Prologue preview

Time to stop the gossip and start the racing.

Today's prologue is dead flat, 7.1 kilometers or almost 4.5 miles. It's a loop course around downtown Strasbourg.

CSC's David Zabriskie is the consensus favorite, and he took an even shorter prologue at the Dauphiné Libéré. Other riders to watch are David Millar, coming back very motivated from a 2-year ban for EPO, and Brad Wiggins, who way back in April told the BBC this was his stage.

Live coverage on OLN starts at 8:30 a.m. Eastern.

On the web, you can choose from CyclingNews.com, VeloNews, BBC, Eurosport, Daily Peloton, or me for updates.

From the official website, you can follow intermediate time checks, the stage newsflashes, and the current stage standings.

Why isn't Discovery working as a team? They should be working to help George like they helped Lance.
