Good stuff.

Predictions:

Zabriskie, Leipheimer or *crossing fingers* one of the US National Team kids pull out a stage win at some point.

Hushovd for the points win, Rassmussen for the KOM and Basso for the overall. Bettini and Leipheimer podium...

Predictions? I am terrible with these, but what the hey:
Prologue Levi
Stage 1 Haedo
Stage 2 Brown (will there be controversy this time, or will he have already been Flicked??)
Stage 3 Hushovd
Stage 4 Bettini
Stage 5 Dave Z. (Might be to short for him. Cancellara and Basso both will do well here)
Stage 6 Chris Horner (why the heck not? )
Stage 7 Stuart O'grady or Tony Cruz

KOM I think Danielson might try for this one. I will bet the Chicken Won't get it. There are too many climbers in the race and it is too early in the season for Rasmussen.

Sprint Jersey to Hushovd

Most aggressive to Chris Horner (Or to Graeme Brown depending on how aggressive is defined)

Young??? Devine maybe??

Overall? top 3 Basso (or Levi depending on who Disco is working for), Zabriskie, Cancellara.


Ok, I would be happy if I got even one right!

Zabriskie for P, TT, and GC.

I'd love to see Bettini win in San Jose with a huge attack over Sierra Road.

Nope. No pressure on Haedo at all.

Interesting lineups. I wonder who CSC plans on putting forward as their leader. Voigt? Same with Discovery for that matter. I doubt they'll ask too much effort of Ivan or Levi. Maybe they'll give the nod to Tommy D?

No tripod... too limiting for action coverage. But I will be using a monopod this year. It will help temper my excitement behind the camera.
