I may have missed a similar post, but with Simoni and Ulrich out of the tour, who are the favorites for 2nd and 3rd on TdF podium?
My votes are - Beloki and Heras, yes Heras. I think last year he showed he can finish high in overall GC even while domestiqueing for Lance, and he should be able to do even better this year, because USPS seems to be stronger in "spanish climbers" department. Lance will only need his help at the very top of the climb, so Heras will get a good time too.

If Kelme can keep their payroll going that long , they might have a few surprises for Mr. Armstrong..ONCE as well are looking very good....just because Jan is out of the fight this year, doesn't meen it's going to be a cake walk.

If Tyler heals, he may make it interesting. I didn't think that before, but a 2nd place in the Giro on a broken shoulder is pretty impressive. CSC has a pretty strong supporting cast as well. Still, LA will have to fall off his bike to not win......
Tyler = TdF domestique?MaRider

Isn't Tyler riding for someone else at TdF? I think Giro was his main focus for the year
