Vuelta al Pais Vasco: Start List and more

There we go: since today Andy is back racing and in a tough race. I'm sure he's going to do his best but I also hope he's finally in a good shape and able to get some results: Ardennes Classics are around the corner. Here it's a realistic goal to finish in the top 20, to break-away somewhere, to try an attack to test his legs. That's all. But it isn't few. More than that could also arrive, with a bit of good luck, good weather and good moral. Why not? 
Unfortunately the weather isn't good and rain is expected all the week. In add some riders already got a flu and are not going to start: Bauke Mollema (Blanco) and also a RSLT's rider, Ben Hermans. RSLT announced earlier that its supposed leader Chris Horner was forced to withdraw because of pain at his knee.  
Ok: lets go and do the best of it. Fabian Cancellara's victory and the add of a new sponsor should be a boost.
As far as me... well... "I'm your silence: talk with me" (Rumi)
