    It almost seems normal now to have a Brit as a favourite, and while i'll always prefer the personality of Wiggo, Froome is a worthy champion and will again be favourite.

    One hopes that there will be competition from Nibali and Contador, but the absence of Quintana is a blow as he was the most exciting rider last year.

    Anyone going to see the British stages this year?

    I'll be watching every stage on ITV.

    Off to Cambridge Sunday night (one of my daughters lives there) -up early Monday to watch the day's excitement!

    Should be lots going on apart from the racing. <ok>

    Saw it come through Maidstone a few years back but I would really love to see a mountain stage.

    Not too many mountains around Cambridge, sadly. :grin:

    Keep telling myself I'll go over one year, never get round to it. A mountain stage would be awesome.

    Still toying with the idea of hitting Paris for the final day though.
