Hesjedal for TDF ?

Postby Graham Gilmour » Thu May 31, 2012 8:08 pm

Hello folks , been following Ryder Hesjedals performance in the Giro last week which he won . Was wondering if this effectively rules him out or makes him stronger for the TDF this year ?

Two big tours in a year is pretty rare nowadays.

I was chatting to Rod Ellingworth the other day (I'm a shameless name dropper) and he reckons this is going to be Brads year.
May I remind you of that scene

General consensus is that the TDF is faster and more difficult than the Giro and Vuelta, so couldn't Ryder doing the biz at the Tour, even if he hadn't ridden the Giro.

I think Wiggo will be the one to watch, lets see how well he is going at the Dauphine, as the Tour warm up.
