Only change I see in top 10 is Uran taking Bardet for 2nd and Contador taking 9th from Barguil. Froome should win. But looking at how technical course is, his gap will be not big.

Last chance for Froome to get a stage win but Roglic is probably the fav.

It diminshes a Grand Tour victory if the winner is unable to win at least one stage

Watch out for Kwiato. Rooting for him to get a stage win.

What do you think about Jasha Sütterlin and Stephen Cummings?
No and no. I think its between Kwito, Froomey, Rogla and maybe Contador. Castro a decent outsider. Jasha i spent me thinks, this level is too high also and theres a pretty sharp hill.

In my non-encyclopaedic cycling knowledge, what planetary body has a result where post-ban Contador contests this as a win? (Serious question)
Medium-length, steep hill in the middle, at the end of a GT, form has looked to be improving.
So why not? He's had plenty of good TT results after his ban. I dom't think he'll win but wouldn't be surprised to see him top-5. The only issue I see is the many corners, I suppose he'll be very cautious.

Id rather not win a stage than be handed a victory because of DSQ.

Froome to stomp over all other GC today. Uran and Bardet will be close if aloud to start at the same time as Froome and follow his wheel.

Kwiatkowski will probably go for it today. Remember the team classification.
You really think that :
a) Sky care two hoots about the team classification, and
b) that the best three AG2R time trialists can take more than a minute each on average out of Froome doing his best and any two other Sky riders on that course?

With stage 1 in mind I have a feeling Froome may beat Roglic even being cautious in corners and on the descent.
Why, because Roglic might crash again?
not really, for the most part because this time froome doesn't seem to be fading in week three.
Then I don't understand your comment "with stage 1 in mind". You know Roglic crashed on that stage?
Apparently it's asphalt, though I'm a bit puzzled about how that's gonna work. They'd have to remove it pretty quickly again.

So... one question:
Why does a football stadium have velodrome in its name? Isn't velodrome the word for a cycling track?
