Who to watch

July 1, 2009

Unless someone has gone down during last-minute training (not jinxing Lance and his altitude training in Colorado), these are the guys to watch in the 2009 Tour de France.

Andy Schleck, Team Saxo Bank
Alberto Contador, Team Astana
Mark Cavendish, Team Columbia-High Road
Cadel Evans, Team Silence-Lotto
Lance Armstrong, Team Astana
Levi Leipheimer, Team Astana
Denis Menchov, Team Rabobank
George Hincapie, Team Columbia-High Road

Here are my top four…

George Hincapie – Fourth
Cadel Evans – Third
Denis Menchov – Second
Lance Armstrong – First

Contador will likely crash out in the fifth stage and Levi Leipheimer will support Lance.

What do you think?
