I like this prediction, Pinot and Valverde are still podium contenders and Roland wont steal points from Voeckler.PoolhouseDave said:Predict your top 3 now:
Outsiders/others who could sneak into the Top 3 be default:
Pinot, Rolland, Nieve, Valverde, De Marchi, Navarro
Purito is just getting better. So he can win stages from breakaways (which he surely will) and i can see him being the best climber of the race in the last 2 pyrenees stages. So he can drop Nibbles and co at that point.Alcanelo said:Should be Nibbles at this stage...Purito won't be any way near as consistent as Nibali
... I took the polka dot jersey today because there were many points awarded here but Joaquim Rodriguez will take it back in the coming days. My only goal remains the yellow jersey.Dazed and Confused said:I hope Nibali. He would be the right man for the KOM. Strongest climber.
oh I'm sure Nibali doesn't care about the polka dot. However that won't stop me from hoping he will get it as the best climber in this race.zombo10 said:...

If he can make points in every climb with no effort and in the last climb still run away from Nibali he should be contesting for yellow not for the red dots jersey.damian13ster said:I think tommorow will be similar to previous breakaway stages involving those two. Majka not sprininting for 1st cat climbs, silently taking 2nd places behind Purito, then running away on the final climb hoping Nibali wont catch him and Rodriguez will crack. (or maybe I am wrong and he will contest for points during the stage since he holds the jersey now)
Well, I think he is quite far from yellow jersey , but saved more energy in earlier stages. Also, it is with assumption that he will have a headstart because of breakaway. In stage 13 even before such handicap at last climb he took 2nd (of course, he wasnt marked) and in stage 14 he had just 50s advantage at the beginning of last climb or something close to that and held it.Escarabajo said:If he can make points in every climb with no effort and in the last climb still run away from Nibali he should be contesting for yellow not for the red dots jersey.
