With the Dauphine starting today, the cycling season kicks into high gear as we run up to the Tour de France. And at this stage, I think Richie Porte has to be the favourite for the Tour de France. Both Froome and Contador have had fairly subdued early seasons, devoid of big results, and Quintana was less than electrifying in the Giro. In contrast, Porte has had a winning start to the season and looks to be in awesome form.
