Sky to go ballistic. Cobbles stage to rule. Andy Schleck to surprise. Garmin to do crazy early-stage all-out attacks at least once, yet coming up short. JVDB to do a stealth top-6. Nibali to be the best of the GC-hopefuls on cobbles. Purito to win a stage. No breakaway to make it in the first week. Horner without that extra gear this time. Heavy-handed essays on cycling and TUEs to appear in German newspapers. Cavendish to reassert his position as the sprint king.
…and I’m cheering for Contador.
