    As for Sky snapping hime up, I doubt they'll be the only team talking to his agent after this win - he blew off Navarro, Garzelli and Sorenson on that climb.

    JTL 3rd in 1st stage of Tour de Haut Var. Available on the Internet on france3cotedazur.fr from 2-4 our time tomorrow. Could he win another comp? Up against Gilbert, Voeckler, Gerrans amongst others. Russell Downing 10th as well.

    JTL won again and having listened to the interview (his French isn't bad) I think he said he'd talked to a world tour team last week.

    Last place he needs is Saxobank. Better stay with Endura this season, if his good form stays he will get offers. Plus, at Endura he is a leader, any big team it will be domestique duties, and palmares will suffer accordingly. The only thing I would move for, in his place, is a 2 year deal nice and watertight with a shedload of cash, it's a living after all and at 27 you have 6-7 decent years left if you take care of yourself properly, after that most riders lose a bit and it's always possible to drop down a level.

    I know, it was just a joke as they will be missing Alberto Contador right now.

    Not for too long though, just before Mr R appears before the UCI to try and keep his licence. All fun and games there then.

    JTL was third today after attacking and breaking a field including Sammy Sanchez and Robert Gesink on a tough climb in the Tour of Murcia today. Only problem was that he couldn't shake Quintana and cracked himself near the end.
