/ Wiggins - the new Cavendish
First Thomas beats Wiggins in a time-trial and now this
All we need now is for Cav to win a mountain stage
What's it shown on?
And have I spoilt it for people watching highlights?
All we need is for Cav not to get dropped on a 2nd cat climb when the peloton are not going full bore!
To be fair he's just riding Romandie for some tough race miles after his paternity leave and the parcours does not really suit him. For Cav it's about getting strong and sharp for the Giro.
'Kinell well impressive.

Probably, but I'm retired, the weather is foul, and I watched it live.
Very impressive. Not really a bunch sprint, more as if Wiggins was just doing enough to stay at the front. Gave the impression he had a lot in reserve.
Any one got an idea of what has happened to Chris Froome.
Last year he seemed to be the potential new star after leading Wiggo home in the Vuelta.
Yesterday he lost 11 mins to Wiggins, then another 6 today.
Is he just nursing Cavendish along under team orders?
think i caught somthing on podium cafe about him picking up a thing while home in Zim - so maybe not fully fit

hes barely featured in serious competition for sky yet this season and so I dont reckon hes got the race miles in yet.

Given that he was managing to stay with a blatantly juiced Cobo at the Vuelta I'm not convinced that was an entirely fair reflection of his natural abilities.
An article last week indicated though Chris Froome had a recurrence of his problems with the bilharzia virus and has not been 100% this year -- hence his quiet start to the season. He looked to be doing some pretty impressive pulls on the front to the peloton today so I would guess he's starting to get some form back.
Not fully fit
Yeah - I read the same - the bilharzia has come back so he is in recovery.
