Froome is in form
Can Contador find his legs?
Who you got?
I'm always rooting for Lance.
Ag2R-- even if they don't exist anymore I like the small local, especially agricultural, backed teams.
Where's that guy that started the 2015 TDF thread in April of 2015? I told him to get a year's head start on this.
This should be Quintana's year if he can get over his hesitation to attack Froome instead of just sticking with him.
They may as well give Sagan the Green Jersey now.
Maybe a Frenchman?
Kinda gone off Le Tour since all the drug shit was exposed. Used to watch every year but the magic has gone out of it for me now...j.f.
By the way if you haven't watched 'The Program' about Armstrong, you should it's a good movie...j.f.
So, you think that teams have not been using a competitive advantage of some kind for ages?
You are in the Lemond camp of: we were good, they are not?
I know that 'doping' has been going on for ever but 'Armstrong' really just spoiled the whole race over the years he 'won'. Before him at least there were different winners almost every year and the stages were exciting to watch, not just a procession...j.f.
for sure Mr. Armstrong laid a big turd on the sport. Still really enjoy watching the pros race.
As a recreational cyclist its a sport I can somewhat relate to.
Dope or not they still have to get up those hills
Still one of my favorite sports to watch and the scenery is
Ever hear of a man name Hinault? The thing against Armstrong is all crap, if you want to think it is valid, good on ya. He did nothing that no one else before him did. There is big money involved, the stakes are high, things are done to be sure they win.
Now I remember why you have 'clown' in your name. 'Discussed' Boston hockey with you a couple of years ago, hoped you would have matured a bit since then, but......j.f.
Among my favs of all time.
Froome. Assuming he can avoid crashing.
Froome looks like the best bet, he is in shape and has the strongest team.
Quintana has his best chance yet becasue of the lack of TT's. I agree, he has to be more aggressive.
He can ride away from Froome in the mountains. But his team??? Haven't looked at it yet.
If there are no major injuries it will be the two of them battling it out.
BTW, I get in a Fantasy TDF league every year. Typical pick your own team based on an assigned salary. Any team can pick anybody as long as you stay with in your salary cap. I will post the link when they start it, no limits to the number of people in the league.
It is run by Velogames and you can set up individual leagues. I usually join the Road Bike Review League.
Maybe I can start our own ADV league on Velogames if we have interest???
For those of you have stopped following the TDF I want to say the last 4 or 5 years has been some of the best racing I have seen.
Lots of good upcoming GC contenders.
Lots of great sprinters and the teams are really perfecting the lead out trains.
And then there is Sagan. Always has a chance to win any stage except a mountain top finish. One of the most exciting and entertaining racers in years!
Quintana might not be a useless Time Trialist:
