Purito's Tour problem? No time bonus.

He picked up valuable time in both the Giro and Vuelta with those. Also, as mentioned, he's not a long climb guy. Ryder actually out rode him in the Giro on the long ones, even the long steep ones.

No matter what you could say, I think the Mapei kit is the best of all times, specially the 2002 version.


On the current peloton I really like the Movistar kit.

I liked the Mapei cubes as well, but I can't recall them by year date.
Which was the 2002 version? Mapei-? any pic links?

That's the last one, all cubes except blue background for text, like the one prendas sells and is used by Mapei factory cycle clubs today?
A classic.

Hope purito can tear things up a bit, as long as kristoff still can hunt stage wins that is. :)

micky beat me to it! That Stache is what is keeping him on the crown of the road, not the jersey.

HUMP

Yeah, I really hope Purito can break the monotony of the impending Sky train. Neither he nor Contador or Movistar will be able to do it by themselves. Problem is that I don't think he'll be able to actually take enough time tho. Even in the Vuelta where Froome was subpar, it took many days to dislodge him.

On Wiggo and burnout etc, I think it has to be recognised that he has to live at a completely unnatural weight in order to win a GT. I imagine the mental and physical fatigue of that over time can really get to anyone. All the other GT guys have always been slim (Contador, Nibali, Purito, even Froome).

Not far off. Kennaugh instead of Bernie.

Rodriguez came up through the ranks of the U.S. National Team (1992–1994) in the same 'class' as a series of other professional riders, including: Bobby Julich, Chann McRae, George Hincapie, Jeff Evanshine, Kevin Livingston, and Lance Armstrong.
Ha ha, let's hope not.

no Columbians in the Sky TdF squad? Bit of a surprise (to me at least)

Giro was extremely tough so more recovery time needed. Henoa looked really out of sorts towards the end.

Which long ones did he outride him in? I don't recall that happening on the Stelvio, but I can't seem to find a comprehensive list of stage finishes for the key stages so I could be forgetting something.
