Daily Peloton previews GC candidates

Daily Peloton | Tour de France: Jambon Preview

One of the most entertaining web Tour de France reports is The Daily Peloton's Jambon Report, where they award their Golden Hams and Ham-gazers to the riders who ruled and drooled, respectively, during the day's stage.

Today, Locutus has their GC preview up. Some highlights: he thinks Chris Horner "is the team leader, and the team just doesn't know it yet", expects Brad McGee to take the prologue-that's-not-really-a-prologue on Saturday, and thinks Ullrich will lose serious time on the first major mountain stage, as he does every year.

Hey, could you bump the Volleyball Butt ad up to the top of the page, "above the fold?" I have to keep scrolling down to see it. Thanks.

So this year the excitment is really starting to build, (at least in my home). It will be intresting to watch Chris Horner in his first tour de france. I mostly follow the pro cyclists so I don't know that much about Horner although this year I have seen him on OLN several times.

Tour Guy ....

They don't call Horner the mouth for nothing. If he talks with his legs, great, but I suspect he's going to get popped.

What does GC mean????

Jim, "GC" is for "General Classification," the race for the yellow jersey or the overall race win.
