Dunno how much interest there will be in this race, but it's on the PTP calendar, so here we go...

Last warm-up chance for the stage-racers before the Giro, the TdR is 6 days long and includes a prologue, a team time-trial and some fairly lumpy in-between stages. ... /index.lbl <- startlist ... t&id=19124 <- another one


Prologue - Lausanne - 3.1km


Stage 1 - Montreux – Fribourg - 176.2km


Stage 2 - La Chaux-de-Fonds - 161.5km


Stage 3 - Yverdon-les-Bains (TTT) - 14.8KM


Stage 4 - Estavayer-le-lac – Sainte-Croix - 157.5km


Stage 5 - Aubonne – Genève - 150.5km


ADVANCE WARNING: If you pick your GC rider and he does not start, too bad. Tirreno-Adriatico was a nightmare.

    Moomaloid, stage 3 is a TTT!

    I'm going for:

    GC - Kreuziger
    Prologue - Cancellara

    You know a race has a pretty duff lineup when you look at a start list, get down to Francaise des Jeux and go "hmm, he has a chance". Very sad.
  • Stage 1: Remy Di Gregorio

    I would have gone for Christian Van Der Velde, but it's not clear whether it's him or Ricardo who's starting, so:
    Overall: Voigt
    Prologue: Cancellera
    Stage 1: Kreuziger
    Stage 2: Cavendish
    Stage 3: Saxo bank
    Stage 4: Voigt
    Stage 5: Friere
    (& cross my fingers that some of them actually start!)
