Can’t see past a Froome, Porte, 1-2 with Contador in third.
Cav will pick up three oor four stages, but Sagan will chase any point on any stage to take green.
Voeckler for polka dot – probably have the same frame ready in the van (I met him last year at the TT as the mechanics were prepping the bike for the last day).
TJ will look very impressive again this year.

The Angry spider froome has to be top choice for podium.
Clenbutador for second. No idea on third.
Think the giro might be too much too recently for Evans to shine this year. But who knows.
Schleck will complain his way into a poor finish.
Be nice to see cav get green and voeckler get kom.Posted 4 years agosurroundedbyhillsSubscriber
His fellow riders can’t stand him by all accounts
Don’t know if this is just media nonsense, he gets called “Hollywood” as they sometimes reckon he play acts at being out of it then suddenly rallies and head off on a breakway. There was a big interview with him in Cycle Sport last year, he is a very private man who keeps himself apart from the other racers. At least he doesn’t moan his t’s off like Cuddles “this is tooo hard” or Schleck “who want to win a bike race downhill?”Posted 4 years agollamaMember
I would like to see Evans up there but I must have been watching a different Giro because although he did well, he was not really with the leaders when in came to the tough climbs, and there are a lot of those this year.
It’s a shame Nibbles is not in it, the only one to beat Froome this year, and a class above in the Giro.Posted 4 years agobuzz-lightyearMember
With Sagan in green.
My prediction too.
I would like to see Cuddles on the podium – few riders are quite so gutsy as Cadel who grinds his way into contention with little assistance from his team. The fact he’s not media friendly adds to his appeal!Posted 4 years ago
why does everyone forget about Cadel Evans?
surely he’ll be up there again? he’s built for the tour.
He put in a pretty massive effort to get 3rd place in the Giro, reckon most of think that may of taken too much out of him. He’ll be top 10 for sure, probably top 5, but a podium is probably beyond him in my opinion.Posted 4 years ago
