Windy Stage 4 – Predictions

July 5, 2011

The time difference wreaks havoc with live coverage of the Tour de France, but I’ll muddle through. Right now I’ve got to head out the door with about 50KM to go in the race. Reports are for a windy finish and perhaps some wet roads.

The ProTourTips App is great for getting a feel for the live action and mentioned that the region the cyclist are riding in today gets 300 days of rain per year. SERIOUSLY!

Chat in a bit. *My picks for today’s stage are Farrar, Cavendish or Evans. There’s been some speculation that Contador will turn himself inside out to get his two minutes back, but I think he’s strong enough in the mountains to try and do it there instead.
