Last year was all about Contador and Leipheimer, the Discovery boys who placed 1st and 3rd. This year, their new team, Astana, was not picked to participate by tour officials. I would say the yellow jersey could go to anyone. Of course, the Aussie, Cadel Evans is the favorite considering he was runner up last year.
I think I will be cheering for Team Columbia. Not only because they are an American team and "Big" George Hincapie is a team member, but because I am on the team for the TdF KAL. Yay!
I started my project this morning as soon as we turned on the tour at the beginning of Versus' coverage. Phil and Paul's commentating makes it easy to knit and "watch".
I started my second Clapotis ( link in sidebar) with some really soft and yummy Malabrigo laceweight.
Here's my progress so far:
I am participating in the Green Jersey "competition" so my goal is to get this finished by the time they roll into Paris on July 27th.
