Mario and the 2003 TDF...CaliforniaDreaming

So now that we've witnessed several impressive sprint finishes, anyone dare to theorize how Mario would have held up in this year's TDF. Do you think he's actively monitoring the race? Live or via the Tele? Just wondernig how the World Champion might have performed so far and how he might sit out the TDF. Please humor me!

On on form Pettachi was kicking his butt at the Giro...

A very on form Pettachi is kicking everyone else's butt in the Tour.

You add the two up and it still equals Pettachi is kicking everyone's butt, no matter who it is.

In my opinion, the only thing that would be better in the Tour right now by having Cippo there is that the sprint leadouts would be better organized and therefore less chaotic. That Zebra team sure can control a leadout.
