Not very surprising at all. Contador has a lot more fans here than the others, and fans allowing their assessments of what will happen to be contaminated with wishful thinking is a robust finding in all sports.
i'm a fan of contador and i voted for nibali. Nice logic right there
 
I voted Quintana. The man is a monster climber. Once the road starts to come up he will be like at home. He was second two years ago in his first ever TdF and he wasnt even the main leader of the team!!! And the team, Movistar, will be also a hard one. This year will be the one of El Condor.

For me its the other way around. I don't like froome at all but I voted for him.
 
Every poll on here, is always followed by questions of why certain people aren't in the poll, lol.

I think Nibali will win, I think he will do well in the first week, and also take time on the descents, but if Froome is in contention come Stage 10, it could be different.

How ironic.

Maria Sharapova is taller than Messi, yet that men are taller than women is a robust finding in all sports.

AC fan here so I went with him. However I don't even see Froome on the podium. I have it 1 AC, 2 Nairo, 3 Nibs.

If Vino was here I would choose him...FTW
 
AC for the win. A good case can be made for any one of the big 4 to win. A case can also be made as to why each one won't win. None of them stands out above the others, hence I don't think it is to much of a "fanboy" choice.

No Keldermerckx?

No GBM?

I'm basically good with anyone winning, as long as it's not Froome.

Alright then, Bertie.

1. Froome
2. Contador, hope he wins but his team sucks, Tinkoff sucks, and his recovery remains doubtful.
3. Nibali

Have to believe in Contador. I think he will have the yellow after the TTT (if not sooner) and never give it up. I would have liked to see Pinot or Bardet hold the yellow for a day or so, but it's very doubtful, hopefully they each get a stage. Quintana to be second to Contador.

Bardet in the poll? Are you french? At least it's then excused with being biased otherwise it's just stupidity
Your comment is dumb as ***. Will u ever realize, the polls are restricted to ten possible options? Always this bla bla bla ***.

Of course Mollema, Valverde, Kelderman could be in but so could be Bardet, Peraid and Rodriguez.

I really want to vote for Tejay.

I'm not going to, I just really want to.

1. Contador
2. Quintana
3. Tejay (I'm allowed to be a bit of a homer)
4. Pinot
5. Nibali

Froome gets a hangnail and pulls out.

I agree fullyt with Gigs post and I kind of am a Contador fan, allthough I consider myself a cycling fan not dedicated to a specific cyclist. It's hard not to like Contador as a cycling fan though so I do hope he will in the Tour, but I give the others a bigger chance.

This doesn't mean I will vote for Contador. If I voted I would most likely vote for Froome.

This poll is about who will win the Tour, not about who would you like to win.

I know... fanboys and girls still tend to vote for who they prefer to win....

1) Contador
2) Nibali
3) Froome

It's really going to come down to Tinkoff vs Astana. Never underestimate any of these Vino children. Froome will put in smashing attacks and get lots of time too. Big gaps after third.
