    1.
    2.
    3.

    yeah no kidding! all these big names are gone gone gone...but I didn't have Vino, Wiggins or any of them tipped for the podium

    Cavendish probably for the green jersey, if he finishes.

    The last three guys still riding bikes will finish one, two, and three in Paris -- assuming that there will be three left.

    My picks are still in it, so I'll stick with them. If I could change one thing I'd put Evans in at 3rd overall.

    Podium:
    1. Contador
    2. Schleck
    3. Gesink

    Points:
    Cav

    KOM:
    Cunego

    I'm not interested in uniformity, so I'll just paste my predictions from the first thread:

    GC:

    1. Philippe Gilbert
    2. Andy Schleck
    3. Cadel Evans
    4. Fränk Schleck
    5. Alberto Contador

    Points:

    1. Philippe Gilbert
    2. Mark Cavendish
    3. Jose Rojas
    4. Thor Hushovd
    5. Cadel Evans

    Mountains:

    1. Who cares?
    2. N/A
    3. N/A
    4. N/A
    5. N/A
