Default Le Tour de France 2013: who will win?

So the route was unveiled. An extensive food for thought was received for an off-season. So here we go. What do you think on who will win based on route and any other assumptions?

Bit hard to say. With the current news it depends a bit on who will start I guess. But if he starts then Contador.

I think J Rod should focus on the Tour next year.
I don't think he'll ever get a better shot at a Tour Podium.

Not sure if you got all the riders. I'll wait until next year until a proper poll will be posted.

I find the level Froome showed in this year Tour completely irreal, the best thing for 10 years I follow the sport. If he reaches it again, he will win, but surely one can't guarantee anything. So I'd rate it like that: Froome 45%, Contador, 35%, Andy & others 20%

Contador or Froome
Pinot third more than 5 minutes

Sagan green
Kessiakoff polka
Quintana white
Voeckler wins Mont Ventoux and maybe the most agressive rider
