Yeah I'd like to say Sagan but I don't know if he has the team to support him, but he will probably just follow wheels and then just destroy everyone at the end, otherwise I'd say Cancellara as an outside bet. I doubt Froome will feature to be honest even thouhg he thinks he has a chance. He's just not strong enough for a one off race like this.

TT - Either Wiggins or Martin with maybe Phinney in 3rd.

Womens I'd like to see Linda Villumsen win the TT and Vos win the RR

Oooh Bthompkis, I like ur RR pick! The ITT is the first exciting one in years, am actually really looking forward...
Wiggo- aiming for it, when he aims, he usually hits
Tony- the man these days
Spartacus- chip on his shoulder (see ITT and Martin chase down at Vuelta)
Phinney- local wildcard (lives nearby)

For the RR? Martin, Dan.

ToB podium girls, or should I say ladies, are a bit "classic", eh?

Did anyone notice yesterday Magnus Backstedt commenting Tour of Britain on Eurosport and mentioning that aero road helmets can save up to 30 watts while going at 50 kph, and that's one of the reasons increasingly more peloton riders are adopting them? I found those numbers quite :shock: :shock:

He's been coming out with all sorts of nonsense. I think he might be losing the plot.

Looks as though Astana will be ditching Corima and going to Vision for 2014. 75% of them are rolling around on Vision discs and carbon wheels at TTT worlds with no effort to disguise them.

Astana-Vision: could they be the Astana continental team?

Sorry for Viviani today as he tried to ride that bucking bronco up the cobbles. Where was the famed micro suspension and why was the brutally stiff Venge so planted ;)

I think Viviani had 10-11 BARs in his tyres :D

That was a good sprint show today. What a "leadout" from Petacchi.
btw. is Viviani a top sprinter now? Might have even won if he didn't hit that particular cobblestone.
