    +1!

    It would be great to see TJ compete with Froome and Contador for the win. Is the team riding for him this TDF, or for Cadell? Or will it be a wait and see who look's strongest?

    I like Tejay but he was not impressive in the Tour of Switzerland.

    Yeah, true.
    But I'm more interested to see if he is worthy of said fuss. lol

    Torrents aren't legal though. That is something to take into consideration, even though many don't care about things like that.

    Well, some torrents aren't legal but the idea of bit torrent is perfectly legal. Sure if you're pirating movies, music, tv shows or whatever - that's illegal. We're talking about a live sporting event that is televised poorly in the US. What other alternatives do I have, it's not like I can just flip on Eurosport and watch it. Instead I have NBC which shows hockey recaps instead of the actual race. I still pay my cable bill. I'm just finding another means of watching something that I can't watch here in the US.

    I like Froome's chances, I am not really going to pick a favourite for this year. As an earlier poster noted, I do think Rodriguez will have a good go at it. My current favourite Grand Tour riders are Tejay VenGarderen and EBH. I would like to see Tejay make a good showing and I think EBH is better suited for the classics. It should be fun. I find the TdF a lot more fun and interesting since the clinically ridden Lance years.
