What's Cavendish going to do here? Apart from warming up for the Giro.

    Try to win stage 1

    plus convince Brad and DB that him going for the green will not affect Wiggos tilt at the Yellow

    apart from that looking for the ring to take to middle earth - standard

    just looking now - that is a pretty crappy course. 

    and now no T Martin ... may as well give it to Wiggins already

    That is easy when there are no stages ideally suited to him :D

    I actually think the course is reasonable, for Romandie anyway. the time trial is quite unique.

    :o just seen properly, the ITT profile. I'm thinking Evans, he won fairly well last year and he could gain time on stage 4 and the ITT.

    Cycling Fever have a Provisional Startlist

    Geraint Thomas tweeted Brad Wiggins that he would be joining him at this race so perhaps he will get shuffled into the Sky line up.

    Good Test Of Fitness
    Evans withdrew from the Amstel Gold Race a week ago, still feeling the effects of a sinus infection that kept him from starting the remaining Ardennes classics. But the race's defending champion – who also won this race in 2006 – said he is feeling much better and hopes to regain any fitness he has lost. "For sure it will be difficult to make the same result as last year, considering how I've felt in the last days," Evans said. "With my infection, I won't be at the same level of competitiveness. But I hope to be there for the hardest stages. I will take it day-by-day. We will see how I feel in the first two stages, and then I will have a better idea of where my condition is."

    I see Denis Menchov is in the start list.  I know some (Hitch) are tipping that he will be a genuine contender for the TDF, is this race going to be much of an indication of where he is at?  Will he be going FTW here?

    I think the rain and stuff probably made a 5-10" difference, so it would have been very close.

    Sky supremacy today. G has been training for a sub-four minute effort the whole time he's been on the track this spring so he was in good shape for today.

    By his own assessment in his post-race interview he doesn't have his climbing legs at the minute. Ordinarily I'd expect him to defend his jersey on a stage like tomorrow's but he might not be able to.

    Geraint coming off the track would have really helped him today but he still did a good ride.

    Should be an interesting one. I think the Haute de la Cote will do for Cavendish and some other sprinters but it will still come down to a bunch finish.
