    This TDF is still wide open in my opinion.

    We're barely in to week three and only a minimal amount of time separates 1 - 6 on GC.

    Point being : we have an awful lot of racing left in this TDF.
    Tuesday and Wednesday stages are extremely tough stages.
    Given the corrosive effect of having raced for the previous 12 days, the time has now arrived for the really strong riders to play their hand.

    I think a CSC rider has to be favoured given their apparent strength both indivdually and as a team.
    They seem really strong and this plays to Frank Schleck and/or Carlos Sastre.

    Evans team (LOTTO) are not as strong as CSC : this puts Evans at a disadvantage.
    Sames applies to Menchov (Rabo) and Kohl (Gerolsteiner) : neither rider has great support in terms of their teams ability to control the race.

    Fascinating race nonethless.

    I hope evans wins if only to spite the dick heads who resort to personal attacks because there is no drugs or other skeletons in the closet.

    I wonder how many of the critics could pull such a stunning wife.

    I'd like to Evans win.
    But unfortunately for him, only Popy from his team seems to be the only one capable of helping him in the mountains.
    But theres plenty of racing left - who knows what may happen.

    On the topic of popy, he hasn't done alot in this tour, and he is definately capable of more. Maybe he hasn't done alot because he hasn't been needed. Maybe we might see him in the next two stages really helping Evans

    Current betting odds gives:

    Evans 33%
    Menchov 29%
    Sastre 11%
    Kohl 11%
    Schleck 8%
    VdV 6%
    Other 2%


    A bit suprising to me how low the CSC's are.

    How about David Miller flips out, does a Vino, wins Alp D'Huez by 15 mins then fails EPO and Blood transfusion test 2 weeks later, seeks sympathy due to relapse and checks into Betty Ford.

    As I said in the stage 17 thread - Sastre and the Schlecks. Voigt and Kohl need to blow up soon if they are human. Vandevelde blew up yesterday. If none of these riders blow up, somethings up.
