    Or: Cipollini is in the tour. WTF? ;)

    Yeah, the sprints should be good, but I still find the logic behind DV's inclusion to be slightly bizarre.

    I agree there are more deserving teams.

    will Cippo make it to Paris, for a change ??

    I should know by now not to have liquids around while reading the bulletin board, but I don't. You made me snort coffee all over my monitor with that one.

    But maybe I'm being nasty and cynical. After all, I read at cyclingnews.com that Leblanc said "Cipollini called me ten days ago to say 'I really want to do the Tour, and I promise to get through everything'." Who could doubt the man's word? :D

    I think, Mouse Potato, that we'll just have to wait and see
    as regards this Cippo finishing (in Paris, I mean !)

    Cipo is gonna get SPANKED by Petacchi.
    He won't win a single stage.
    He'll retire in ignominy.
    Jean Marie is well aware of this and can't wait to watch.
    JMHO.
