So, the presentations have been made in Rotterdam, the riders are ready, and we only have 48 hours to wait until the off.

Headline news includes the late pull-outs of Tom Boonen (Quick Step) and Heinrich Haussler (Cerv̩lo), who both miss the Tour due to aggravated knee injuries Рthrowing the sprinting field somewhat open.

Then there’s Lance, who claims that Floyd Landis’s drug cheat claims will inspire him to victory.
