Return of Racing

I’m following the Jacob’s Creek Tour Down Under while I work on some odds and ends. While this isn’t a race that really captures my attention, it’s a signal that the pro season is underway, a season that prompts a few questions (and my predictions):

  1. Can Tom Boonen tally another Paris-Roubaix/Flanders/Worlds triple? (no).
  2. Will George Hincapie contest the Spring Classics or ride for a Tour de France GC victory? (yes, no).
  3. What’s the Tour podium going to look like minus Lance? (1. Basso 2. Ullrich 3. Leipheimer – a stretch, yeah, but I’d like to see it)
  4. Who’s the next doping casualty? (Who cares?)
