The Fairytale Stage Race: Tour of Luxembourg Prologue...with (hopefully) LIVE pictures

Its time for the Most Beautiful SSR in the Low Countries...The Skoda Tour of Luxembourg! The Tour of Lux always has an interesting parcour with a short prologue followed by some lumpy stages along with one stage that usually breaks up pretty well that decides the overall winner. The prologue parcour for today is only 2.6km but has a slight climb near the end that the riders will have to get over so some snap in the legs will be needed for a good time.

Live pictures, if no one is lying to us, will be able to be seen here. The first rider is off at 19:00 on the continent (1 p.m. Eastern U.S.)

Overall Contenders include: Leenos, Fat Schleck, Tom Dumoulin, Galland (6th last year), Van Goolen (7th last year), Bob Jungels, Leukemans, Elmiger and maybe Wallays...I know I'm missing a few in there. Full start list here

For the stage, I am going with Jimmy Engoulvent from Saur. He has won the prologue before and should be one of the favorites to take it this year. I predict Bob Jungels to be very close though...might be a little short for him. Jungels is on fire recently...he won the other Luxembourg stage race Fleche du Sud and just won the Paris-Roubaix U23 this weekend...by 3 minutes! He is one of the best youngsters to come around in a while...watch out.

P.S. There will be lots of photos in this thread...Luxembourg is like a fairytale land. Really cool stuff.
