So, Wiggins won't be defending his title at le tour, leaving the way open for Froome to ride as uncontested sky team leader. Gilbert WILL be racing though: some of the stages will suit him, so he could get his first win of the season.
The Criterium du Dauphine is underway - great solo win for Veilleux yesterday. Will be interesting to see what kind of form Contador is in: Van Den Broeck, Rodriguez and Sanchez also competing.
Tour de Suisse starts up next week, which is always a nice watch.
Tom Boonen has finally won a race this year (to be fair, he wasn't far off having to have his arm amputated).
