Top pros speak: Which Lance Armstrong will we see at the Tour de France

So far in 2010, Lance Armstrong has crashed on his face (Amgen Tour of California), abandoned two stage races (California and Circuit de la Sarthe), lost 29 seconds to Fabian Cancellara in a 7.6km prologue (Tour of Switzerland) and shown admittedly erratic form (SRAM Tour of the Gila).

He’s also finished in the first chase group at one of the hardest races on the calendar (Tour of Flanders), shown flashes of his former self riding as a superdomestique for Levi Leipheimer (Gila and California), finished on the final podium at a stage race (Tour of Luxembourg), and on Thursday, finished with the main group at the hardest climbing stage of the Tour of Switzerland.

With the start of the Tour de France just 15 days away, it’s a reasonable question to wonder which Armstrong will show up in Rotterdam. VeloNews.TV polled several prominent figures in the pro peloton for their opinion, including Michael Rogers, Jens Voigt, and last year’s Tour runner up Andy Schleck.
