2008 Milan – San Remo

from cyclingneews:

“Due to the Easter weekend and road construction, the race will not finish on its usual Via Roma percorso, but closer to the seaside. The finale of the Poggio will be some three kilometres longer.”

I have a vision of Robbie McEwen pick-pocketing his way to a win this year..

    Nice…I was waiting for this post.

    I’m going with Thor, although Boonen is due at this race too. but Thor is riding good right now and has what is needed to beat all in the sprint.

    Thanks Timmer.

    good call.. i was totally thinkin thor too.. then i saw the longer finish off the poggio and thought it’s a good amount of time for robbie to collect himself.. i’ve watched him in the past and he gets up to the front too early and blasts himself.. now he can take a little more time and pick the pockets to the front like he does in the tour.

  3. I’m going to go with Ballan on that finish.

  4. Oscar Friere yep back ta back!

    My only pick – Ricco and Schleck are going to give it a shot over the top of the Poggio again this year….

    hey dave, but i guess nothing has been confirmed.. not sure what the formal date is yet.. the fixi is ready for st peter though

    tim,
    that seem crazy to me, although it would be a fine course for that business. i have a hard enough time turning a geared bike around, let alone a bike i can’t back pedal with.
    hopefully they hold that day

    Another subject change…

    Timmer will the “Jet C2” be available soon? I need some new wheels soon.

  11. timmer
