I'm at a loss - who to follow and get behind. I'm rooting for the Brits to get round, but none of them is a serious contender and it's massively open in the rest of the field.

Stick your neck out - who is going to win?

Rasmussen,
He's already got a 2min+lead on the rest. Providing he doesn't let a breakaway get too far ahead he'll be able to gain enough through the mountains, and not lose it all in the time trials.

There hasn't been that 'spark' of performance from one rider to entertain, though there are several days still to go!

We've (brits) already lost Cavendish. I hope Millar can stay the course. he looked strong today. Just finishing is a massive achievement.

I'm definitely behind Rasmussen, although that trouble with the drug tests worries me a bit. Of course Rabobank is a Dutch team, that does help.

Well the drugs in cycling has raised its ugly head again.

Good thing - cheats are being caught? Are other sports also this badly infected but they don't test as much?
Does it really tarnish the image that badly.

Is the Tour de France just too hard?!!!

Are you a club rider, semi pro, serious amateur have you ever been offered, or seen your team mates boosting their performance?

Would you let your promising teenaged son attempt to become a professional cyclist if they wanted to? Are they attracted to the drugs side?!

A Rough Ride is certainly one book that discusses just how hard the Tour de France is.
