He should not have been allowed to start today. Even though Reza accepted the apology UCI should make a case about this. But since British Cycling runs UCI this is not going to happen, unfortunately.

Today starts my race, after the 1st stage's disapointment...
It's about time to race organisers have a unique measure when classifying climbs...:(

Looks like it can be a Sky rider.

I thought yesterday's climb could make some diferences... bad reading...:)
Now, i'll have to wait to the weekend to see my team perform GREAT! :)
Assassin, the duel is yours...:)

After cleaning up the result list a little bit, Ion Izagirre again find himself in a great position .... and the queen stage suits him very well .... can he hold it together for once ?

In danish though, but I guess thats what we got google trans for :p ....
Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Tuesday 25.Apr 20:13, 2017
Tomorrow will show who made the best choices...:)
I picked Sebastien and Castroviejo instead of Albasini and Felline. Hoping the Spanish can lose small time tomorrow and Saturday to have a chance to place top10 Sunday. The Swiss I just hope he can enjoy racing without Pinot and show how strong he can be...
P.S. Tejay in my team as usual...:) nothing to declare so far...:) he would have done a good prologue if not falling...
goon1221 [BMC] Tuesday 25.Apr 20:01, 2017
My last move was Albasini from 80 to 100 and Felline from 100 to 80 :D ..... I hold my tradision and change myself down the list in my last move :D probably. ... little early to say that though :D

Felline has looked very good in the mountains this year. But has always played the team game. He is designated team leader for this race, not too often he gets that with Contador and Mollema in the team.
Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Tuesday 25.Apr 15:03, 2017
I can't exactly call him a joker, but just have to hope Castroviejo on 125% pays off and that the parcours is just as easy as I think. He's my outsider pick to win the whole race, but he may lose too much on Saturday, but not very hard final climb, so I think he can do it actually.
Francisco [K92-União Ciclista] Tuesday 25.Apr 11:31, 2017
With this race finishing 4 or 5 days before Giro, what can we expect from Ilnur, Tejay, Simon or Bob?...
Or even Sebastien?..
Very, very dificult.
If Chris, Richie, Ion or Primuz are obvious the rest isn't. There are some strong names to "replace" the Giro riders...

I keep going back and forth with Amador and Fernandez or just put them both on my team. Amador should be headed to the Giro to be the top helper for Quintana. Fernandez is not headed to the Giro. Amador is a proven team leader for Movistar while Fernandez is not, yet he has gotten some very good results for the team when needed.

Actually De la cruz has two really strong TTs behind him this season ... 5th on a 28 km in pais Vasco, and 6th on a 15 km ( with the steep climb last km ) in Paris Nice .... he has definitely taken a step this season :)))
goon1221 [BMC] Monday 24.Apr 18:43, 2017
I am sorry Andy .... I don't agree at all .... weither some of the climbs are cancelled or changed into something easyer, or remains as they are, the "long" TT is still the crucial stage, and it won't matter that much either way .... so that is not a question at all .... besides, when we set teams, we can't take other precautions than what the parcours descriptions tells us .... I am much more interested in what people in here has to say about the riders .... De la Cruz or Jungels fex ? Thats one of my big doubts ... and what about Zakarin and Spilak ... Spilak known as mr. Romandie, but hasn't showed anytring for a long time, and Zakarin, potentially the 3rd strongest guy here, done really well here before and SHOULD be in great shape for the Giro now .... showed great form before i crached out off catalunya a month ago ......
Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 24.Apr 17:20, 2017
The biggest issue here is to find out how tough the stages are and to figure out if any stages are due to changes because of weather, that has happened in Romandie before recently.
goon1221 [BMC] Monday 24.Apr 14:19, 2017
Tour de Romandie ... Last prep for some of the Giro guys like Jungels, Zakarin, Van Garderen and Simon Yates. ... that opens up a couple of questions managervize .... at first glance, 9 guys just ran out of the startlist into my team, but unfortunately, my brain startet to run with it, so the doubts was unavoidable :D .... De la cruz or Jungels ? Zakarin or Spilak ? Simon Yates ? I mean the TT km are crucial here, and Albasini got some really good chances for a stage win or two ..... Van Garderen in addition to Porte ? .... what do we think here people ?
