This is breakaway day.

I'm going with Thomas Voeckler.

this is too flat for a breakaway, i'm going for a sprint teams win. especially if the wind keeps up, tho it may be behind them more tomorrow.

I agree that Voeckler will be in the break (this has to have even odds by now. He's always in the break), but I think they'll get caught with 15km or so to go. I'm looking Cavendish for the outside shot for the win.

I'm seeing a fairly ballsy move by Millar or Ricco.

Because Voeckler is nuts and the Caisse D boys will be willing to give up the jersey. I think the sprinters teams will blunder at least once...

Besides, it's just a guess. Isn't that what any of this is? Paying a little more attention to the profile, I could see TV not caring much since there are no KOM points. Bad guess, but there are going to be ~178 bad guesses today....and it won't be my first or last one for the Tour.

It's time Cavendish shows a clean set of wheels.

hmmm... maybe the strike that just temporarily blocked the break might help the break. we'll see in +/-7 minutes.

The break has a chance but until teams lose the radios, I'll always bet on the peloton.

The open "final 5km" seems to have a tailwind
