Would prefer a Porte win or Aru. Contador just winds me up for some irrational reason.

He's a cheat?
THat's a rational reason. But I don't mind Valverde too much. It's Contador's twatty pistol celebration, I think.

Also forgot Uran is riding. He won't win, but could easily end up on the podium.

BD and Trike - any tips?

Contador is ludicrously short.

It seems the fav's, now that Quintana has decided not to defend, are Uran , Porte & Contador. Hard to see anyone else figuring...but there is always a smokey.

As BD say, Porte, Uran or Aru....

He's not going to win, but Pozzovivo could get a podium spot with a bit of luck.

If there's a bet for last place finisher, try Cheng Ji.

Great ride by the Orica team to take out the time trial for the second year & put Simon Gerrans in the Pink.Not such a good ride by Sky. They finished ninth which puts Porte 20 seconds behind main rival Contador in the GC.

Could be a dull edition. Hopefully, Contador is in poor form.

Vivani takes out stage two however the Pink Jersey moved to Aussie Michael Mathews to retain it for Orica. Contador retains his 20 second hold over Porte.

Was a fantastic sprint by Viviani. Had no lead-out, but followed the wheels perfectly.

Desperately hoping JGK didn't tip Pozzovivo for my safety. Already 2 minutes down after the TTT and a crash....

Pozzovivo's crashed and out of the race. Wasn't moving and not looking good.

Mathews cements his Pink jersey with a mighty stage win. Seems Orica have the dominant edge at the moment. It won't last but the Aussie team continues to set the standard in the early stages.

Poor BD. Just can't bring yourself to say the word "Green" in a positive context can you? Smile

Great win for Mathews.

Well Stage 4 was outstanding.

Great win by Davide Formolo

.... and good to see Simon Clarke is now wearing the pink jersey.

Yeah, brilliant stage. That was Formolo's first professional win, surprising considering he is one of the highest rated youngsters around.

Yes. He claims that he knew that Formolo had won the stage but you would have to think otherwise judging by the way his hands went from celebrating one second to clutching his helmet the next after the Moviestar rider had a word with him.
