    I’d love to see Tommeke up there duking it out with Spartacus one last time…and hanging up his wheels for good at the end of the season as well.

    Certainly looks to me like he will need to win from a break consisting only of Ettix riders, just doesn’t seem to have the 2012 form, and everyone else just happy to sit on him if he tries to break away, but he can’t pull them all and gain time like Cancellara. He hopefully has learnt from last few performances that he can’t ride off the front and expect to have other riders work with him. He will need to form a selection of the strongest opponents he has and duke it out in the velodrome. Ettix will need to be in any breaks, I am convinced the reason they haven’t done well is that the peloton is happy for them to use up their horsepower to chase the break, they need to be represented in the breaks with one of their ridiculously strong riders who could all win in their own right on the right day (Vandenberg, Stybar, Martin, Terpstra, Trentin) so that the rest of them can sit in while other teams chase. Then they will have the legs near the end. Can’t wait!
