any thoughts on the route? I like the medium hilly stages, and the lack of prologue and team time trial should keep time gaps small going into that hard few days in the Alps.

The tour 2008 looks nice but I don't want to think about the mess they will make to select the teams..

Isn't it back to the old format so no hassle, ASO will choose the teams they want. Or is it still regulated by UCI?

5 French Continental teams - any bets on who is going to be occupying the bottom rungs of the team/gc?

A route for the climbers for sure. Pantani would win it if he were still alive :(
