Beware the Passage du Gois

Passage du Gois is the start point for this years TdF.

Remember 1999?

Probably the best chance to beat Alberto. Would be a bit ironic if it caught him and a few others making a comparitive unknown a sudden favorite.

The Passage du Gois is awesome, but the race won't officially be underway when they pass it (
http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/...laces-to-watch). I understand why they're doing it that way, but I'd like to see it in action. I don't see how the Passage du Gois is any less fair than a TTT.


BTW, Geox was not invited, so Menchov won't be there.

Since it will be the start of a stage, Versus will probably not show it to us; but cut into the stage halfway thru.
