Froome and Contador

The 2013 Tour de France looks to be between Froome and Contador. Defending champion Bradley Wiggins will not race so it appears to be a match race between Froome and Contador. Froome is coming off a win at the Criterium du Dauphine while Contador crashed. “And this is a great test regarding what we’ll face in the Tour de France.” Croome said about the race, “I have won the Dauphine, and other races, before – but the counter goes back to zero when the Tour starts, and there will be six or seven major contenders for the overall victory. Contador, – Valverde, Rodriguez, Evans, Van Garderen and Quintana are all capable of strong rides.”

Froome is now the unquestioned leader for Team Sky after wins at the Tour of Oman, Criterium International, Tour de Romandie and Criterium du Dauphine. "I found in the past you can basically look after yourself, and you only really need to make decisions for yourself," Froome said. "Now it’s a whole different ball game, I’m thinking about all my team-mates around me, trying to make sure they’re all looked after, and that everything is working for all of us not just myself.”

The one threat to Froome in the Tour de France would appear to be Contador even though he is not in strong form. "Contador is the one that stands out to me as the biggest threat," said Froome, "He certainly likes attacking that’s for sure; he’s not going to give you the race on a platter.”

The 2013 Tour de France gets underway on Saturday, June 29th, 2013.
