The Tour de France gets underway in a few hours. It’s a wide open race without 2 of the top three finishers from last year, defending champ Alberto Contador and 3rd place Levi Leipheimer. Good money is on Aussie Cadel Evans to win, but I don’t know. This year’s tour is more mountainous and has fewer time trials so it could favor a climber. With no real clear cut favorite, the racing will be exciting and unpredictable.
