Strap on your helmet! Hold the remote! The Tour de France starts tomorrow! The first day of the world’s most prestigious cycling race is the prologue– a flat, five-mile individual time trial through downtown Rotterdam. One-by-one, 198 riders will race against the clock. Don’t blink. It’ll take less than ten minutes for most of them to finish.
Who will win the day? My Euros are on Team Sky’s Brad Wiggins, but there are other obvious favorites such as sexy Swedish/Italian Gladiator and two-time Tour prologue winner Fabian Cancellara of Saxo Bank or Garmin’s proper Englishman David Millar.
