Paris Nice

Paris Nice has started and the stage racing season has officially begun.  Of course there's the Challenge Mallorca, Haut Var and Tour of the Mediterranean, but Paris Nice is where many Grand Tour contenders begin their campaigns in earnest.    

This year the race skipped the normal prologue start and got right into the action with a road stage.  The time trial is a real 27k and has been moved to be later in the race and is expected to have some more impact on the overall ranking.  Word on the street is that Tony Martin of HTC-Specialized-Columbia-High Road-Whatever is the man to watch. 

If all goes according to plan I should be able to check out the time trial in Aix-en-Provence on Friday.
