Rolland dreams of beautiful 100th edition of Tour

Pierre Rolland knows what it's like to have win atop l'Alpe d'Huez in the Tour de France. It's a feat he achieved in 2011 against eventual polka-dot jersey winner Samuel Sanchez. That year he finished 10th overall and won the young rider classification but some suggest he could have placed higher if not for his loyal support of Europcar teammate Thomas Voeckler who led the race for 10 days. A stage win and 8th overall in the 2012 Tour was an improvement but the Frenchman is already dreaming of 2013.
