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 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

So you've ditched your legend and jumped ship to the alien? Never mind your guy will finish 2nd in Paris as usual:D

Contador to win, Froome 2nd as usual, Valverde to finish 3rd thanks to Quintana and Baby to DNF.
(This is ofc assuming these riders will still be around come TDF 2013.)

I used to play poker a bit. Based on THIS picture:

I believe Contador has the best chance of winning. I'm thinking Froome will be #2 or 3, and the other podium spot will come from one of the less likely riders - like Teejay, or Purito. Schleck will do well to get top 10, and Wiggo will be focusing on the Giro and the Vuelta. Wiggo would have a hard time with this course. Evans won't make the top 10.

Well, sometimes I ought to be absolutely serious otherwise no one will talk to me. :) I highly doubt thatValverde will race.

Only 32 km of time trialing Andy will lose big time on, this has got to be his best shot at winning the tour, if he ever wins it I think it will be this year. Logically though it will be:
1st- Contador
2nd- Schleck
3rd- Froome

Froome or Contador to win this. I'd love to see Andy win it but I'll wait until he shows some good form to start considering him a contender, I haven't lost all hope for him yet. One of the young riders to get 3rd, Tejay or Pinot.

And why is Cobo in the poll? Cobo will go down in history as an anonymous Vuelta winner that never did much else.
