Should we re-do top 5 picks now?

That other thread with predictions was started BEFORE the whole drug mess and I am not sure the picks ever really got straightened out.

Should we do a top five now?
Can Floyd the Biker hang on?
Does Poppo have a podium shot?
Kloden, are you there or not?
Cyril isn't real in the mountains, is he?
Does DENNY do it on the climbs?

Will the Levi fit?

So many questions....
Your top five listed here now?

The other list was subject to change through stage 4, so it was well after the drug mess settled. So the answer seems to be no.

So many Qs, so little time...

Should we do a top five now? - Sure why not, although it won't bring as much surprise at the first.
Can Floyd the Biker hang on? - Yes, unless that hip goes. How's yours doing BTW?
Does Poppo have a podium shot? - Yes definitely, no need for breakaways, just try and ride with Landis.
Kloden, are you there or not? - No, well maybe.
Cyril isn't real in the mountains, is he? - Yes, unless Landis to make life hard for him and others
Does DENNY do it on the climbs? - Yes, well maybe
Will the Levi fit? - Yes, absolutely!

Yeah, I'd been thinking that HipCycler has a big reason to root for Landis now...

I'm going out on a limb here, but I think Landis has it. I know, I know, it's early in the race, but I really think he does. He's performing solidly though out.

I am MUCH smarter than I was back on June 30th. Due to an amazing number of typos, the following riders were omitted from my "top five" list:

- Landis
- Menchov
- Evans
- Sastre
- Kloden

My prior list, with names such as Ullrich and Basso, was simply the result of an very complicated computer malfunction.

Back in June, did anyone that Sastre would be a contender going into the last week of the Tour?
