I never thought of it that way but you may be right.

Wiggins/ Froome are the unifiers here. Schlecks havent done nothing since Cadel and Contador fans still hated eachother. Especially for Evans fans. i know some cadel fans for whom Froome winning PDBF was the Rubicon. They thought that that was going to be Cadel's Tour, with Contador and Schleck missing.

Of course had Cadel won that Tour and had 2 tours like Contador, Evans and Contador fans would be at eachothers throats big time over who is the greatest. -

You still have to register a name/adress, so I would have too use a nondanish name and adress, that I could verify, would be a bit of a trouble, and with the fast coming limits it will not be worth the trouble.

They can't be serious in questioning that, that's just ridiculous

Oh look at those odds for Contador winning the overall. Way too short. He should be a 50-1 shot at best.
