    Place your Tour de France predictions here...

    I predict not one of you can name 5 racers in this year's tour.

    I predict someone will be accused of doping!

    I am a tour hoar! and have been since I was 14. All life stops for the first 3 weeks in July at my house. I used to have to ride my bike down to the supermarket to see the Sat newspaper just to know who was in the top 3.

    I don't think there will be any surprises this year, Contador takes it, until they strip it from him. There could be an American on the podium, maybe Levi, don't think Christian can (hope I'm wrong). One of the Schleck's and Evans could podium, too. 2nd and 3rd are up for grabs. Mark will win lots of sprints, I like him. I think if all the contenders (for 2nd and 3rd) gang up on Contador, someone could beat him. They should have done that to Lance but they never did.

    It should be fun to watch!

    It's a mountain bike forum. But I bet that Leal guy shaves his legs.

    I am holding out for a comeback of the best female rider I have ever seen on the Tour: Jan Ulrich. She was quite a competitor.

    Scary that you can name professional mountain bikers. Do you have posters of them up in your room?

    ^------ LOL

    I predict Bob Roll will ramble incoherently and that spittle will fly from his mouth on several occasions. I predict that Bobke’s head will finally be close cropped so that a swoop or comb-over is no longer an option. I predict there will be a French rider who unzips his jersey to uncover a skinny, bare, chest with just a small tuft of hair right there in the middle. I predict that Phil Liggetts voice will calm the demons in my head for the entire month of July…then it’s pretty much a crap shoot the 1st week of August…

    DVR is tuned and waiting…

    Yes. Screen saver on my 55" LED.

    Do you have posters of the shaved leg TDF riders/dopers and their Toyota Prius's in yours?

    I'm not sure. I failed to look at the greenie sticker on it. I'm sure it uses more power than a Toyota Prius.

    OT: Do slower climbers have to yield to faster climbers on the Tour?

    Think your pretty darn close here.

    here's my top three or so.

    Contador/Schlek/Schlek/Kloden

    Cadel Evans will explode on yet another climb in which he tries to attack.
