1. With Igor Anton, Joaquin Rodriguez, and Vincenzo Nibali a mere two seconds apart from one another and the next-closest rider another 40-seconds back, has this year’s Vuelta already been reduced to a three-caballo race? And of the three, who has the best chance to win?
3. And what of Team Schleck/Luxembourg? They’re riding Treks in 2011, does a merger Radio Shack beckon? Would that make the most sense for both programs?
4. With Katusha signing an agreement with Focus for 2011, where will Ridley go? Can the company afford not to have bikes under one of the world’s best teams?
5. Why is BMC talking about getting Cadel Evans more support in the mountains? Is a continued focus on grand tour success the best thing for the Australian’s career?
