2019 Tour De France

Who's your pick for this year's Tour? No Chris Froome. No Tom Dumoulin. Only one individual time trial of 27km. 3 big days in the mountains before the final stage. I think this is made for MoviStar. I know he isn't team leader but I'd like to see Mikel Landa on top of the podium. Anyway, I hope anyone that watches enjoys the spectacle and the scenery. I hope the best man wins.

  • 3201873275?profile=RESIZE_710xWould love to watch.a race with these bikes

    • I wonder if those bikes are gender specific - the supporting strap is from front to back on the women's version.  

  • Lance Armstrong 

  • Imagine having a crash while your strapped in like that

    • At least you won't break your neck (by the looks). It needs some foot pegs on the back.

  • Adam, come on let's back the Aussies!! I think Caleb Ewan can jag a sprint stage (hopefully stage 10), Michael "Bling" Matthews can also win a stage before this Tour is done and I am hopimg to see Ritchie Porte on the podium in Paris!!

    • Caleb's riding well and I'm glad he's with Lotto given their support sprinters in the past. Probably just has to pick the right wheel to follow. Given his explosive power he could probably overhaul Sagan if he manages to get onto his wheel.

      • I reckon Caleb has the most power of any of the sprinters - as you say, he just needs to find the right wheel and victories will come - it's only a matter of time and experience..

    • Of course I'd love to see the aussies do well. Those two guys you mention are a real chance for a stage win but they have some pretty stiff opposition in the sprints. Unfortunately I think Richie's best days were in the service of Froome.

      TBH the overall winner is going to be decided in those last 3 days and I'm liking the fact that Movistar have been very quiet thus far. I haven't seen the overall classification but hopefully their 3 climbers aren't too far back.
