It's getting closer and closer. I'm not an expert of bicycle racing but I look at the result of tdf in great interest. I understand that first week of road course are not that important to make a difference in standings except prologue. It also a chance for each racer to see how fit their competitions are.
In your knowledgeable opinion, lest's take five guys, who have ability to challenge lance for the first place. If any of them are GC contender, it's even better.
Who I should be watching carefully? Let's say, besides Jan.
Edit: Ok, it seems like the sticky is already up there.
