It will definalty shakeup the peloton. I think Landis will win followed by Zabriski for second and Hincapie for third which will make him the de-facto leader for the disocovery team for the tour!. What are your thoughts?? Predictions anyone??

Head says Zabriskie or Landis. Heart says Millar.

Seems to have escaped the notice of the RBR audience that there's a THREE TIME WORLD TT CHAMPION CURRENTLY SITTING IN SECOND POS IN THE GC who is also contesting the TT on Saturday. Can anyone tell me what his name is???

That's my pick; Rogers, Gonchar and Evans could be in with a shot as well.

Some darkhorses: Lang, Bruseghin, Karpets or maybe even Chavanel.

Landis, Zabriskie and Hincapie make the top 3 - but not necessarily in that order.

Rogers, Menchov, Evans, Karpets, Savoldelli, Klöden and Leipheimer - complete the top 10 but not necessarily in that order.

Gonchar, Bruseghin, Julich, Millar and Popovyvch - complete the top 11-15 but not necessarily in that order.

Vandevelde, Garzelli, Totschnig, Padrnos and Ekimov - complete the top 16-20 but not necessarily in that order.

World TT Champion doesn't mean much, since the world's best TT'ers don't show up for the race. Rogers will be lucky to be top 5.

I think Millar's lack of racing puts him outside of top 5. He is also better suited for short ITT.

on paper I agree with many others, all-american podium:
1. Zabriskie
2. Landis
3. Hincapie

followed by Julich, Evans, Leipheimer, Honchar, Karpets, Rogers, Savoldelli, Popovych, Menchov, Moreau, etc.

Mayo loses 3+ min.

I think that this is pretty much the consensus.

Please, Dave Z is the clear choice

This long TT screams for Dave Z. Although there are no indicators of how he's feeling right now.

But look at the Dauphine TT. Dave won the 43 km TT by 53 seconds over Floyd. We all know Floyd wasn't at his best there, but I think he can win this one by 30 seconds and take the yellow jersey. It won't matter overall because he can't really climb with the big boys.
Hincapie will do very well.
