My reasons... I think Contador built up for teh Giro only thinking about teh Giro... as he didn't know if he'd be at the tour. I think he was pushed harder than people think at the Giro as the race was ridiculous and I think he may be vulnerable.

Evans... he has had a great build up this year, and at Dauphine, he was there, but not super, and not killing himself. Perfect for the tour. He was also right there last year until he bust his elbow and was arguably robbed of the 2009 Vuelta. I think he is due his 'perfect tour'.

Wiggins. I believe. I also put him over A.Shleck this year as i think andy has been too 'clever' with his approach adn yeah, he may fly, but I personally think he'll come short.

Green... cav will get it as its worth the team fighting for the mid point prime on the days he won't win teh sprints.... I personally reckon Cav is a one sprint a day rider, and this new format will be good for him.

Voeckler - been on it all year, will be wanting to do something... this is an ideal target.
