I think Sagan will have to ride negatively to beat Cancellara and not fall prey to his mind games like he did before and during MSR.

Remember that Canc doesn't have a strong team behind him and that the super negative tactics by Garmin and Quickstep (Chava sitting in) in 2011 and Nick Nuyen won. I wonder if everyone will do that this year as well.

I think Canc is stronger than Sagan over a big distance, question is, who will get their tactics right on the day.

If the race is negative, who are the outsiders in with a chance?

A big part of Katusha seems to prefer the Giro Atmos (seen Menchov, than Kristoff and some other guys) than the newest Aeon, probably due to fit as some guys pointed out.


The Aeon is a great helmet but can look huge on some people. It doesn't sit "flush" like the Atmos.

Cavendish, IIRC, has even won the odd ITT - albeit of a short nature. But then, most *good* sprinters can usually put in a good TT... IF it suits them.

Ding ding ding! Good call, definite dark horse chance. I'd put Bozic in there too, though I think he smells a bit...

Stijn Vandenburgh has massively impressed me this spring. I think if quickstep send him up the road and he gets some dangerous companions, he could ride away from a weak RadioShack and Cannondale squad. He hasn't shown explosiveness but he has shown a lot of brute strength.

I think quickstep play him early, Chava w about 50kms to go, and the hope the last chance is a 15-20 rider sprint where Boonen can win.

Understandable when you see their power profile from the last five minutes or so of a race! They really have to work to even get into position to sprint.

Sorry, but I can't disagree......a doper beating a bunch of dopers.

Lets get back on topic......this is the "Pro" cycling discussion, not the "Ex-Pro" cycling discussion.

Flecha on a Bianchi prototype, possibly a replacement for the 4 year old Infinito?

Meanwhile in Flanders... looks like new classics Bianchi for Flecha and Vacansoleil-DCM:

Last year the team used three frames for cobbled classics: oltre, infinito and alu impulso
