Don't you think (if this IS his last year), the 'bus' might help him a little?? I think he's got enough juice to have more than just his own team help him get the the end.undertrained said:
he won't quit, after all what happened this would be the stupidest thing to do. However I doubt he will make a cut on those fast mnt stages esp when climbers, Postal or T-Mobile will put screws on peloton. If Petacchi quits he will be extra motivates to stay in race.undertrained said:
I love Cipo's showmanship and I am thrilled that it looks like he will finally make it back to le Tour...but I would be HUGELY surprised if he makes it through to the end. He has had no shortage of excuses in the last year or so, and even with his pride he hasn't been afraid to use them.undertrained said:
Why will this year be any different? He'll start, win some sprint finishes, get a lot of attention from the press, and then things will tilt uphill. I'd like to see him finish and would love to see him doing the Alp De`Huez time trial, but I don't see it happening.undertrained said:
He's a dude so its devo.owmynads said:I think that, after about 3km on a hilly spot he'll pull over and, with a wave of the back of his hand, The Diva will say, "I'm off the Tour!" and get in the limo with the ho's/entourage.
