Denis Menchov, winner of the 2009 Giro d’Italia is ready to answer your questions ahead of the Tour de France.
After winning the Tour’s young rider classification in 2003, the Russian rider went on to twice win cycling’s third grand tour - the Vuelta a Espana, in 2005 and 2007.
A strong climber and time-trialist, the 31-year-old managed a creditable fourth-place finish in the 2008 Tour de France, two minutes 10 seconds behind the winner, Carlos Sastre.
But Menchov’s authoritative performance at the Giro –
despite crashing in the final time trial - has propelled him into the favourites to finish in yellow in Paris on 26 July.
And, as he prepares for the Tour, the Rabobank rider has agreed to an exclusive interview with BBC Sport cycling fans, thanks to the BBC’s Russian service.
Leave your questions and comments here and we will put the best of them to him.
His answers will be published on the BBC Sport Cycling page in the week before the Tour starts.
