    Hi Keith, Do you know of any team that successfully mounted a campaign in the big tours for more than one jersey? Did Telecom ever manage it? It always suprises me when a climber joins a 'sprinter's team'. How do you think they will use him at Quick Step?

    I'm not sure how they will use him Tim, but he's also quite good in some of the bigger one day classics, he could be used to help bring the team and selected Captain to the front or even go for them himself if Boonen is not having a good day!!!!

    Yes, I was wondering about the classics. Something hilly perhaps. Tour of Flanders?

    perhaps a change in emphasis, maybe the sponsor is unhappy at having the team anonymous in the high profile mountain stages.

    Not sure that's a good move for Popo.
    We'll see I suppose
