    Baden Cookri should be in the Cyclists named after weapons category

    Sagan is still in pole position for me for green but who knows what can happen this year. Crashes can easily change the order and consistency wins the green. Go Cav keep plugging away we know you’ll get over the mountains but will Greipel and Goss.

    I hope it will be between Sagan abd Cav on the Champs Elysees.
