Nice preview brother, it says it's live on Eurosport 2, it's not live in the UK but is it in mainland Europe?

Hope so as it likely means there will be a live stream I can watch somewhere.

No way, surely there will be streams knocking around?

HArd to see past contador for me I will be betting on him.
The quality of the competition last year was also much less than there will be this year.


I expect Sky will be trying out their train, and I think it will be Nibali and Contador going for the win on Green mountain. If Froome's in good health I could see him contending as well. Also hoping Dombro can do well, and Sky don't hold him back too much.

I am barracking for Alberto, because Cadel won't win. I have strangely warmed to Contador since la Vuelta.
