Thought I'd see if there were any other cycling fans around? Anyone got thoughts on the TDF? Froome and Contador favourites but I reckon Rodriguez and Valverde will be in with a shot as it's more like a Vuelta than a Tour with all the ascents. No-one really knows what the effect of a double ascent of Alp D'Huez will be. Froome's time-trialling will help him get yellow provided he doesn't get dropped too badly on the top category climbs. Sorry Aussies but Cadel Evans has no chance.
