    Wow! That's my home town and I won't be there. I have ridden these roads a lot as a kid on a bike... and later on a moped.

    Dave Z is the favorite no? He does better in the long ones than in the prolouges.

    Will a leader for Disco emerge? or will it only get more confusing.

    I can't wait! I've been working, so I can't watch the full tour, but they at least let me tune in a television so I can watch the screen every now and then! But my dollar is going to Dave Z. Some may say George, but I think if Z sees he has the chance to be in yellow again, he'll go for it.

    It should be great. I'll be up and glued to the TV at the start.

    Mike, are you Moving to Savannah? I live there, we have good cycling scene. Touring group, Tri Club, fast road group, organized prize paying training series, and the baddest ass masters team in the Southeast.

    Hey Smoothie, when and where are your training series races? Savannah's not that far from Jacksonville.

    I'd love to see Dave Z take it.
    I know that they go in reverse order of the current GC, but have they posted starting times anywhere?

    Hincapie is hungrier. Although he seems to be the team lead, there is still an unspoken competition amongst discovery to pick a team lead. A little competition will bring out a great race for George.

    The TdF official site says that the first riders should go about 10:00 CET, and the rules say that riders will start every two minutes. I think Julich will go around 7:00 AM (MDT), Zabriskie about ten minutes later, with the last rider going around 7:40.

    I think more attention should be paid to Landis. As much as I am pulling for Zabriskie, Landis beat Z in California and basically had the same time in the Prologue.

    Between Hincapie, Michael Rogers, David Millar, Z, Landis, and maybe Julich, a lot of choices for who will be wearing yellow at the end of the day.

    Landis is my first pick.

    Hincapie needs a top time if he wants to have Discovery pulling him up the mountains in the later stages - that pressure will either motivate him to excel tomorrow, or we'll learn he's not team leader material.

    Weather?

    What effect will the winds off the coast have on the riders in this ITT? Will the early starters have an advantage?

    I agree, DZ is the favorite... but I'm surprised everyone overlooks Salvodelli. He won an ITT in the Giro. He could sneak up and surprise; if not now, then in the mountains.

    As much as I like Hincapie, I think Landis will show up at the start gate on time and edge H and Z out.

    We agree on the same six most likely. I'd pick Rogers, then Zabriske, Millar, Julich, Landis, Hincapie.

    Bobby Jullich(sp?) has crashed and is out of the Tour. Huge bummer. He hit the ground pretty hard.

    I can't believe Jullich didn't break his hip hitting the curb with it at 25 mph. OUCH
