I'm thinking it maybe Tejay's year at the ToC, and I'm sure Sagan will light things up

I'd like to see TJ do well.

I'd love to see a guy from a domestic conti team win (a devo rider would be even better)!

madvax, why?

I know Chavanel is a bit of a dark horse, but I don't think the climbs this year will be much of a factor and Chavanel has been riding pretty well lately. I'm thinking a good TT and maybe a good placing in a break-away.

My thinking with Sagan is that he will accumulate bonuses via stage wins, but will not be strong enough in the TT/climbs to win; however, he is strong enough to keep it close.

I'll be pulling for TJ and think he is probably the best GC guy there, but I don't think this year's route suits him too well.

FWIW, my picks are usually lousy, but I still have fun speculating.

Why that, not why your picks.

"An attack from Michael Rogers (Saxo-Tinkoff) seemed to spark new life into the peloton with 17km to go, as RadioShack was quick to mark the move with Andy Schleck, who was looking more like his old self than in a long time."

Who knows, who knows, maybe this could be that defining moment where he returns to competitiveness. Let's wait for that TT though.

I'm thinking it's Michael Rogers again.
