A couple things bothering me after catching up on this thread:

1.) Internet forum and social media insinuation of being on a 'first name basis' with pro bike riders who you met once. You're not pals stop acting like it on the internet.

2.) Pro bike riders with horrible tattoos. WTF - you got Olympic rings tattooed on your arm for winning a silver on the track? And are bragging about it in your victo salute? Brutal.

3.) Andy Schleck's softness. Seriously how much softer can you get? Comparing him to Jan (yes I mean Ullrich we are super tight) is an insult. When Ullrich was eating everything (pills included) he could at least finish races and be flying by July.

I can get from zero to 400 watts in way less than an hour. I probably can't hold it for very long though. Can I wear them? :wink:

Be more specific with #1. I'm not BFF with Joe, but know him and have ridden with him in situations other than when he was pretty much demolishing local races. There are a lot of other people on here who know pros in the same way.

Yes you can only if you wear the Fred Flintstone kit with them.

You watching roadside?

I hear Schleck is riding, he's gotta be a lock for a result ;-)

Random one, Evans. Won on the strada bianchi before and is on form.

Yep! :D

I definitely rate Evans' chances. His Giro stage win was heroic.

Schleck, umm not so much!

Interesting that OPQS aren't fielding a team. I guess their dance card is quite full this weekend. Shame, I'd have like to see Chavanel give it a crack.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say Lars Boom.

Going with Canc on this one, think he might try the same thing as last year and see if anyone can hold on

I'm going Sagan, Iglinsky, and Cancellara. Fabian will tow them both to the line and then they'll jump him.

And for Paris-Nice, I'm predicting Menchov, Westra, and TvG.

I'm not so sure. If there's several km to go and they're still sucking his wheel, Fabian can kick in the Gruber Assist and pull free of Sagan and Iglinsky.

So are you the authority on "good tattos"? Olympic silver is pretty good in my book.. Sure bragging about it in a salute might be a little cockish but so what.

I think you let things bother you too easily ;)

Like he did to Nibali and Gerrans at MsR last year? He's human and tires like the rest of us, and it certainly doesn't help that others refuse to work with him.
