Tour De France almost here

About 9 days until the tour de france starts. Any predictions?

Froome is looking good and if his tram is up to snuff, he will be hard to beat. Liquigas will give it a good go, but their team is never focused enough. A Schleck will set his sights hi and will fail due to 1. Col 2. Rain. 3. A scary downhill or 4. All of the above. Contador will blame the beef.

Movistar’s band of dopers [Valverde et al] should give it a good go. Rui Costa was strong in Tour de Suisse so we can hope Sky’s mountain train gets put under threat.

It will be interesting to see if Cuddles or TJ is stronger for BMC, and if either is ordered to wait for the other on a mountain stage. Both have gone well this season but I think Cadel’s Giro podium trumps Tejay’s ToC win especially when you factor in the TdS result.

Can Cav pick up the green jersey? It is tough to bet against Sagan in my books. The white jersey will also be an interesting competition, maybe more so than yellow.

Looking forward to Wiggo not being there. I hate when people use the c word.
