It's that time of year again - today's the start of the 2007 Tour de France.

Anyone have any favorites this year?

Discovery picked up Levi Leipheimer, an interesting development because they wouldn't pay him the big bucks if they didn't think he couldn't win.

Dennis Menchov & Carlos Sastre both did well last year and have big time teams backing them up so they could be contenders for the yellow jersey. Personally I'll be pulling for the Krazy Kazakh Alexander Vinokourov & former mountain bike champion Aussie Cadel Evans.

The Tour started today in all places, downtown London.
