Re: Guess the Tour De France odds

Cunego is looking very nice @ $10/$3 odd

Evans is crap. Valverde is no good at big tours. Menchov is overrated. Rogers won't recover from Glandular Fever in time to race. If Rogers races and finishes top 20 - he's on some good stuff. Schleck I have some question marks over. Dekker a possibility. A proper thread will be started up sometime in the next week or so when I get time.

Here is not the place. I don't want the public to know my advice. I'll tell you when we catch up sometime over a few beers.

Re: Guess the Tour De France odds

I know it was a joke - I ignored the second part.

I've made some people sick at work with my kinky mind - particularly 69ers and going down on women - giving advice on how to do it.

Re: Guess the Tour De France odds

I agree. Evans won't win it my friend. He did attack one race that he won which was rare, but he's shit.

Clearly the Value is in Schleck, Kirchen and Karpets.

I really can't see Evans winning it.

Just nowhere near aggressive enough.

I like Karpets @ 51 with centrebet, and myself @ 69 with your mother.

Re: Guess the Tour De France odds

It's nearly May and there's two months to go, here's the update on the favourites.

Cadel Evans 3.00 - Riding well in good form. Winning races

Denis Menchov 7.00 - Hard to tell his form. Havn't seen him anywhere

Alejandro Valverde Belmonte 8.00 - Won the Leige-Bastonge-Leige the other day and has been riding i ngodo form.

Carlos Sastre Candil 9.00 - Havn't seen much of him.

Michael Rogers 16.00 - Illness - hasn't competed in a few months

Damiano Cunego 17.00 - Doesn't want to ride the tour

Andy Schleck 21.00 - Good form - CSC's leader. Consider

Oscar Pereiro Sio 26.00 - Don't know much about his form

Mauricio Soler 26.00 - We know what a talent he is - havn't seen much about him.

Christophe Moreau 31.00 - Again, havn't seen much about him

Yaroslav Popovych 31.00 - Will be riding for Cadel - no chance

José Angel Gomez Marchante 31.00 - Again, havn't seen much about him

Thomas Dekker 31.00 - Riding in godo form

Vladimir Karpets 31.00 - Havn't seen much about him

Kim Kirchen 36.00 - In excellent form. Climbing well. Hinted to be High Road's leader due to the lowsy preparations of Gerdemenn and Rogers due to injury and illness.

Anything can change in the next 2 months, but at this point in time, Evans, Valverde, Schleck, Karpets and Kirchen are the men for July. The last 3 are excellent value.

Re: Guess the Tour De France odds

Interesting paragraph I took out of a story regarding Kanstantin Siutsou who won the Tour of Georgia outdoing Leipheimer.

Despite the decisive Brasstown Bald, according to Siutsou he is honoured to win his first American race for his US-based team and feels prepared to start the Giro d' Italia in GC contention. "I am happy to have this jersey for my team, myself and Bob," said Siutsou. "This is a dream to represent my team like this. I knew I was riding well, I'm here training for the Giro and then to work for Kim Kirchen in the Tour de France."

According to that, this won't be Rogers year. Considering he's sick and missed a lot of riding and has a hampered preparation, I think they have already made the decision to make Kirchen the leader considering this. If Rogers rides, he will be a domestique.

I might put something small on Kirchen now because his odds will come in if the bookies get hold of the fact that Rogers shouldn't be that price.

Re: Guess the Tour De France odds

Should change this topic to the 2009 Tour de France.

Basso V Contador - throw in perhaps Vino who is coming out of retirement to race the Olympics and may find a team now that Basso did.

Anyway, with the form Kirchen is in, I like him to take it this year. I seriously doubt Gerdemenn will ride the tour and I don't think Rogers will either - if he does, he won't be full fitness so I so Kirchen has it on his own and has reasonable support too. I think Rogers will ride for Kirchen is Rogers isn't fit enough to win it.

Re: Guess the Tour De France odds

You're onto something there Deccy. All it will take is one breakaway and Soler is a good mountain goat and can easily break away from the pack and they won't be able to catch him.

We'll see which riders are in form come July.
