Tour Of California.

Final stage is on its way right now. Watching it on german eurosport. Uli ‚Janschi‘ Jansch is a commentator at this tv station… forever and still not capabale to read the simplest tactical maneuvers, always wondering what’s going on and who the riders attacking are. Beside being absolutely clueless about cycling he’s a master in turning the most exciting stage into something extremely boring with his commentary. Made me turn off the TV except for first, queen and final stage.
Hope, he won‘t do the tour this year, not pretending Gerhard ‚Leini‘(it’s not me inventing these cheesy nicknames!) Leinauer wouldn‘t be as incompetend as Janschi.
British eurosport with Sean Kelly & David Harmon is a lot better. You just might need to pump up the volume a bit in order to make sense of what grouchy Kelly is trying to say. Harmon and his quite typical british humor even makes me laugh. Leini & Janschi (& Migels) do so too, but that’s primarily cos i feel embarressed for them…

It’s about time!

French sports daily, L‘Equipe, rates Cadel Evans and Carlos Sastre 4-star favorites to win the Giro. L‘Equipe gives 3 stars to Alexandre Vinokourov, 2 stars to Ivan Basso, and 1 star to Michele Scarponi, Vincenzo Nibali and Bradley Wiggins.

Will have to be seen, but i‘m pretty sure Basso won‘t even be able to keep pace with his teammate Nibali. Coming into the race on short notice (replacement for Pellizotti) Nibali might not be 100% prepared, but as he points out in an interview: „My form is good. I had an altitude training camp in April with the others. While Basso and Pellizotti built up resistance, we worked on our explosiveness. This may be of use to me here.“ After his impressive performances in 2009 i rank him a lot higher than Scarponi, Wiggins and Basso. I‘m really curious how consistent Evans will perform. He will probably not be able to counter attacks in the steepest parts of the climbs again, but with good time trials and consistant result he’s a man to be reckoned with.
