    Riders to look out for next year

    - Tony Martin: Impressive young all-rounder.

    - Cadel Evans: Will probably jump back from his disappointing '09 TdF. But can he improve enough to catch the likes of Schleck, Contador & Wiggins?

    - Bradley Wiggins: If he improves again, a genuine yellow jersey contender.

    - Vincenzo Nibali: Slipped under the radar somewhat, judging from press coverage. But he has impressed a lot.

    And of course, the usual suspects of Contador, Schleck, Armstrong & co.

    You can add Roman Kreuziger and Franco Pellizotti from Liquigas to that list as well. Liquigas won KOM and had 2 of the top 3 young riders (after A. Schleck). Nice tour for that squad. Like you said, under the radar.
    Everyone has a right to an opinion. However, this does not mean that one's opinion is right.

    there was an article recently that showed that most of the top 10 from last year weren't in contention this year.

    I am interested to see what Brice Feillu will do next year.
    When in doubt, style it out.

    Cadel Evans is old news, if he ever gets near the podium of the Tour again, I'll clean the drivetrain of my bike by licking it.

    Haha, quite true. I'm afraid he might have peaked at the wrong time - at the rate Contador & Schleck are going, he's going to have a hard time catching up.

    Brice Felliu
    Levi Leipheimer (10:1 odds say that LA recruits him for Team RadioShack. He raced valiantly, and I think he would have been climbing at least as well as F. Schleck, Kloden, and LA)
    Chris Horner (Got screwed out of a spot on Astana this year. I'm calling him as a dark horse candidate.)
    Nibali
    Astarloza

    some good choices above. especially tony martin. to finish 2nd by 3 seconds on the
    ventoux and turn in a top ten time trial-less than 2 minutes back of contador-on
    stage 18 is impressive. some others i'll be watching:
    haussler
    mikhail ignatiev
    jurgen van den broeck
    nicolas roche
    gerdemann
    maxime monfort
    christophe le mevol
