He'll climb Faron with other Mont from the neighborhood in his mind.
It will certainly feel like Ventoux after the winter.

All he has to do is get fit. A fit Andy scares Contador. A fit Andy and Contador blows away Team Sky.

Radioshacks new DS Guercilena makes some good points about Schleck here. Based on this it sounds like he will be a good DS for helping Schleck get back to his best.

Sounds like he has his head screwed on. Should be good for Andy.

You say this as though Froome is going to ride the climbs in a defensive manner and poor Team Sky will have to construct a train to tow their hapless captain up to all main climbs. I can imagine many things, but the difference between 3 in the mountains won't be big.

Contador and Schleck should still be able to drop Froome. He's good, but they're on another level.

You seem to be stuck on 2010.

Agree with this to some extent. Contador and Schleck have proven themselves in the mountains many times to be the best riders. Froome while looking strong in the last Tour still struggled to drop Cobo in the 2011 Vuelta and lost time on the Angliru. That said, there is no climb as freakish in next years Tour.

The 2012 Vuelta is harder to read just because Froome was coming off the Tour.

Schleck is weakest in the TT (By some margin) so will be up to him to force the pace. If all three are on form it could be a great Tour.

I hope it won't be a "great" tour
