So who have people got down for the yellow jersey, Wiggo, Evans, Schleck??

Cav for green?

King of the Mountains, could be Pozziviva

Who is going to win the prologue, my money is on Cancellera, Even after a broken collar bone.

Really not sure at this point. Wiggins will show his cards when they hit the mountains. I really expect  Cav to drop out to save himself for the olympics but i aslo expect a few stage wins first.
No idea on KOM.

I expect Sky to drive the earlier flatter stages to keep Cav at the front for the sprints. This would suit Wiggins as keeps him out of trouble. Wiggins will prob just make sure he loses no time to anyone for the first week and then put in strong performance in the time trial next Monday.

mountains not that high this year 2100m which suits Wiggins and Sky training. Most of chance for Evans will be on decents. Nibali god descender too but will struggle to make a good gap of more than 10 secs

can't see any GC contenders making gaps on ascents

2 longish TTs coming up Wiggo in yellow :-)

An interesting start, shame about the crashes at the end of the stage yesterday, did anything happen to the camera man afterwards?

Such an amazing effort by the breakaway, so close to doing the whole stage, although I think without the crashes they may not have been caught quite so quickly. Good to see Voigt on the front, such an amazing athlete for a 40yo and seems like a top bloke too. SHUT UP LEGS!
