Steve Cummings picked for Discovery's Giro squad. Here's hoping he'll get a stage win.
Coincidently the DS will be another Brit in Sean Yates.
Basso comes clean
If I were the UCI I would be meeting them with him and getting as much information as possible out of him to find out how he got away with for so long etc etc. But it won't happen as the UCI can be about as effective as the ICC at times.
Another update: Bradley Wiggins wins the prolouge in the Four Days of Dunkirk (yet it is a 6 day race) while with Basso it was apparently 'attempted doping', not actually doping itself

Anybody want to make Giro tips?
Will Gilberto Simoni who will have Iban Mayo as domestique de lux and young gun Riccardo Ricco get his 3rd Giro or will Damiano Cunego embrass Simoni for the 2nd time (they were team-mates in 2004 when Cunego won) or will there be an upset in the making?
Like the quality of sprinters and the field in general here, although they all would have abandoned by the time the race hits the Zonoclan (or they will abandon on it) and your know Thor Hushovd is serious when he has one of his top lead out men in Julian Dean with him.
Having Dean there is good...for three days until one of them hits the asphalt.
No idea about the overall. Simoni will have to make the podium with that team, assuming he's not caught.
I'm going for Popovych myself.
Mark Cavendish gets pro win number 2 by beating Gert Steegmans and Roger Hammond (actually he gave a gun lead out) at the Four Days of Dunkirk.
Cavendish is really is having a gun year. Got two stage wins in the Tour of Cataluyna to give his tally to five this year. I'll say he will ride the Vuelta this year and could make an upset or two.
Pro Cycling is in a massive hole atm i'd say. Only plus is the fact that the Telekom riders are at least being honest, Riijs being the huge one.
Just watched the end of that stage... ouch.
