I read in Velonews that they re-did the 2008 course. Anyone have the issue in front of them and can confirm this?

I predict Millar whining because of the lack of a prologue. This is only marginally less annoying than listening to Millar whine about not winning the prologue.

^ Darn shame the integrity and traditions of the TDF being compromised for financial considerations. Who could have ever imagined that?

I'll go out on a limb and predict Evan's will do absolutely positively no work.

"Maybe I might have to modify my training a little," Cadel Evans, second in the 2006 Tour, to Cyclingnews when he heard of the minimal time trial kilometres.

Let's leave the roads open to traffic this year. Then we'll see who the best bike rider is.

I never look at the route, until the Versus guys talk about it on the day of the race.

I predict Doc Ray will use any doping incident or allegation as evidence of Pro Cycling's Certain Demise.
