Bradley Wiggins (Sky Pro Cycling)
The 32-year-old Wiggins has struggled to live up to his fourth-place finish at the 2009 Tour. But with three summit finishes and over 100 kilometres of time trialing, this year’s course suits him well. He defeated Cadel Evans earlier this month at the Criterium du Dauphiné—an important pre-Tour event—and now has three impressive stage-race victories so far this season. In a wide-open race with a long list of contenders, he’s at the top.
