    Just as well Paris-Nice went ahead because it has been nothing short of a thrilling race with Alberto Contador having the entire team riding as if it was the Tour stage (like Popoyvch, Leipheimer), before attacking the on the final climb, trailing just by 6 seconds to Davide Rebellin of Gerolsteiner, who had no team has the vast majority had all abandoned by that point, and staying away to win.

    Say what you like about the team (DC) but you have to hand it to them on how they raced and really want to make an effort to get a new sponsor for next season. Already they have 8 wins under their belt (would be more if they still had Tom Boonen).

    And assuming he is picked, look out for Stefan Shumacher (not related to that tosser Michael) of Gerolsteiner as a good chance of winning the prolouge in London. You heard it here first.

    Oscar Freire.

    Wouldn't mind Thor Hushovd, but I have doubts about when it comes to such long distances. Ideally I wouldn't mind Samuel Sanchez (probably the only guy at Euskaltel Euskadi who does anything these days) or Erik Zabel to win, but I will stick with Freire when in all likelyhood Tom Boonen will win (if Paolo Bettini doesn't have a crack himself).

    Zabel is still racing? He must be getting on a bit now.

    He's 36 or 37

    Took his 200th career win last year. Won two stages of the Vuelta and was just done on the line by Bettini in the World Championships in Salzburg.

    Can't see him getting over Poggio, myself. (Yes, it's tiny, but Hushovd's a heavy bloke and does have problems with long-distance races too, and the only domestique he can hope to get with him over is Bellotti. Maybe Mads too, he raced well in California.)

    I'll tip Pozzato.

    Thor Hushovd is not starting due to gastroenteritis. Really if you looked up one man band in cycling, then Credit Agricole would have to take the prize. Without Thor IMO they are about the same as Bouygues Telecom. I must admit they are my favourite French team and Pierrick Fedrigo is perhaps my favourite French rider. At least you know what you are going to get from them and can't fault them for having a go as well.

    Well picked. Milram messed up their sprint (Zabel led out Petacchi, then finished sixth and Petacchi eighth) and even Allan Davis beat Tommeke. Fun race.

    I like CA/Gan purely for the Boardman link myself.

    Did you see Gerolsteiner's Andrea Moletta's crash? Ouch and the now the majority of his season is gone, if he will be lucky to ride at all this year.

    Thought you might like to know:

    In MSR, the best placed Brit was Jeremy Hunt at 16th, Roger Hammond came in at 42nd spot, Steve Cummings in 64th sport and David Miller in at 72nd spot. Unless ASO change their minds (don't see it happening), then you could see all of those riders, bar Cummings all lining up in London.

    Was looking to see if cyclingnews had any pictures of Moletta the other day and came across the full results. Thought Hammond might have finished a bit higher tbh.

    With Leif Hoste not starting Ghent-Wevelgem, and Tom Boonen not giving a rats arse about it, George Hincapie currently injured, he is a strong chance of taking it home IMO if he doesn't crash in Flanders again.

    Hammond or Alessandro Ballan of Lampre to win it.
