    Can’t wait. I’m off to Toulouse a week on Friday and will take in the stage finish there and the following stages in the Pyrenees. My money’s on Damiano Cunego to win but I think Cadel Evans will push him all the way. With Denis Menchov, Carlos Sastre and Alejandro Valverde all looking in good shape too, it could be one of the best and most open Tours for years. I predict Brit Mark Cavendish will win the opening stage in a sprint finish to take the yellow jersey.

    Which is why Jan Ullrich’s reaction to this year’s race can only be read as sour grapes! It is shaping up to be a really good, competitive race. I’d love Cadel Evans to win, obviously, but Cunego and Valverde are both looking very good. Look, I’ll be happy if it’s an honest race for three weeks! I’m envious that you are going to be there – that’s a plan for the future.
