I think you could slot Cadel Evans in there somewhere. Other than that it is a reasonable list. Basso will win by 4 minutes.

Nice list but I would put Landis a bit higher than that...not that I like him or anything.

1st. Ivan Basso
2. Vinokourov (If his team can support him)
3.Ulrich (the big German will make a strong come back)
4.Landis
5.Valverde
6.Popovych
7. Botero

Nice list, but I thought you were going to give me tips on how to win the TDF?! False advertising!
I asked Eddy Merckx a couple of years ago, he asked me: "Do you have a bike". So i guess that should be enough..:D

I"d put Boonen at the top of the sprinters list. The way he's been winning this year, unless he crashes I'd say he's in great form.
And Basso looks great!
