This is where the tour gets exciting, the first HC climb of the race, the Col du Grand Colombier, awaits the riders today (fewer than finished the TT). I can't wait! Today and tomorrow should go some way to answering some of the many questions such as how will Sky handle the consistent attacks that are bound to come from those 4-5 minutes down. Who will end up working together to beat Sky and in the end can Wiggins/Froome be put under enough pressure to crack?
I've made my transfers but a heads up for those who haven't Di Gregorio is in jail and Matt Lloyd bumped his elbow so neither will feature.
What's your tactics? Are there enough KoM points to tempt you to chase breaks or is it all about the GC contenders? Does anyone not have Wiggins, Evans, Froome and Zubeldia in their team?
