This is how you define a steep hill. Fabian Wegmmen went from 5 seconds ahead of the bunch to finishing 53 seconds down in 30th place-in the last kilometer! He lost 58 seconds in less than a K up the Mur de Huy. Damn that is climb.
My winners didn't pan out so hot. Ricco is looking questionalbe for any success this spring.
21 Alejandro Valverde Belmonte (Spa) Caisse d'Epargne
78 Frank Schleck (Lux) Team CSC
107 Riccardo Riccò (Ita) Saunier Duval - Scott
LBL should be good as a lot of guys are riding strong -Evans,Cunego,Rebellin,
Some interesting longshots coming into the frame like Barredo or Hesjedal.
