    Next up is L-B-L on Sunday coverage on Eurosport from 1.00pm Cycling News are running a live report from 10.00am.

    Who is going to have the legs for this one? Davide Rebellin was in the mix once again on Wednesday so I am sticking with him plus I know if I did go for someone else he would romp home. This one is Rebellin's.

    Here I go again! Sticking my neck out to be smartly chopped when the result is known.:angry:
    Cunego or any one of the Gerlosteiner squad.

    My favorite would have been Friere again but he seems to be a little off the pace this year so I will go for Cadel Evans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cracked ribs and all, but I'll be watching for Bettini. i'd love Gilbert to do something but I can't see him winning. Who'll get the climbers prize?

    Frank Schleck for me, but i think cunego and Evans may run him very close.
     
  7. Nearly mondo, nearly Steve!
    Interesting to see Schleck without gloves on...it was almost exciting after all that distance! :biggrin:

    The commentator on Sky sports kept calling someone Pffaffenburgher, but when you see it in writing it looks like Pfannburgher, can someone tell me which is correct, Thank you. I think he is Austrian.

    One of the strangest finishes I have ever seen it was like they were finishing up on a club run. From the front it looked like they upped the pace a little rather than sprinted for the line it was only when they showed a reverse angle that you could see that Valverde got some distance between him and Rebellin.

    Thought it was going to be Rebellin's day today.

    I thought Valverde timed his move well and was a worthy winner on the day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Me too. He seemed to be keeping a good eye on Valverde, marking his moves and making sure he was in the right place... but he just didn't have the legs when the time came.
