Tour De France 2012: Your Complete Guide to Cycling's Biggest Event

Our take: Despite the allegations Lance Armstrong is facing, the focus of this year's Tour de France will be Cadel Evans, the Australian who won last year.

If Evans repeats and wins it again, should we expect doping allegations for him, too? People love to hate whoever is on top, and the longer someone stays at No. 1, the tougher it becomes to hold on.

Going into the race this year, there's also the question of how bikers will perform in the later stages of the race, in comparison to past years when doping was more prevalent.
