I'm guessing 20 riders tops over the Tourmalet and then a blood bath on the Hautacam.
I think that Menchov, Valverde and and Sastre based on their form and the strength of their teams in the high mountains. My recollection is it's fairly flat in the last few hundred meters which bodes well for Valverde.
I'd go with the A-hole again but todays road rash and soreness is gonna take a few days to shake off. Evans put in a great ride in serious pain after what to me looked like a fall that shouldn't have happened. What did he hit another rider's wheel? a spectator?
