Horner is a boss....not sure he has it in him for the whole sack of potatoes, but he'll be around.

He will be a sack of potatoes by the end of it.

I think he may be enjoying some Um Bongo or whatever juice is flavour of the month

I held Horner as one of my favourites before the race started. He seems very motivated and eager to prove himself. He may however be burning his matches a little early. But he'll be around :-)

Horner and Basso are really interesting for this one. They don't have age on their side but much to prove and missing much of the season due to injury makes for great late season performances when others are struggling with fatigue and burnout.

Firefox can't show the second one, but if you save the file, picture viewer software can show the image.

But how wide are his bars? 46?

Edit: Bikeradar says 44 in 2011. Looks wider though, might be because of his slim torso.

He has always been like that, it is just a congenital thing. His left toe naturally points in.

He does seem to be on some wide bars, I guess it all goes back to what feels best for you.
