Open Thread: Milano-Sanremo


It's Milano-Sanremo Friday! I have a course post on the way. And there's lots of news circulating around the internets. Consider this thread the place for all Milano-Sanremo news.

I'll start with two tidbits:

Lance Armstrong, who rode Milano-Sanremo last year, will not take the start tomorrow. His reason? Acute gastro-intestinal distress. The stomach virus, always the bestest of excuses.

Hennie Kuiper, meanwhile, has picked Lars Boom of Rabobank as tomorrow's winner. Bold call, since Boom will ride La Primavera for the first time tomorrow.

In slightly un-related news - or at least, news unrelated to Milano-Sanremo, Heinrich Haussler will miss the Spring Classics due to his knee injury. Bah knee injuries! Hopefully, Barbie will be back in action before too long!

Got news? Post it up!
