OPINION

Will Bradley Wiggins win the Tour dr France?

Seeing the pictures on the newly launched Team Sky official website (the supporters site here is well worth a look too by the way) started me dreaming... could this year be the year a Briton wins the Tour de France?

My initial thoughts were sadly not. Despite the clearly glitzy launch (which no doubt Dave and Tony are enjoying a prawn sandwich at right now!!) I cannot see where the riders are to support Bradley Wiggins to the yellow jersey are.

In addition I cannot see where he will gain time on Contador, or certainly enough of it to defend his position in the mountains.

So for me Bradley will not be a grand tour winner in 2010.
