    Probably the most open Tour in years with Froome and Dumoulin out injured.
    Team Sky (Now Ineos) haven't looked the team they have in the past this season with one thing or another happening to them and with no Froome they seem to be letting Bernal and Thomas fight it out as they did last year with Froome and Thomas but both are coming back from Injury and misssed warm up tours leading upto this.

    I wouldn't at all be surprised to see an outside shot win this years tour, Moviestar looked strong in the Giro and Landa looked to have plenty in his legs, he could we worth a good shout as he did look like he was holding back in the Giro for this tour, although team orders may come into play with him if Moviestar want him to work for Quintana, although the way Quintana has ridden the last couple of years it could prove a big mistake.

    TDF Starts tomorrow.
    Still open as it's ever been for years and Ineos are still favourites.
    Thomas has been playing it down, is it a front? I don't know but he's usually quite honest and hasn't done much since last years win.
    On this years form I can't see where the Ineos odds prices are coming from apart from past glories as they have won it six times in the last seven years.

    Personally I don't think Ineos are anywhere near as strong as they have been in the past, like I said previously I think Moviestar are the team to beat.
    I wouldn't rule out Mitchelton-scott either now they have added Simon Yates to the team, he's there to support his twin brother Adam and they usually ride well together because Simon will go the extra mile to support him and Vice-versa but Adam is lead GC nomineee this year.

    As it's so open I'm gonna go for Mikel Landa @ 26's and Adam Yates @ 12's.

    I'm ruling out the other front riders ahead of them barring Ineos riders because I've seen them often enough in the past and they have never fulfilled their potential.

    I'm going to add Simon Yates too @ 51 just in case anything happens to Adam early doors.

    First real test today in the first mountain stage and it's looking very similar to last years TDF with Thomas nicking seconds against his closest GC rivals, seems like he's playing a very canny game as he's been playing down his own chances for months.
    Todays stage also shown Bernal is not quite there yet against the best hence the reversal in his and Thomas's odds in the betting, if this happens again then I expect Ineos to demote him domestique for Thomas because Thomas will need all the help in can in the final week as Ineos don't look as strong as they usually do which I half expected tell the truth on this years form.

    Landa also gave it a good go today breaking away a few km's from the summit finish but it looks like the Giro may have took his legs even though he seemed to be holding back in that, seems I was wrong and it will take a monumental effort from him to get near the podium going off today's performance.

    Adam Yates is still there or there abouts but his team have looked very weak and without support I think we can rule him out, his brother Simon looks fcuked and I'll be surprised if he lasts the tour.

    If things continue as they are then it looks like a shootout between Thomas and Pinot with Fuglsang hanging onto their coat tails.
    The ITT next Friday could prove pivotal as Thomas (barring no accidents in the mean time) will be looking to gain as much time as possible on his rivals because he is a great time trialist having come from track racing, it's probably also the day Bernal will become his domestique thereafter.

    Forgot to add Alaphilipp looks to be on fire and looking very strong on the inclines, 11/4 for him to become King of the mountains looks a decent price even after showing his hand this week.

    Richie Porte also seems to be keeping a bit in reserve and full of energy, barring accidents which he is very prone too he could be a good bet for a podium finish but I can't find odds on that.
