And now the real Tour de France starts.

Your predictions? I hope for some fireworks already on Port de Pailheres and then on Plateau de Bonascre. I think we can see gaps bigger than in 2003 where all the principal contenders were pretty much on the same level.

AC to win, AS to show some weakness. Outsiders are Samu and Basso (he finally must show some attacking form).
