Daily Peloton publishes Tour preview
As the team lineups continue to be announced, The Daily Peloton offers a roundup of the teams they think can make a run at the overall GC for this year's Tour de France.
As expected, they give props to USPS and T-Mobile, but the author predicts that Phonak won't be able to hang during the 3rd week, isolating Hamilton on the last mountain stages.
Euskaltel-Euskadi gets rated an enigma. What's Zubeldia's job this year? Can Mayo do enough in the mountains to cover for the time he'll lose on the long and team time trials?
Looking at results so far, I think the author gives particularly short shrift to CSC, which has been arguably the strongest team in the world through the spring. Like him, I'm not sure how to rate the Liberty Seguros team riding to support Roberto Heras just yet.
