Last year I was all gung-ho and stuff on-account-a I was actually going to the race and what not, so I painstakingly built my very first RR Preview post. This year, Q.T. with the family prevents that, but since I see noone has mentioned it, I figured I'd throw a thread out there to document some thoughts.
cyclingnews has a startlist here.
pdf of TT here.
UPDATE: If anyone has links to tickers or video or whatever...let me know and I'll add them here.
Update #1: Podium Insight will have coverage courtesy of Lyne. Follow her tweets @podiuminsight.
My quick thoughts are these:
1) Last year, Garmin was loaded and failed. In retrospect, I believe the plan was to work for Danny Pate the whole time.
2) Garmin looks like it still has the team that can deliver Pate, but
3) BMC is riding with form and motivation AND with Hincapie's future move, I think they might be the team to beat.
With that, I'd like to open the floor for discussion.
