    But he's got talent to burn. Even when he's out of shape he can win WT level races. Imagine how good he'd be if he had the right level of motivation.

    He must know this as well, right? Yet he clings on when it's obvious that he needs to go.

    I've heard you can get good pizza in Siena.

    She's pretty much been disowned by her local Labour Party. They should deselect her next.

    Good effort. Unfortunately, you picked about the worst time of year to do a ride like that as the ground is usually pretty sodden towards the end of February after a winter's worth of rain, and the spring surge, which sees a lot of the moisture taken out of the ground by trees and plants, hasn't begun yet.

    I concur with Ed on this. It's much easier swapping wheelsets when the hubs are identical as there's no need for faffing about getting the calipers realigned with the discs.

    Only by combining forces can they beat him. But they've got to be willing to loose to win.

    That's not going to happen though is it.

    Basically, you've got to anticipate him, so get someone up the road who's strong enough to win then use your other riders to mark Sagan so heavily that he can't get across. I think the 2011 season with Cancellara could be indicative, he [Cancellara] was so strong that it was obvious you had to out think him and his team, rather than over power him. So at Flanders QuickStep got Chavanel up the road early, then when Cancellara went, he was there to sit on him and not work. At Roubaix, Garmin got Vansummeren up the road, then Hushovd sat on Cancellara and wouldn't do a tap until it was too late.

    The more interesting question becomes - how do you beat Sagan in this kind of situation?
