I figured with our discussion on the TdF Oakley post by Shade Station, I would create a topic for us to talk about (and hopefully not spoil) the upcoming Tour de France . I think we all agree that Chris Froome is the favorite leading up to the Tour with Contador being his main rival. Who else do you all see as a threat or wild card for the overall GC? I think Andy Schleck will have a good tour. Cadel Evans will ride strong but he never attacks. I'd like to see TJ van Garderen possibly take over the leadership role for BMC if he is riding like he did last year and Cadel is struggling. I also hope that Brent Bookwalter can work his way into a break or have a really strong TT and take a stage win. Of course it would be great if Jens Voigt got a stage win. You know he will be in the breaks.
