OK, Andy Schleck is back on a bike today at the GP Camaiore. Come on everyone send the guy some good, positive vibes - we need him back on bike and cycling well. Well, back on his bike for a whole day would be a good start.
FEEL THE LOVE ANDY....

ETA 13.55. Andy has been dropped by the peloton, but he's still there on his bike with 20km to go. Come on Andy, you can do it.

ETA 15.00. Rumour has it, Andy has completed. Still waiting for the official results but I'm calling it now.
THREE CHEERS FOR ANDY...

It surely will.
Bless him, he didn't have it easy either. Had a mechanical problem (please god not another chain issue), then got dropped on the last climb and rode with the grupetto. But he stuck to it, didn't give an inch and triumphed. Jens wasn't there, but I like to think he was coming through race radio with his motivational speeches : D

I'm right pleased for the lad. Did you see the pre-race article in cycling news? Made quite sad reading.

YAAY for Sagan too, looks like it's going to be his year. I'm even more pleased because I have him in my fantasy team. Course I also had Andy, but c'est la vie.

I read about the mechanical - maybe he used a bit more energy to get back on, and today was more about finishing than anything else.
Oh yeah, but he gets Fabian at Strade-Bianche at the weekend (don't know if he's doing Tirreno with Andy though, and Jens is doing Paris-Nice so there could be a lot of phone calls!)

Yeah I saw it. I know I felt so sorry for him, but things had been building up before last year's problems (especially regarding descents at the 2011 Tour - cause that was psychological and related to what happened with Wouter at the Giro). Hoping he can turn it around and the team protect him.
Yeah, he's quite the talent and can be really amusing - but i want Cav to win green and beat him.
