I'm watching it now.  Pretty much the usual stuff but it does have me psyched for the race to get going.  One thing that was interesting is looking back to when Andy Schleck had all that promise.  Really makes you wonder what happened.

Plus, the show has me looking forward to see what Contador has in the tank for Froome.

I think it was a couple of things for Andy.....one was getting off the hot sauce and the other was cracking mentally under the expectations.

There were also apparently rumors of a drinking issue, but other than the one incident at a hotel, I never heard of anything else.

I am trying to brace myself for the 3 week onslaught of the clown brigade (Phil, Paul and Bobke). *shudder*
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Which stage produces the first crash that takes out a GC hopeful ? First ? Second?

I don't know how those guys do it, train and sacrifice everything for one race only to know its one slip away from all going down the crapper. I couldn't mentally handle it. The first week I would be a total wreck. I'd ride 20 ft from everyone.

I am pretty sure you'd be riding more than 20 ft BEHIND everyone. So would I.
