Einstruzende said:Kim Kirchen might be a Green Jersey threat. He can definitely climb better than the typical Maillot Vert suspects, and his good placings on stage 1 and 2 have really helped set the foundation.
As for stage 2, that was a tough drag up to the finish. Not quite selective enough for someone like Ricco to have been able to compete.
Sure, but as long as he sits top 20 for the few pure sprint stages, he still gathers points. It's just a thought. I think Hushovd is going to win it.justinb said:He's definitely done well early, but his team isn't even going to be helping him on the true sprinter stages. They'll be setting up Cavendish.
