    Question Time to pick your TDF winner!

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Who is going dig into his suitcase of courage, make the cheeky moves and win the TOUR DAY FRANTS (as Bob Roll pronounces it )?

    Here is a link to a PDF file with OLN's (www.olntv.com) broadcast schedule: http://www.olntv.com/img/Tour%20Sche...%2029%2006.pdf

    Ivan Basso would be my pick for GC. I will be rooting for fellow Utahn Dave Zabriskie on the time trial stages.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa... Floyd's not riding??? As of 5 days ago, according to Floyd's own website, he was announced as the Tour leader for Phonak. I've been googling since reading Nanci's post and can't find anything saying he's not riding, and no one's posted anything at the bicycling.com forum. Floyd was my dark horse pic for #1, please say it ain't so!

    I haven't seen anything to that effect (that Floyd's not riding), and I have been following the news regularly.

    Where did you see that???

    Aha - well, sometimes we just forget things. Good call on Acevedo, though. I do expect him to be right up there.

    I was referring to myself. And it's only good for another 6 months anyway. Then I will be in the over-40 senior moment phase.

    Well, that got my adrenalin pumping. Ok, here goes-

    Who I want to win: Landis (Just cause he's fun and, man, can he ride) or Hincapie (Just cause I'd like to see him shine the way Floyd has after coming out from behind Lance's shadow).

    Who I think will win: Basso?

    I'd like to see Ullrich or Vino on the podium, though it's hard to tell whether either will make it. And, of course, I'd love to see Dave Z smoke 'em on the time trials.

    Regardless, it's going to be one damned exciting race (as if that hasn't been said 200 times already...).
