Premature Pivotal TT Podium Predictions

Stage 12 picks.

I'm guessing Leipheimer. I don't see anyone else having the legs to beat him.

Basso and Menchov will round out the podium, order TBA, with Pelizotti (sp?) in the top 5.

C'mon, folks; let's get premature!
I'd put Bruseghin in there if I had any idea of his form. He usually comes to play at the Giro, though, so could be good bet. Actually, with the way things are shaping up with the stages I wouldn't be surprised to see a fit(?) Bruseghin ahead of his more favored teammate.
