As TT predictions go, this one isn't that terribly difficult. There are a limited number of TT specialists to choose from, it's just a matter of determining the correct order. We haven't had the opportunity to see Landis ride a long TT in Europe so it's a tough choice between him and Dave Z but in the end I think the TT is too hilly for Zabriskie. Leipheimer has a history of riding VERY strong TT's this time of year so he may surprise. My top 5 in order:

Landis
Zabriskie
Leipheimer
Vinokourov
Hincapie

Leipheimer had a miserable prologue ITT, 15 seconds back. Upon viewing the video replay though it looks like his TT bars loosened and he had a cockeyed position at the finish. I expect him to do much better tomorrow.

I've heard some of the explanations before, but I still think it's kind of funny that realistic TT predictions have the entire podium filled up by Americans...
