Until the 70′s it was common to race on gravel roads, but the Paving of the Planet has led to nearly every road being graced by smooth, black tarmac. As is the case with most things, once we are shown the easy path, it is difficult to return to more arduous ways. So it is with gravel roads; we take measures to avoid unpaved roads and in doi...

  1. Bit of a crapshoot but i want armitsead to be up there and for a member of the Honda-Wiggle team to be thereabouts too. Stevens is pretty good too so i’ll tip her for the win. VSP PICKS: 1. Stevens 2. Armitstead 3. Shnitzmeier 4. Gunnewijk 5. De Vries »

  1. Hopefully this is the start of a Big season for Thomas where he really puts his stamp on the cobbled classics. Looking at the Sky team they are full of classics studs so any one of them could be there in the finale. Terpstra is supposed to be going well a… »

  1. Bit of rethink after seeing some of the climbs involved kicks valverde off the top five with J-Rod and Contador in. VSP PICKS: 1. Gilbert 2. Uran 3. Contador 4. Nibbles 5. Rodriguez »

  2. Bit of a crapshoot from me. Can’t help but tip gilbert for the win and with their great work in Piemonte Uran and Henao have to be in there somewhere. Nibbles will be after revenge for worlds but will fail as ever with valverde there or thereabouts too. … »

  1. I just picked a bunch of guys that can get up short climbs and finish pretty rapidly, please don’t let unrepentant scumlord valverde get the win. I’d like Boss-Hog or Henao to get it, someone from the ‘underdog’ nations but i reckon the belgians have the … »

  1. This is going to be one hell of a race. Froome vs Contador vs J-Rod for the honours, all three have a punch going up hill and two ave something to prove (Froome that he can win and contador that he is still top dog). Getting nationlistic i hope that froom… »

  2. Bit of a crapshoot with my limited knowledge but i do know that Vos is a beast and that Cooke will almost inevitably be up there as a lone wolf. Armistead led out by Laws for 3rd and stevens continuing a good year. Bronzini thrown in cos i reckon i shgoul… »

  1. This one’s easy. The course is clearly set up for a sprinter so the top four will of course be the top four sprinters! Sagan will have no support but will still podium but won’t be able to beat more experienced sprinters with devoted teams. Cancellara can… »

  1. Rolland to initiate a move early on to get some time and go for the prestigious stage win, with Voeckler’s win today as extra motivation giving Europcar 2 stages at the tour and keeping them the darling team of the french. Evans and Nibali will have joine… »

  1. What an great article frank, you really have excelled yourself. I don’t know where you get this stuff from but it really strikes a chord, after a long, hard ride yesterday with plenty of V that left me lying on the floor with my eyes closed for a few minu… »

  1. First? Here are my preliminary picks, possibly subject to alteration before the event… In fact i’m sure there will be plenty of alteration as this is bloody hard, looking at the start list there are a number of unknowns that are usually up there in th… »
