    I want Cancellara to win the whole thing now. That finish was epic. For him do that in yellow was like Eddie Merckx or something. Marvellous.

    Yes all depends if he can hang on to his team in the high mountains!
    A big ask but Indurain did it!

    Hey kids, aren't y'all getting a bit carried away.

    You're not obliged to suspend your disbelief, you know.

    He's strong, has quite a good team and can really timetrial and with 2 long time trials to come.....
     
  5. Last year Canch won Paris-Roubaix but wasn't selected for the Tour, despite being likely to top the prologue, because he can't climb.

    Sastre is CSC leader and a climber. CSC will rally round him when it gets hilly, including Canch as a domestique.

    If Sastre falters, Shleck might be an alternative leader if he's going well, Voigt too perhaps - and I reckon one or both of these two could get a stage.

    But not Canch, although it was great to see all the sprinters' teams mess-up yesterday and him win the stage.

    Nothing is impossible, but I would be very suprised if he continues in Yellow once the hills start!!!

    Yes I agree
    He has an outside chance of top 10 with the 2 long time trials if he can pull out performances like the prolog.
     
  10. Well this is what the man himself says....

    He'll be lucky to keep within 30 minutes by the end of the weekend. Although Indurain was nearly as big, he'd already proven himself with a mountain victory in 1989 before he went on to take his 5 victories.
