This whole tour, including the races building up to it really just seem like a inaugural procession for Sky and Mr. Bradley Wiggins. Its great to see him good and so well trained. But he is even more boring, un-emotional and passionless than Armstrong or Evans ever were. From the first 8km it was a 21 day race for second. Dare I say it... this race needs CONTADOR to come and save it from a BLAH.
