    Tour de France: Who will win?

    Tour de France: Who will win?

    I think Alberto Contador (Spain) is the favorite. He rides for the Astana team and is a teammate of Lance Armstrong. I think Armstrong could be a contendor. Could be interesting if Armstrong and Contador are close. I have a hard time believing Armstrong came out of retirement to ride suport for Contador.

    Can we create a CyBookie event for this?

    I think Contador is positioned well and has to be considered the favorite. Keep in mind that Lance is there to build awareness and support for his cause first and the race second. He has said that there is one bit of unfinished business for him on the second to last stage - Mont Ventoux. He wants that stage. Otherwise, and as he put it himself, he will be the strongest "domestique" on any team in the TDF.

    Contador, Andy Schlek and Cadel Evans. Armstrong Could play spoiler, but I think Astana will want to prove something with Contador since he wasn't allowed to defend his title last year.

    Viva le Tour!
