  1. Hard to leave out Kristoff, Terpstra, Sagan and/or Thomas. I’m still thinking one of them should be in here for Boonen in that 5th spot…. VSP PICKS: 1. FABIAN CANCELLARA 2. SEP VANMARCKE 3. GREG VAN AVERMAET 4. ZDENEK STYBAR 5. TOM BOONEN »

  1. Here’s to the head-to-head showdown – I think Boonen will be ready despite a hard few weeks. Sagan will be there and the rest….there are many but I definitely like Terpstra or Van Avermaet as they have shown such good form. VSP PICKS: 1. FABIAN CACELL… »

The Kemmelberg is a brute. In my opinion, its the hardest of the cobbled climbs in the Spring Classics; it has a high speed tarmac approach that saps the guns of their snap. The transition from tarmac to cobbles is awful, the stones are very badly laid throughout and if you don’t hit it just right, you’ll come to a standstill. The cobbl...

  1. Sagan allllll the way down in 4th…..not sure that’s the best pick but I’m going with it. VSP PICKS: 1. Cancellara, Fabian 2. Stybar, Zdenek 3. Van Avermaet, Greg 4. Sagan, Peter 5. Stannard, Ian »

Het Volk (it will always be Het Volk to me) and now the Strade Bianche may well mark the sentimental beginning to the season, but those are specialized, pre-season races that appeal mostly to riders who are preparing for bigger objectives later in the year, such as the Cobbled or Ardennes Classics. Same goes for Tirreno Adriatico and Paris-Nice; t...

  1. I won La Primavera last year and it was my only decent set of picks all season. Here’s to a better GC this year. VSP PICKS: 1. P. SAGAN 2. F. CANCELLARA 3. M. CAVENDISH 4. J. DEGENKOLB 5. S. CHAVANEL »

@el gato's posts:

  1. Roche for Martin, who crashed out and Horner for Mollema who’s not even close anymore. Hopefully I can salvage some points. I do think Nibali is looking like a podium finisher and probably the top step, not the third, but another swap would be just that m… »

  2. I didn’t manage my TdF Picks very well so hopefully I’ll show better en España. VSP PICKS: 1. J-ROD 2. A. VALVERDE 3. V. NIBALI 4. D. MARTIN 5. B. MOLLEMA »

The early eighties saw the tide change in the European Peloton. Components were taking on a new, curvy shape as they left their boxy forms behind. The glint of toe clips in the sun would become a rarer sight as the move towards clipless pedals would take hold in 1985. English speakers were winning the big races classically won by continental Pros.T...

  1. TJ out Valverde in. Quintana is ridiculous and has to move up. Contador has been there. J-Rod has been there on the climbs lurking in the background and despite his lack of team support i feel like he’s gonna make a big move on one of these climbs. VSP … »
