That's exactly the point. It DOESN'T offer the right terrain / balance for guys like Van Garderen. The only time trialist who will be missed is Froome.

Disagree. Parcours is fine for TT'ers.

Giro - Tour is more likely, from what I read. It will be fun to watch, I'm sure.

The best news ever would be the resurrection of Pantani, Lucho Herrera and the confirmation of Nairo Quintana What times... When the Testa Della Corsa was Lucho and the favourites group were compound by Fignon, Roche, Hampsten, Chiocchioli, Breukink, Giovanetti, Lejarreta or Vona. Ten GTS and innumerable podiums. Today we have Hesjedals and De Gendts and we jump of happiness if Samuel Sánchez ride.

Still, I'd take it. Just as long as he doesn't make the Tour his #1 goal of the season yet again.
