    They all flunk random blood tests in the first week.

    Valverde crashes out
    Menchov does nothing
    Frank whines and cries the whole race
    Voigt gets in most break aways but fails to win a stage
    Wiggins does ok, but Froome does better and loses the Tour because he had to pull for Wiggo.
    Scarponi get's pulled after a doping investigation is opened by CONI
    Cadel, Hesjedal, Froome for the top 3

    Hiding from the stupid
    Wiggo wins
    Cadel drags the rest of the best for most of the race
    Voigt crashes at 60mph
    Somebody crosses 6 lanes to take out Cavendish, he still wins a bunch of stages
    Sammy Sanchez and Chris Horner win at being awesome
    Bob Roll says scintillating a lot

    Well after first stage seems Wiggins got 10 seconds lead against Evans , other else i`m so proud for Spartacus he won the stage even he came after a serious injury . Hope he will be healthy for Olympic games cause he deserve another gold medal

    Lots of crashes taking out my favorites :( I'd love to see Hesjedal do well, but he went down hard today (F. Schleck was in it too). Cancellera looks good in yellow, but I know he will loose it soon too.

    Surprised to see Farrar blaming the wrong guy. The video makes it pretty clear that he was trying to bash his way into the Argos train when Petacchi moved over into Farrar's front wheel.

    Major bummer to see Ryder lose so much time. I don't think he would have won but he would have kept it interesting.

    Shaping up to be a battle between Wiggins and Cadel. I'm giving Cadel a slight edge right now - Wiggo's sideburns create just enough aero drag to make the difference.

    Farrar can't do it with the big boys. Time to reinvent himself as a classics rider, or something. He's like the Tom Danielson of sprinting...if he wasn't an American, I'd have never heard of him.

    Sky is starting to look a little like US Postal used to in the mountains. Will be interesting to see how that shapes up, especially with the refil...er, I mean rest day coming up.
