Tour de France geek out.

For those of you who are watching the Tour. Who’s going to win? It’s still wide open.

We’ll know more after the TT in 3 days. I’m going to peg Kloden for the overall tho. He put in an impressive performance in the prologue TT and will try to limit his losses in the mountains. They’d all be fools to let Rasmussen go in the Pyreness tho.

And Contador from Discovery is looking really strong too. It’s amazing this guy’s acceleration on a climb. He puts in a move and just goes away from everyone. If he can do that twice on the mountain top finishes at Plateau de Baille and and Col d’Aubisque, then I think he can make up the 3 minute deficit. He needs to limit his losses in the TT tho.

Oh also just for kicks I saw this stage from a past Tour:

Now look at the time from Amboise to Blois. The pros finished that in about 45-50 minutes. Now Ted and I, didn’t quite ride that route, but we did travel from Amboise to Blois and we did it in about 3 hours. 😛
