Le Tour de France 2012 – Time Trial = The Battle For Yellow

-

Le Tour de France 2012 is a day away!

On paper it is going to be a race between Wiggo and Cadel, and it is hard to see anyone else good enough to match these two men … Time Trial = The Battle For Yellow … As has been noted everywhere, and ad nauseam, this is a Tour with over 90km of time trialling. Considering the miserable time trialling talents of the gun climbers in the race, particularly when compared to how good Cadel and Wiggo are at climbing, the race for third may well end up being a separate battle of the also-rans behind the Wiggins-Evans showdown.

There are three cracking looking mountain stages (Stages 11, 16 & 17) and a couple of other stages that may have a bearing on the final result, but part of the enjoyment and spectacle of the Tour is all of the other elements and protagonists of the race.
