Tour de Drama
The Dauphine reveals who is looking good for the 2012 Tour de France.
I mentioned - he's got a lot in front of him in the near future.
Another American icon is Chris Horner. To my surprise Horner did not make his RadioShack team's long list for the Tour de France. I know that he has stayed in the States to heal a nagging back injury, but not to be selected for the Tour is a mistake on Bruyneels's part - unless the wily Belgian knows something more about Horner's injury that isn't being let on to the rest of us. I wonder if Horner's agent is on the phone with other teams.
With a little less than three weeks until the 2012 Tour de France let the drama begin!
