thor. Is Oscar Freire riding? He's a pretty good climber for a sprinter.

What about Stijn Devolder? Seems like his area as well IMO.

What do you think Cavendish will do?

a) drop out
b) finish but not great
c) win
d) Who's Cav? :D

I say he'd be in the main group to finish perhaps.

Petacchi

Cav - gets dropped on one of the late climbs and finishes a few minutes down.

uzzie, i swear, man. you beat me to the punch. and you didnt pick your boy;-)

start list is up at CN:
http://www.cyclingnews.com/road/2009/mar09/msr09/?id=startlist

thor is on form! can farrar sprint it again? boonen? flecha? hoste? who knows.

what i do know, however, is that i WANT the current italian champ to win. however, i have a feeling a certain someone in the race would do whatever he could to prevent it.

so if i had to pick, i will pick...pozzato. for fun.

while seeing petacchi win would be awesome, i dont think he will factor.
now that i said that, everyone should put money on him...

Cavendish will prob. get dropped on the Pogio as all the pundits are saying.

* Darkhorse - Stuey O. He's a tough-guy.

Boonen, Farrar will show well for Garmin. Cav gets dropped on some of the late hills.

My boy...sylvain for the win. He launches an attack on the poggio, the only counter is liquigas (to set up benati), because no other team will want to let Boonen sit on a wheel up the climb. Write it down. Well maybe benati gets it. Should be good regardless.
