    Do you mean can he win the TDU?
    No. A sprinter or breakaway type rider who can punch over a short hill will win it. Armstrong will just finish with the bunch.

    +1, TDU is a sprinters course with some tours through the country thrown in.

    Exactly right.

    Last year it was a sprinter but I think this year the stage will be decided on old Willunga hill. Can't see a sprinter getting over that one twice. Yes last year Greipel did that, but they did the hill once. They will be doing it twice at the end of a gruelling 180 odd k's in 40 degree dry heat temperature. Someone who breaks away the second time round wins this. Someone like Sanchez, Rogers or Hansen or Lowe. The stage is similar to what LLS did in Paris Nice and the TDF. He'll probably do the same again.

    I think Lowe is a good bet. It'd be good to see an aussie win
