To me Wiggins certainly doesn't look 100% so something like the stomach bug seems very plausible. IMO, as long as Wiggins is fit and healthy, he should still have the 2nd TT sewn up (at least vs the GC riders). He's been very quick on the Col d’Eze and was still faster than Nibali, both overall and on the final climb in Stage 8 despite looking rather 'grey'.

Re: Hansen's shoes - They're very cool, especially so if he's made them himself. I'm kinda surprised some WW's think they're a new idea though - Simmons have been making something similar for quite a while:

Oh and a super impressive stage win :thumbup:

@Liggero - most of the time I can't work out if you're trolling or just stupid :lol:

Wiggo to me looks like a man with a few other things on his mind at the moment and the Giro looks like the furthest thing from his mind. I get the impression he regrets signing up for this one...

Honestly Wiggins just looks like he is biding his time. I'm not sure he is more confident now than he was before the Tour, but when he has never responded well to pressure and bad luck. How many times have we seen him with bike problems in the past and including at key moments? I bet after losing time in the crash that just killed his morale especially knowing what is coming up. Nibali couldn't drop him last year, but these climbs are a bit different and Wiggo will have to be a bit more explosive to hang on especially on the steeper climbs. Nibali also has a stronger team around him this year.

Evans to me has the weakest mountain team of any contendor. With all their money BMC doesn't have that many good domestiques.

Wiggo on Evans: "Cadel is the best I've seen him since he won the Tour. He's certainly a danger man."

Wiggo losing time again!!! 1:30 min behind now. I guess having a track background is no good in the rain...

Eric Boyer (wiggos old team manager on cofidis) accusing Wiggins for doping.

And that test for AICAR will be in pmace for TdF

In danish: http://veloropa.dk/det-nye-epo

I just saw on tv that AICAR or the other stuff could give tumors

AICAR test can trace the stuff eight years back. I wonder how many will finish this year without a ban if it is as widespread as it is made to be

If it can be traced 8 years... Well, hehe... hehehe...

Hesjedal out in a not that tough mountain stage, as the big mountain were in the middle, not at the end. Wiggo saved his ass today, Cadel too.

# Sarcastic mode on warning, for those with high sensibility #: Great attack by Evans today, either he or Taylor Phinney gonna win the giro.

BMC is more of a classics team than anything else. That's the way it was last year. No real climbers on it to help Evans. That's the way it's been most of his career. You combine that with the hypothetical scenario of him dealing with the juiced up guys in the past and his inability to attack when he needed to you get Evans's career but he's done better than expected through it all in his later years when hypothetically the drug use has subsided a bit and his tactics of attacking at the right moment have improved.

You omit to mention that the same article highlights that Boyer was in charge when several of his riders were caught doping or were, by their own admission, doping. Either he's clueless or complicit.

I think that's kinda the point.....the team was a bunch of dopers, and he is saying that Sir Wiggo was not the exception.
