tour de franceLance Armstrong is the big news of the 96 edition of the Tour de France which starts Saturday in Monaco.

The Texan's return to the race that took him to the highest summit of world sport focuses all the attention and overshadows the other figures, as the Spaniards Alberto Contador and Carlos Sastre, champions of the last two years.

Seven-time Tour champion turned himself into a feud. Vacation was three years ... And these holidays already ended.

The big question is how could a rider of almost 38 years for three seasons got off the bike, at least competitively. Many things happened in this time the Spaniards built a dynasty ended and doping to become the main topic around the pedals.

Under normal circumstances the surname Armstrong should not appear on the barbecue favorite, on the age and the rust of course several months without competing. However, it is a cancer survivor, which speaks of his ability to overcome adversity.

ODDS TO WIN TOUR DE FRANCE 2009

ALBERTO CONTADOR -120

ALEJANDRO VALVERDE +1600

ANDY SCHLECK +600

CADEL EVANS +850

CARLOS SASTRE +1000

CHRISTIAN VANDEVELDE +1800

DENIS MENCHOV +1600

IVAN BASSO +1600

LANCE ARMSTRONG +225

LEVI LEIPHEIMER +400

FIELD (Any other) +250

No longer, of course, the unanimous candidate of years ago, which monopolized the pools over Jan Ullrich, the only one who threatened to stop his reign in those days of glory. But Armstrong's name continues to generate respect in the peloton.

Principality. The test most prestigious stages of the planet starts this time in Monaco, first in a race that every year offers many changes in the menu.

The mountain will be the main attraction of the 21 stages will take place until next Sunday July 26, when the curtain falls on the capital Paris. In this period there will only be a rest day on Monday, 20, a brief respite for the pedals loaded some energy before the final effort.

Will vie for two individual (including the morning in Monaco), a team, and seven mountain stages. This meeting will determine the name of the winner, the rest flat-fractions and the Mountain often have no-decision in the affairs of the podium.

The race will pass through Spain, Andorra and Switzerland, an international air that distinguishes the Tour.

The summit of Mont Vertoux on the penultimate day, will be the final order for the individual classification. And then we'll know if Armstrong has expanded its legend or returned to being a simple spectator in France.
