Well kids, it's that time of year again- the Tour de France has arrived and now it is time for the cycling world to be up-ended with passion and controversy. In a few hours time, from the time I finish writing this, the Tour will begin with all of the cycling world's eyes staring at Rotterdam for the Tour prologue. As this Tour begins, controversy again swirls and the ugly specter of doping is again in the news.
Though I have not yet had the chance to read the full article, the Wall Street Journal has published a "bombshell" of allegations from Floyd Landis regarding Lance Armstrong and further unproven accusations of doping.
Even before that, on the eve of the race, Cervelo Test Team suspended its rider Xavier Florencio - allegedly Marvel flera hbtq superhjaltar pa vag breaking the team 's code of conduct regarding the use of treatments containing banned substances The ass creme has so much ephedrine that he might fail a doping test?
Is he bathing in the stuff or is the team A so paranoid of bad press if something happens or 2 something more sinister is really behind this expulsion.
AND we've now gotten so freaked out by drug doping that riders are resorting to mechanical doping and bikes are being scanned at this year's Tour!
Still one thing remains true; the Tour de France is quite possibly the gretest spectacle in all of sport and even with the sensational news and headlines, the next three weeks will be watched by cycling fans around the world with unmatched excitement as this year's race is arguably the most "open" it has been in several years.
We'll see what sorts of feces get tossed into the fan blades And now on to the teams and a few thoughts, comments and predictions. The team of two-time winner Alberto Contador and former vampire- "no really, I'm totally clean now, this time"- Alexander Vinokourov.
This is the team to beat, on paper. However, this could also be the team to have the most spectacular implosion as well. If Vino and Berto can work together and keep their team intact, then they should win the Tour. Contador is arguably the best stage racer of his generation, having already won all three Grand Tours Vino is about as predictable as a 10 year old after downing a case of Red Bull and chasing it down with one of those 3 foot long Pixie Stix.
Some will say that Contador runs the risk of having to ride the race alone If they keep their heads and actually work for El Pistolero, the race is his to lose. Bruyneel- the team director with the most Tour wins to his credit- is a tactical genius and his biggest ace up his sleeve is Chris Horner.
Horner is like a second Director on the road and in the race. He's supremely gifted at reading races and riders, so he'l; be an incredible asset to the team during the race. Lance is once again surrounded by the strongest team in the race. Love it or hate it- nobdoy else has the depth of Radioshack However, only Andreas Kloden has also had a foot on the Tour final podium and has proven his ability to be powerful all the way to the end.
Levi- "I'm not actually a Hobbit"- Leipheimer is a totally likeable dude, but he's proven fragile- especially with his bones will somebody give that boy a glass of whole milk and a block of cheese. It is a given that nobody wants to win this race more than Radioshack. More importantly- can Lance? Lots and lots and lots of money Sky is a high profile team with great riders who were all purchased with the goal of winning this race. There is a lot of great talent on the roster, but "Marvel flera hbtq superhjaltar pa vag" hopes on pinned on the affable Brad Wiggins.
I like Brad because he races on the track, but was his 4th place last year a sign of things to come over the next 3 weeks or was it a happy co-inky-dink? He's proven he's Marvel flera hbtq superhjaltar pa vag the goo between the ears to make himself ride well. Can his team support him for the duration of the race if he does have the ride Marvel flera hbtq superhjaltar pa vag his life?
Of the "contending" teams, Sky raises the most questions for me- they didn't exactly have a stellar Giro and have been erratic all year. Can they do it and bring the Tour's final jersey to England? Basso was once the guy Lance most feared in a race, but after serving a 2 year suspension for "nearly doping", he's now finally back but not as strong in the TT's as he once was.
Then again, this Tour only has one real TT They're good guys- you gotta like guys like Quinziato- but can they keep him in the hunt for 3 weeks? We'll just have to wait
Marvel flera hbtq superhjaltar pa vag see what the boys of "leaky gas" can do. Christain Vande Velde has bones made of balsa wood, or maybe posicle sticks. He managed to still make the top 10 last year, while riding support for Wiggins, after crashing and breaking a whole bunch of bones at the Giro.
Still, you just have to love this team and want them to do well. It's a strong team with tons of talent, so CVV should have great support, even with a contingent of the team there just to get stage wins with Tyler Farrar. Tyler is a good kid, who happens to be damned fast when he's at his best. He's now only missing a Tour win to complete his collection of Grand Tour stage wins. When you toss in Zabriskie, Hesjedal and Millar, the team looks like it can do a good job of playing potential spoiler if the main contenders spend too much time watching each other or updating Twitter.
Managed by former Roubaix winner marc Madiot, FdJ is a perennial fan favorite. They sometimes manage to get stage wins, but their chances of winning the Tour are marginally better than my own. Made up of awesome support riders and breakaway workers, they lack a leader and can only pray that they are gifted a win.
There are worse teams at this Tour, but only barely. I wish them luck because they're under dogs and I've met the owner of Lapierre- the bike sponsor- and shared an awesome dinner and conversation with him. It would be nice to see one of his bikes win a stage.
They eat broken glass with every meal and then chug down some good vodka to make them numb. Sadly though, they can't win the Tour with Vladimir Karpets.
Vlad has dropped his famous mullet, which held the key to his power, and is not really a threat. The other Russians- Brutt, Ivanov and Kolobnev- are seriously capable of stage wins, especially if the field gets lazy and lets them escape. Robbie McEwen is a little long in the tooth for a true Tour sprinter Can he still win a stage? Expect fireworks from this team and if that doesn't work, just hold on to your drinks at the after party. Nicolas Roche- sone of Stephen Roche- and Rinaldo Nocentini, who shocked folks by wearing Marvel flera hbtq superhjaltar pa vag for several days last year, are the stars of this team of otherwise unknowns.
Largely a team of French riders, they are possibly even less well equipped to win than FdJ. I'm pretty certain they can all ride better than me, but their chances are relegated to a hopeful stage win from the very classy Roche. Otherwise, they're chasing podium girls in Paris when things are all done. He's a quite and humble guy- likeable in most respects- which dooms him most of the time.
Can he win again? Can he get away for a stage win and save his pride? The other only real power on the team is in the tough speed of Thor Hushovd. Thor is a Norwegian sledgehammer and will crush most other riders in a sprint after a hard day in the saddle. He's won Green before and can do it again The team is made of guys who are almost all capable of getting away in a break and then winning a stage.
Will the team Marvel flera hbtq superhjaltar pa vag distracted by the issue? I would guess a little, but they're going to be more focused on how they try to get some wins. This team is built around the Belgian classics, not stage race- which is why Cadel Evans left them at the end of last year.
All of the riders are top notch and can do great things Nobody expects more than stage wins from this Belgian super team They are stacked with talent and will certainly be a factor in the race for stage wins, but not the overall GC.
They lack a leader because Marvel flera hbtq superhjaltar pa vag weeks in July are not as important in Belgium as the Classics months during the Spring. Now you know the entire story of Columbia-HTC. Sure, they throw in Michael Rogers for good measure, but it's really all about the Manx Missile. Especially if you ask him. Given that Cavendish won 6 stages last year and has had a crappy season this year, you can expect there to be a lot of pressure on the "Boy Racer" when things come to a field sprint.
On his best, he IS the best sprinter in the world- period.
I'd dare say, he's even faster than me. They have tons of talent built around Cav', so he should win if he's got the Marvel flera hbtq superhjaltar pa vag. If not, they have enough talent to hunt other ways to win stages And without Boonen this year again- though not because he likes a little cocaine, this time- the chances for wins are diminished.
