I think Froome has a big chance here, so I am going for him, but really I just want to see all of these guys have a great battle.

Would like it if a guy like Nibali won - he's cool and a very offensive rider.

I don't mind who wins it as long as the racing is as entertaining as the last couple of days in Oman. I dont think there will be a lot between the top 4 or 5 main guys.

Agreed. BMC should crush the opposition in the TTT although the MTF should make the difference and decide who wins the GC.

I'd like Nibali to win it again.

Froome appears to be the favourite, sadly.

Looks like at least in this forum Froome and Alberto are both pretty close in the favorite spot. with stages that are longer and a TTT and ITT, Evan who has won it before should be considered a danger. TA was always a race made for the italian. Can we expect an unknown challenger to surface from second tier candidates?

I think BMC will win in the TTT after last years disaster.

Evans FTW.

Looking forward to the race.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

The Grand Boucle wasn't just Europe's for the taking.

Voted for Froome but Evans & Contador will be very close. The difference will be made in Team trial I guess.

Depending on who they send, Astana might be not that far behind.
Sky's lineup is looking very climbing oriented so far but they'll add a couple good TTers for sure.

Whoever wins.. I'm already giddy imagining the battles of soon to be titans in TDF. I'm sure contador wants to win it this time or at least finish ahead of Froome. Angry Contador means MORE ATTACKS :D. I remember reading an article somewhere before Oman, that Froome wants to stick it to Contador, by winning first. Sorry, I can't find the link.

My guess is that Astana will send thier Italian armada to TA, while guys like Grivko, Brajko and Birdsong will do PN.

That doesn't bode too well for the TTT though.

nope, but I am not sure about Brajko (even though he probably will be captain in alot of smaller races since he has to slave for Nibali this May)

He is doing Giro, but not sure about what he is doing beofre that (probbly ardennes, but doubt he would want to work for Nibali before he have to)

Provisional start list.
Very impressed with Argos Shimano's team thus far.
