Cav nees to kick start his season on this one. It's a short prologue which he could do well in, followed by a sprinter's stage so it's not inconceivable that he could be in the leader's jersey.
Or not!

I'm thinking Nico Roche might do well in this.

Sagan second! In fact that's quite an interesting top six.

1 Marco Pinotti (Ita) Team HTC - Columbia 0:05:18 2 Peter Sagan (Svk) Liquigas-Doimo 0:00:01 3 Jérémy Roy (Fra) Française Des Jeux 0:00:03 4 Michael Rogers (Aus) Team HTC - Columbia 0:00:03 5 Rick Flens (Ned) Rabobank 0:00:03 6 Christophe Moreau (Fra) Caisse d'Epargne 0:00:04

Agreed - a great result! And nice to see Ben Swift up there in 9th too - he is potentially Britain's Sagan, a tough all-rounder who can sprint.

Cav is really not with it right now. He may yet be ready for the TdF, but I wouldn't be surprised if he has already thought about writing this season off and concentrating on the longer-term.

I think you're right about writing off this year. He almost said as much in the Times article with Kimmage.

Thanks for that link rich. Great interview and it's good to see behind the scenes sometimes. Amazing how much the personal life of an athlete can affect performance one way or another.
Let's hope he peaks for the Tour. A good stage win in California would do him a world of good.

I hadn't realised that the dental problems were self inflicted by a combination of cosmetics and ignoring medical advice!
