    It's a shame.

    Two years in a row we've been robbed of the Canc Boonen duel.
  • To be fair, he was never going to win so it's prob for the best. I jut hope he has a good Tour to make up for it, as the Worlds is not for him

    Think he'll spend most of the Tour leading out Cavendish, if he even rides it.

    Shame he's missing Roubaix though, even out of sorts he could have at least mixed things up.

  • Sh*t he'll be leading out Cav won't he? What's he got t aim for then, for the rest of the year?

    The Muur stage of the Eneco Tour? The Tour of Poland? Stage wins in the Vuelta?

    Shame he won't make it, but think the team said he still had a bad leg from last week? So sounds like it correct he would perhaps not have been up to form.
    Pain hurts much less if its topped off with beating your mates to top of a climb.
