2012 Tour de France: Velonews on leading contenders
2010 Pauillac: end of the time trial
With well under 24 hours before the first rider sets off in the Prologue at Liège signalling the start of the 2012 Tour de France, here is a good round up by Velonews of the contenders for overall victory. Naturally these include the two big favourites – Cadel Evans and Bradley Wiggins – but also there are profiles on the following riders: Vincenzo Nibali, Fränk Schleck (personally a very long shot given the amount of time trialling), Chris Horner, Ryder Hesjedal (winner of this year's Giro d'Italia), Levi Leipheimer, Alejandro Valverde and Juanjo Cobo, Samuel Sánchez and Denis Menchov.
