Haimar outlines Tour objectives

Speaking at the presentation of the new Tour t-shirt, which the fans will wear in the Pyrenees, yesterday, Haimar spoke of his desire to finally win a stage in world's biggest bike race: "Not improving on last year's fifth place overall would be a step back. We won't deny that, but first of all we'll look for a stage-win. But if you fight for a stage-win in the mountains you're also in there on GC. A podium place overall? Why not? That's the next step. The last week is quite hard. They've added some long climbs, and we (himself, Samu, Mikel and Iñaki) went to see some really hard stages. It was worth the trouble to go check them out. We now know what lies in store for us." Haimar singled out 5 main candidates for the overall win, and, not surprisingly, three of those are from CSC: "Evans, Valverde, Sastre and the hermanos Schleck". What about Menchov, Haimar?
