As people are already arguing about the most exciting race of the year :rolleyes: in the 'rating of the Tour rivals' thread, I thought it was a good idea to let The Dutch Maffia, us Belgian fanboys and the rest of the forum take their picks for the podium:p
I'll start with this:
1. Denis Mensjov - if Geox gets invited-
2. Ivan Basso
3. Jurgen VDB

If Geox doesn't get invited

1. Basso
2. Jurgen VDB
3. Cadel Evans


Schlecklet won't even finish due to alcohol intoxication imo :p

His holyness. Pfff. He has no chance.

I for one believe Andy Schleck will be able to go a week or 2 without drink.

1 Andrew
2 Samuel +3 minutes
3 Ivan +4 minutes
I was kidding about Andrew :p but I honestly believe he'll succumb to the pressure

Contador (?),
Schleck
Menchov (?),
Basso,
Evans/Sanchez

Evans/Sanchez will have the same time / same number of wins / etc. and will have to share the podium for the 3rd place, thus, making new TdF history (if seriously, I just can't decide :))

What happened to Van den Breakaway?
Exactly. Ambitious, determined rider.

[edit] I got the wrong end of the stick there, but it's true that you wouldn't hear that now.

I wonder how Movistar will play the Tour. Tondo won't be at the right level, surely. Will they ride for Plaza maybe? Or just go for stages?

Soler is quoted as saying that since he's won the KOM jersey at the Tour, his goal this year is to gain the yellow. This was from a CN article on his performance at the Tour de San Luis (sp). I think it may have been from early this week or late last week. I'm not certain though if he's simply hoping to wear the leader's jersey at some point or is seriously going for the overall. Also I don't know how closely his personal goals correspond with what the team might be seriously aiming for.
