With the news of AG2R and Cervelo's new Tour kit I am tempted to take my road.cc jersey along to the big one this summer.
Our trip starts tonight when most of you sensible people will be tucked up in bed and ends next week with the Perpignan and Barcelona tour stages.
This year promises to be one of the best Tour's ever with a true top class field and plenty of sub plots.
There are a number of questions I will leave you mulling as my internet access will cease shortly (thanks to Virgin Media cocking up my house but that is another story).
Can Lance do the impossible?
Will Contador win despite his team?
How many stages will Britain win?
Who will step on Cadels dog?
How sunburnt will I before the Tour even gets to Catalunya?
The next three weeks or so will show us the way...
