I prefer to base on suspense. There are too many questions in order to build on what was in 2009, 2010... All that collides with the questions like 'who is stronger purito '12 or schleck '11' or so. Answers to these questions don't exist. But I just don't understand why a rider [Nibali, Purito or anyone else] who vastly improved is considered knowingly and beforehand weaker than Schleck and Contador just on the base of the fact he got 3rd in the Tour without competing against them. Armstrong began from a weak Tour field too and smashed everyone even in a more snorting fashion year later.
What does lol imply? Do you offer me to consider Andy the 1st favorite for the Tour?
