Not sure who will win, but normally a strong all rounder wins the TOB (see O'Grady et al) Hammond possibly?. Will be great to see some of the big teams like CSC - Bartoli!, Quickstep - Boonen! T-Mobile - Kloden, Aldag! and USPS - Azevedo, Rubiera, Lotto - Merckx! riding. Similarly be great to see some of the British medal winning track riders like Wiggins who I think is riding for Cred Ag.

Not going to London but will be somewhere on the roadside hopefully near a 3rd Cat climb on Stage 3 on Friday :-)
