    TDF 2011 predictions

    I say Armstrong will have a podium finish. His tour sucked too much for him to retire this year.

    Haha good one.

    I say same 1 and 2, though I will be pulling for Andy. Third is the tough one... but I'm going to go out on a limb and say nobody from TRS will be top 5.

    I agree, Santa is too fat to be a climber... or much of anything.

    I bet Lance wants to ride the TDF again to try and redeem himself, but you can only say it's your last time so many times before looking like a complete idiot.

    Schleck will beat Contador next time if he continues to improve his TT position - he still has work to do.

    I'll be pulling for Christian Vande Velde to get into the top 5 again provided he can stop crashing out. Between him and Hesjedal I think that team will be a lot of fun to watch next year.

    I don't know who is gonna be second or third in the GC, but I think AC is gonna win. I think Contador, in all likelihood, is gonna win the next two Tours.

    I do not think he was at his best in this last Tour and I don't think he had a good team. Just imagine what he can do with a solid team?
    Regards,

    Jed

    I don't think his team was bad as people make it out to be. They were strong in the climbs, if anything AS team was the weaker team. I know Saxo Bank has strong guys on it but not climbers. FS was supposed to be there but without him you had guys from Saxo just killing themselves pull up the mountains.
