    It sucks putting your head on the line and having an opinion doesn't it? :D

    It's only pure speculation at this stage and I think he has the composition right, 4 for sprints, 5 for GC.

    Any ideas on what Nordhaug is up to atm?  Having had a good start to the season, he's not been selected for either Paris-Nice or Catalunya (according to the start list), which seems a bit odd to me as he would be a pretty good domestique going uphill for Wiggins...

    Quote
    Mark Cavendish could quit the Tour de France early to focus on the Olympic cycling road race, the world champion's coach said.


    Cavendish, who won the green jersey for the points classification last year and at 26 already has 20 Tour stage wins to his name, would not enter the race with the goal of defending the shirt.
    "Mark has said he wants to finish the Tour, but if he knows he can win the Olympics he will take the final week day by day," coach Rod Ellingworth, who is also Britain's Olympic road-race team manager, told The Guardian online.
    "If the green jersey comes, it comes. He wants to win stages at the Tour, not have the green jersey as his main objective. There is a chance he could get off in the Tour if he is tired and is digging himself into a hole."
    The Tour ends in Paris on July 22, with the London Olympic road race scheduled for July 28.
    Should Cavendish actually give up his green jersey ambitions, his Team Sky could favour compatriot Bradley Wiggins, who emerged as a potential Tour winner after his Paris-Nice victory this month.

    I would rather a green jersey than a gold medal.

    But a gold medal will help his financial future better than the green jersey, but as fan of cycling and not the olympics, i prefer a green jersey.

    Would be curious to know what he got them for the win. I remember Contador bought watches for his 2009 winning TdF team mates.

    It's a different history for Sky/GB though. Sky was a project spun out of the track programme. All the GB riders on SKy, bar Hunt, were first and foremost identified as potential Gold medal contenders. There is a legacy there that means Brits will tend to rate Olympic baubles more highly than the rest of the peloton.

    Arrow will not pay anything until Flanders: "The aim is to Roubaix"

    http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A//www.biciciclismo.com/cas/site/eventos_online-ficha.asp?id=166&hl=en&langpair=es|en&tbb=1&ie=ISO-8859-1

    Quote
    Despite his hand injury progressing well, Juan Antonio Flecha and technical and medical staff of Team Sky have decided not to take risks and the broker will not contest this week Catalan tests Flemish Dwars door Vlaanderen, Vlaanderen-E3 Prijs Harlebeke and Ghent-Wevelgem. Thus, take the exit at the Tour of Flanders on April 1 without competing with the mind of the Paris-Roubaix a week later.

    Arrow had surgery of the third metacarpal of his right hand after a fall in training prior to the Tirreno-Adriatico, which has disrupted their plans. "The hand is fine and we decided on the team not taking any chances. Yesterday I visited the surgeon and the lesion is well sealed and bone fit nicely into place, but of course the hand is still weak when taking the handlebars and the potholes and cobbles could hurt me. not worth it and is too risky, "confirms BiciCiclismo.

    "It's okay because I'm either way, I'm training very well in roll and on Thursday I'll go on the road, just two weeks after the operation. I am quite happy and quiet. I go out and run now, but be realistic and I have not the same strength in the hand, "he explains.

    So do not run this week Waregem, E3 Prijs and Gent, nor the Criterium International. "I'll go out in Flanders without running anything before, but from the beginning the goal has always been Roubaix. I have a doubt run Ghent. The doctor told me it could be, although it is best not to assume that risk for a career and a day competition, "he says.

    "So on Thursday of next week I will travel to Flanders, the recognition will on Friday and will run on Sunday," he concludes. Meanwhile, continuing its training in Puigcerdá so far on the roller, and from Thursday morning, perhaps do some trial and return to the road. Until his accident, shone in the Tour of Qatar and the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, third in both tests. Now expected to reach timely and Northern Hell on 8 April.

    Struggling to fill race squads..

    Dwars (6)
    Mark Cavendish, Jeremy Hunt, Christian Knees, Salvatore Puccio, Luke Rowe, Chris Sutton
    E3 (7) Edvald Boasson Hagen, Bernhard Eisel, Mathew Hayman, Jeremy Hunt, Christian Knees, Ian Stannard, Chris Sutton
    Criterium (6) Chris Froome, Thomas Löfkvist, Lars-Petter Nordhaug, Salvatore Puccio, Michael Rogers, Luke Rowe
    Gent (8 ) Edvald Boasson Hagen, Mark Cavendish, Bernhard Eisel, Mathew Hayman, Jeremy Hunt, Christian Knees, Ian Stannard, Chris Sutton 

    No Eisel or Flecha for Dwars, No Henao for Criterium.
