Have to agree with that

Sanchez has dared a couple of times.. he who dares may win.

I've gone for Andy Schleck... when he puts the hammer down in the alps, he'll put the others in trouble. Think he was keeping his powder dry in the pyrenees.

I also think the form he's ridden himself into since tour of california is quite... impressive

Yeah, 50 metres from the finish line, the clueless gimp.

Contador will be making moves. I still think he'll win it.

Glad it wasn't just me who thought that.


I'm enjoying it, they all look like they are suffering horribly, which is what a bike race should be like.

Oh, you horrible cynic, you Laughing

If he's on it, they're all on it. And he's still the most talented big-tour cyclist of this generation.
