What happened to Basso?
don't think they'll both be protecting contador?pdh777 said:I think we will see a different Basso in the Giro or the Tour - Basso, Lance et al are using the TOC as a tune up.
I also think Lance is supporting Levi and trading favors for the tour.
Nope, I don't either. Levi is riding amazing right now and it's apparent that he's in prime condition to win the Tour by winning the ITT's hands down, and staying in the hunt on the climbs. Johann and Astana simply cannot continue to pretend that there won't be a conflict this summer, and that they'll be singing Kumbaya at the training table.doctor855 said:don't think they'll both be protecting contador?
You really think LL will keep this form for the next 4 months? he's been training to peak for this race all winter.iliveonnitro said:The more I think about it, the less I see Lance wanting to give Contador the Tour.
I hope he wins the Giro so he will feel a little less bad about giving AC the Tour. His form is ahead of basso and I still think basso will win the Giro...
Poor Levi. He should win it for the hell of it.
Because we all know the February races are determining the roosters in Julymoonmoth said:Contador is watching the ToC results carefully from Portugal, I'm sure, hoping to show something there in his ITT coming up.
And that he did. AC smoked the ITT in Algarve ITT, winning it easily by 33 seconds over #2, Chavanel, Astana is red-hot on two continents right now.moonmoth said:Contador is watching the ToC results carefully from Portugal, I'm sure, hoping to show something there in his ITT coming up.
I don't Lance is going to be able to win either the Giro or the Tour. I think he's really been struggling this past week in the TOC.peter1 said:You really think LL will keep this form for the next 4 months? he's been training to peak for this race all winter.
Basso is aiming for the Tour, I think, as is AC.
I don't think LA will/can win the Tour. I don't think he has the explosiveness to stay with Contador. having said that, there is no way Bruyneel is going to hold him back if he has the yellow jersey going into the mountains.
I know it's unlikely; Just wishful thinking. I like to see a good upset every now and then. It keeps things more interesting......just my opinion.den bakker said:and maybe scarlett johanson will stop by my place for a quickie today.
