After today's prologue and upon receiving the White Jersey, TJ van Garderen, as reported by Velonews, described the contest between Cadel Evans and Wiggo as such.
“He [Cadel] can beat him [Wiggins]. I have this comparison, where it’s kind of like the boxer and the fighter. I keep thinking of ‘Rocky IV.’
“Wiggins, he’s like the boxer. He has all these wires and numbers and gadgets. And he has people looking after him, and everything is so scientific with him. But then, Cadel, he just rides hard and fights like no one I’ve ever seen. He can suffer more than anyone I’ve ever seen.
“It’s like Rocky versus Ivan Drago. Rocky still wins.”
I propose the following as BMC's and Cadel Evan's theme song for the 2012 Tour de France: Going the Distance. Because, simply, that anorexic, twigg of a man, will not go the distance. I lay my money on Tough and not numbers and science. Go Cadel! Golly jeeze, I may be your biggest American fan! Justice and everything that is right and good in the world, demands that Twiggo crashes and burns. Well, come on, he does have a history of it.
