Marmite and Vegemite are both shit. Good to grease up your BB bearings only.

I think Porte will hang around a Team Sky and be the GT heir apparent when the dust settles on the Wiggins-Froome in-house squabbles....

I wish you guys wouldn't talk about delicious food when I'm on a diet. :cry:

Seriously I'd prefer it if you went back to talking about Lance Armstrong.

Lance what? You mean that guy who never ever ever doped and never tested positive and i should just assume it and live over it, according to his huge amount of american fans in this forum, less that a year ago? That Lance? Seriously? Get yourself a cake or a 6 hour ride better, please.

Many of his 'fans' on this forum weren't American, actually, and regardless of their nationality they were clearly few and far between.

Anyway, let's move on.

Pick for TOC??

The field looks pretty weak on GC......TJ? Does this leave the door open for a resurgent Schleck??

Has a startlist for ToC been published anywhere?

Also, a bit old, but glad to see a Chinese rider shine on a European stage:

Maybe the Amgen Tour of California could give Levi a special wildcard? After all, he was a good customer of Amgen* for quite some years.

* maker of EPO

Thanks for the link!
I noticed Saxo-Bank hasn't listed their riders yet, which leads to a second question:

Anyone have any knowledge of what Contador is up to these days? Is he targeting le Tour again? Will he ride ToC?
He has seemed to fly below the radar so far this year, with most of the attention seemingly being placed on everyone-but-him.

Weakest field in a long time for that race. Almost no one has a legit GC hopeful. I see Garmin is putting their dollars into possible stage wins or maybe even Farrar?

Well, someone's got to win the GC. They always do, except for about 7 years in the TdF that is.

He is not riding tour the france this year (LOL), he will focus on ToC and the Alfredo Binda gran fondo... LOL!!! Last thing I heard is that he forgot to ride his bike, but he has a cycling teacher...

Toc, toc, toc... Mac Fly, Mac Fly!!! Anybody there?

That was funny Prend. The biggest favourite for the tour and you question if he is targeting it?... Don't forget how froomy ate shit at the vuelta last season, don't bet all your money on him just yet. Berty is gonna be back at the tour with an amount of anger even larger than Lance's fans stupidity.
