Tour previews coming hot and heavy
The Tour previews are everywhere today, and it's only going to get better: We've got Samuel Abt on Armstrong's greatest challengers (focused on Ivan Basso of CSC) and who will assume the throne once he's gone.
James Raia, co-author of Tour de France for Dummies, will be kicking off his 9th year covering the Tour from on the scene, and e-mailing (free!) his Tour de France Times to subscribers (subscribe here).
RoadCycling.com's David Cohen says there's just no way Armstrong pulls it off: He says there are too many gunslingers looking for this particular notch in their belt; somebody is bound to find the right combination to make it happen.
And Eurosport previews two of the races within a race: The polka-dot climber's jersey, and the sprinter's green jersey.
Chris Brewer predicts Armstrong, Ullrich, Basso in the overall, but goes more out on a limb suggesting CSC's Jens Voigt as a dark horse candidate for the climber's jersey.
