Hey! I'm a "yank" and I care! I care! :shock:

I'm really looking forward to the Criterium International this weekend. Anyone else? It should be real interesting with the line up.

Here's the start list

I think I figured out Cav's "dental problems" that's been holding him back. Dude got him some braces!

Look closely and you can see they're the clear kind you can get so it doesn't look like you have a mouth full of metal.

Not sure if this is the right place to get into doping issues but still;

I find it a bit "funny" that Liquigas makes Beltran pay for being doped in the '08 Tour and states: "We also believe it is a historic event for the whole world of cycling, as well as an important precedent in the battle to protect the sporting ethic." Which is a good thing, dopers should pay, BUT this comes from the same team that was joined by Ivan Basso right after his dope ban, and the contract was signed several months before the doping ban was over...

?

Looks like they are making a statement on doping, as they did in the offseason and invited journalists to their training camps. Which extends to basso, as they feel he's done all that was required by him from the uci and is now racing clean.

No different really to garmin's culture of racing clean and having David Millar in their squad.

Ivan Basso wasn't actually banned for doping, he was banned for attempted doping :wink:

Haussler out of Flanders and P-R.

Nuyens in doubt for Flanders, Freire refusing to ride as he (quote from his ds) "afraid of the Muur van Geraardsbergen." in addition to wanting to focus on the Amstel Gold race.

Yeah HH being out totally ruins my fantasy team. I was counting on him winning some stuff this classics season.

Anyone have Sylvain Chavanel in their team?

I don't generally dig fantasy comp's, but if I did I would have popped him in.

Can you transfer him in? Surely he'd cost less than Heinrich.

if I could switch Haussler for someone else, i'd go for cancellara or Boonen, IIRC, they cost almost the same in my fantasy team

Boasson Hagen out of Flanders.

Some fantasty teams are going to be in tatters :lol:


And Team Sky are planning to let the riders decide for themselves who will ride the TdF :unbelievable: could we see pistols at 10 paces???

Does that mean the French riders have already surrendered?

I kid, I kid.
