    No doubt he has the engine, but does he have the constitution for the day in day out punishment? Thats why I reckon he needs a season to harden up before riding the Tour.

    well who rides.

    yeah, looks like Laurent.

    TD
    Vande Velde
    Millar
    DZ
    Backstedt
    Dean
    Laurent
    Hesjedal

    only 8 riders

    who from Sutton, Farrar, Pate, Lowe, Mccarty rides the Tour.

    Sutton would have to be a firm favourite. Won 4 or 5 times in Europe. That is about 5 times more than most of their squad. Farrar is damn strong though, plus he is 'merican.

    Plus he can set up Dean and he's a motor in the flats.

    Dean is a little quicker than Ogrady, but does not have Ogrady's strength.

    No chance Dean wins a Tour de France sprint.

    The ad below from cyclingnews must drive the Paceline guys nuts.

    They hate Slipstream like nothing I've ever seen. It is bizaar. They posted an interview with Millar where he says we are still going to try to win the ToC and we are going to try to take the jersey from Leipheimer. You know. Standard dumb athlete type of interview. They are practically ready to lynch the guy because of it. Its insane.

    I stopped reading their posts days ago. Trying to have an intellectual discussion is more than a bit frustrating with them.

    It is interesting that their hatred of Slipstream is so rampant.

    I thought I read that Lance has vowed to try to take Slipstream down. I'm not sure if that is internet lore or not but if Lord Lance doesn't like them, then his mindless minions on the Paceline forum won't like them either.

    I still cannot get their whole tripped-out thought that Astana is America's team.

    Hardly!

    High Road and Slipstream fill that role. CSC has more claim to it than they do.

    but that must be a tacit admission of guilt?

    why would they dislike them if doping was not a big problem?

    The dislike stems from a hatred of Vaughters I think, because he is not on the best terms with Lord Armstrong.

    Tommy Duggan's condition after his crash in the Tour of Georgia seems to be stabilizing despite some increased swelling/bleeding in his brain. Link provided from CFA... (scroll down the blog a bit to get update on his condition).
