starts this weekend, looking forward to it, its a bit of a blow with Schleck out of the race now as it will more than likely be a straight fight between evans and Wiggans, both good climbers and tiam trialists so it should keep it intresting

was lucky enough to get on Evans at 8/1 when the route was announced last year when Contador and Schleck were both expected to race

Dan Martin also talking part in his first tour so plenty of irish intrest this yeah with him and his cousin Roche, would be great to see one of them take a stage

Was thinking Wiggins myself as he's been in sound form and making all the right noise's about making a serious attempt at the yellow, my only question off him is his climbing compared to Evans who I reckon has more in the tank on the major climbs but Wiggins should claw any loss's back on the time trials
 
Cue wiggins to fall inside the first 8 stages LOL

Hope Evans wins it.
 
Would like to see one of the Irish lads win a stage. Would I be right in thinking Stephen Roche was the last Irishman to win a stage or was it Martin Earley.

I like your thinking SirThumbs Up



So, outside of Evans and Wiggins, who we looking at ? Sammy Sanchez up to much this year ? Will Frank Schleck do anything without the brother there ?

True that. I see Cunego is 300/1 , any idea on why so high a price? He won't win, but could be worth an e/w at that price.

Looking forward to the tour myself too, always some very entertaining days.

Ryder Hesjedal could is worth an e/w bet too at 50/1 - looked impressive winning the Giro d'Italia last month when nobody gave him a chance..
