I picked Greipel, but I'm hoping something funky happens so that non-sprinters get involved.

Maybe some kind of crash or wind break where a group of 15 riders end up gaining 40 seconds on the first stage... with the big name guys who weren't going to put effort in all of a sudden are all ahead in the race.

It would be fun if Valverde, Evans, and Armstrong all got 40 seconds on the first stage. All of a sudden they might get thoughts of winning and it would no longer be a training ride for them.


Greipel - (probably) best sprinter, (probably) best team and (probably) looking for a notable victory to remind people HTC aren't just The Cav Show.
