Who's everyone's pick for the white jersey?
Mine's Gesink. Only 8 seconds off Thomas. Kreuziger's already 2'17 down on Thomas but should be his biggest competition right?
Gesink won't have any competition as long he doesn't fall. Doubt he'll win by 45 minutes like Menchov did in 2003, but if he doesn't fall he'll win. If I have to name some I would say Coppel, Kreuziger, Rui Costa, Intxausti, Mollema or Taaramae.
Quite a decent week for Rabobank. Won time on concurents for the podium (VDB2, Basso and Sanchez). Only lost a few seconds against Evans and probably will lose some more in the next week but in normal conditions Gesink should be able to win some time in the mountains over him.
Wiggens, Radioshack guys and T.Martin, other guys who won some time over Gesink aren't really contenders for the podium, so that's all acceptable.
