A CLIMBER'S DREAM: REUTERS' Julien Pretot reported that next year's route is "expected to suit top climbers" with Spain's Alberto Contador and Briton Chris Froome the likely favorites. Defending champion Bradley Wiggins might find it "tough to contain the attackers throughout." Next summer's Tour will feature four mountaintop finishes and "some 65 km of individual time trial compared to this year's 101.4 km." Froome even suggested that Wiggins "could concentrate on the Giro d'Italia next year while he would be Team Sky's leader on the Tour" (REUTERS, 10/24). The London TELEGRAPH reported that Wiggins was asked at the ceremony if he would defend his title and responded with an answer that suggests he will play a supporting role for Froome instead. Wiggins said, "It's more than likely I'll ride in a supporting role for Chris. I just want to be in a successful team, and if that's Chris (who is going to be the leader) then so be it. He'll have to grow some sideburns though" (TELEGRAPH, 10/24).
