But despite heading up a reduced list of favorites following the forfeit of 2010 champion Andy Schleck and the absence of two time champion Alberto Contador the Team Sky leader will be taking nothing for granted.

Although this year's route features over 100 km of time trials, in theory favoring all rounders like Basket Adidas Originals Sl 72 Vintage Wiggins and Evans, Team Sky chief Dave Brailsford says staying lucky will play just as big a role.

Evans, 35, battled for years to finally win the yellow jersey, and despite having a less successful season than last year, will be no pushover.

While in great physical condition in 2011 the 32 year old Englishman was forced out with a broken collarbone after a crash on stage seven.

Wiggins downhilling skills have, at least compared to Evans and Italian outsider Vincenzo Nibali (Liquigas), been singled out as a potential weakness.

Crashes, the much feared 'off day' and the fact that Team Sky will also be supporting sprinter Mark Cavendish's bid for stage success have all been cited as potential obstacles for Wiggins.

In the past year Wiggins' stock as a top stage racer has gone sky high.

Marie added: "Going in his favor is that he knows himself perfectly well. He knows at which level of power he can produce and for how long."

Although a handful of contenders, including 2010 Tour of Spain winner Nibali, will be looking to upset Wiggins' plans to become the first British winner of the race, Evans remains his biggest threat.

But, as he and Evans would admit to, it takes more than top form on the long climbs and time trials to win the yellow jersey.

"I now know that I can win and my race this year is almost identical to what I did last year," he said. "We'll have a yet stronger team for this year's Tour."

Three time Olympic track champion Wiggins has emerged as the favorite to succeed Evans as the winner of the world's premier cycling event, which begins Saturday with a 6.4 km prologue in Liege.

And while he and BMC team leader Evans appear to be favored by the long time trials, their rivals will look to make an impact in the mountains, some of which feature the steepest climbs in the history of the race.

Tour director Christian Prudhomme says this year's route is designed to make sure no one gets a free ride all the way to Paris.

"If everything is going well you can win the Dauphine and the Tour," he said. "But the Tour is three weeks, not one, and the temperature is 30 degrees (Celsius), not 20. And you have to be able to pace yourself well for three weeks."

But for every argument against the Londoner, there is one to redress the balance.

For several sports directors of teams competing at the race, a largely unanimous "it's his year," has been the answer when asked about Wiggins' chances.

"We've spread out the difficulties sufficiently to make sure there is potential for surprise, and opportunities for the main protagonists to go on the offensive."

Ahead of an anticipated Britain v Australia rivalry on the boards of the London Olympic velodrome in August, Wiggins v Evans could get the wheels in motion in July.

"It's more about not making a mistake than it is about winning the race, as such," Brailsford said. "In the time trials and mountain stages, which will be critical, I think Bradley's in great shape.

"Everything can be calculated, and, since he is an intelligent rider, Bradley will come through it."

"These stages require very specific efforts," said Orica GreenEdge sports director Lionel Marie. "Especially if a coalition of climbers work together in a bid to drop him."

LIEGE, Belgium, June 28, 2012 (AFP) Britain's Bradley Wiggins has been reminded that avoiding the many pitfalls on the road to Tour de France glory will be key if he is to succeed Australia's Cadel Evans as yellow jersey champion.
