    Although - if Rogers has a bad day early on, I'll replace Basso with Tony Martin.

    same here, but I also think that Andy could get the 1st place

    Everyone has a right to an opinion. However, this does not mean that one's opinion is right.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here

    1)Basso
    2)Contador
    3)A. Schleck

    I think Ivan has more to prove, and the team to back him up.

    If only Lance would get out of the way, I would pick Kloden to win. I think he's the strongest out there right now. But Lance will not get out of the way, so . . .

    1. Contador
    2. F. Schleck (Andy can't TT. Frank can.)
    3. Kloden

    No.

    In all serious, I've given up on him. Just doesn't have "it". You can throw Levi in that group of very good riders who just don't have "it" to win a GT.

    Unless Alberto has a bad day on the cobbles he's probably got a lock on yellow. Of more interest is who will get the Green jersey.

    I figure it will be Contador, A. Schleck, and F. Schleck. Who I would really like to see though are Robert Gesink, Gerald Ciolek, George Hincapie, and Tony Martin.

    1. Lance
    2. Schleck (either one but more likely Frank)
    3. Basso

    I think Contador will lose time on the cobbles, probably 1-2 minutes.
