what think we of Wiggins then? Has to be the TdeF favourite at this stage. A long way out I know but hes definitely the dominant stage rider at the moment.
Still a sap though.
I think Evans is the best all rounder. And barring any mishaps (or dubious performances) I'd go for him. BMC haven't performed yet this season despite all the big riders they signed so they'll throw it all at Evans for the tour.
I dunno if having to maintain such a low body weight to compete in the hills suits Wiggins for a 3 week tour. His V02max and power numbers must be massive though. Brailsford always seemed confident that Britain could produce a Tour Winner within a few years of Sky being formed. He must have been referring to Wiggins all along. Or else just lowing hot air, which can't be discounted.
