    André Greipel singing "Bonjour le Tour". Maybe he should stick to cycling ;), but he's sure enjoying it!
    Go Greipel!

    Big shame that Robert Gesink fell so hard in Switserland and now isn't starting in the TdF. Putting my money on Nairo Quintana this year to beat Froome (wishful thinking).

    I have high hopes that Quintana will do it this year and maybe Contador as outsider. Yes as an outsider, we probably know the battle will be really on between Froome Froome.... and Quintana. Let's not hope he'll lose time again in the sprint stages as last year was the case :(

    Anyhow it'll probably be interesting to see how the likes of a young ambitious frenchman, Warren Barguil will do in front of his home crowd. Also that first stage ending in Utah Beach is just an incredible place to be in with a lot of history behind it of course.

    Contador crashes again @1.19, what a disaster for him.
