    Looks like a good route with some historic cols and a fair amount of time-trialing - unfortunetly, the big favorites for the TdF will probably still skip it
    1980's - Centurion
    1990's - Peugeot
    2000's - Specialized
    2010's - Bianchi

    BMC has publicly made it clear that next season will be their last with Evans as their GC guy before passing the torch to TVG. What I would really like to see would be BMC sending Cadel to the Giro for the win and then have him mentor TVG in the Tour with TVG as the protected rider. This course looks good for Cadel and I would personally be most impressed with him taking a Giro in his last year as the protected rider rather than the Tour. He really lit up the Giro a couple of years ago and I missed him in the Ardennes this year. I think it would be way more exciting to bag a classic and go for the win in the Giro than to base his whole season around a Tour that he probably won't win. That's what I would like but I'm pretty sure it won't happen.
    I like when you get to that point and I donít know if itís the endorphins kicking in or what, but you realize youíre so far from where you started, that youíre finally really somewhere else, a completely different place.

    I can already now see Basso set up his winter training for endless grinding miles so he can diesel the competition to death.

    I can't wait. This is by far my favorite GT. All the hills!

    As far as predictions go, it is hard to tell. Every team is going to emphasize le tour, as always. So, who knows - i can say that this will be very exciting.

    Now it's Le Tour's turn... of course with the 100th running next year, all the "A" riders will want that win.

    I think, since it is the 100th running, they should use the route from the first tour. And the equipment too! Wouldn't it be fun to see the riders have to jump of the bike and flip the wheel to change gears? Carry spares over their shoulders? Stop at a cafe for food?

    What a blast!

    Am I the only one that always though that the Tour was (is) soooooo boring if compared to the Giro...?

    Since Contador was at the presentation, does that mean he's riding it too?

    He says he hasn't ruled out riding the Giro, so I guess we'll see. However,when it comes time to decide, I bet he will skip it to focus on the Tour.

    Hope we get Contandor vs Wiggins at the TDF. That would be an epic battle on the 100th edition.
