    Hopefully that means Zabel will see the light and concentrate on the classics-he's probably not explosive enough anymore to win the big sprints, but I could easily see him winning at Ghent or Flanders.

    Got a better chance in the classics than in a bunch sprint with Pettachi, Freire, etc. You're right though, he won't beat Boonen straight up (I'm not sure anyone can) but in races like Ghent where the biggest names take it easy for roubaix he may have a shot.

    Oh yeah, Vino's cool but Adam Craig is the coolest.

    Since Lance retired, Basso is my favorite right now.


    But for the future I will be looking at Andrey Kashenckin.

    Yea, I'm a fan of Basso too, I'm asking for a CSC jersey for Christmas... I also like Levi Leipheimer.

    Also I love how Jens Voigt races, he just does those super long breakaways.


    I used to like Roberto Heras, before he doped:(

    That is what I love about mountain biking there are no idles or extremely famous people. There are home town favorites and trail heroes. People who have made this such a great sport and no one even knows there name. They are my favorite riders. :rolleyes:

    Valverde all the way, he chumps all. World class sprinter (silver at worlds to boonen), world class climber (armstrong beaten at courchevel), he's got heart too (vuelta 2004, crashed yet next day went on attack even though he didn't have it in him). And he just took a classic, and he's only 26. He's so much fun to watch. Ullrich aint to bad, loving his crashes.

    i've gotta say boonen, he's soooo fast and he's got an awesome sense of style. he can sprint and handle the wicked climbs of flanders as well as finish the tour, he's a complete rider.

    I completely understand. I was a huge Tyler Hamilton fan. I would have to say it's a toss up between Levi Leipheimer and Alessandro Petacchi.

    I like plenty of riders and don`t have a real favorite. If I have to choose, they`re Valverde and Chavanel. I like Valverde because he`s winning from beggining to the end of the season and Chavanel because he`s always in breakaway, fighting till the end.

    Ive gotta say Boonen and Danielson. Boonen can just about outsprint anyone, and Danielson is an amazing climber.

    Vino and Landis. vino because of how he rides, great to watch. Landis because of how he won the tour with the comeback on stage 17, that is the heart of a champion, and he's an american, I liked lance but he was kind of cold and caculating with his style, not all that exciting
