Pretty good chance? No way they will be invited for the Tour, certainly not if Argos doesn't get a WT license.

Yes quite. Nibali to win on the decents is a very sad confirmation of the lack of individual tactics and nouse. Radios and riders taking orders from DS'sare to blame

prudhomme has said in honor of the 100th tour he want to celebrate the history of the tour and invite a colombian team again.

But it is far more likely he will end up celebrating French history and just invite all French teams he can find again. Like basically every year.

so? there are 3 french pct teams, which leaves one more invitation to coldeportes. also reason why I suspected they said wether saxo gets a wt or not it won't influence their wildcard policy. to me is them basically saying they already have their wildcards fixed and nothing will change that.

If Saxo do not get a WT spot and do not get invited to the TDF over Sojasun (who have lost Coppel) it would be a disgrace again.

On topic i really would like for Nibali to win, he was very strong in 2010 at the Giro, he is Italian and it would help him to not be trod on in this forum (even though he is not spectacular) by some.

Duarte might not have that much of a chance at next years TDF to get a stage win- the 2011 TDF would have very much suited him with stages 1,4 and 8. Next year there are not too many hills in the first week where he could get a stage- but that argument of mine completely discounts the fact he can also climb (which i know he can).

Don't forget Chaves and Atapuma.
