uzziefly said:Kloden doesn't have the legs for such climbs nowadays but he sure makes a fantastic domestique alright when riding for Alberto.
I think Ivan Basso would take the race given how well he's climbing. Sure, he can't TT too well but he's still amongst the much better GC riders for TT-ing.
And, Brajkovic probably won't be able to hang with him either. As much as I want Jani to win this race since he hasn't had a good year, I doubt he could.
