If the Mick Rogers transfer is true, this is really looking like it can be a quite the team for AC next year

If Alberto doesn't know by the end of February if Saxo is invited to the tour he'll ride il Giro.

Would be bad news for Wiggins and Nibali, but good news for the Giro

Alberto was on the stage at the TdF 2013 presentation, Andy for unknown reasons was not.
So I believe Alberto/Saxo-Tinkoff will be invited.

Nah.

Froome will be in much better shape. Without saying anything. Andy rode his last GT in 2011, he will not be at his best anyway.

2nd. Froome will destroy him in the TT's. 3rd, he's as good climber as him I'd say.

Perhaps an Andy of 2011. But no way Froome would have followed Andy up tourmalet

So that means if Saxo gets invited to the Tour, then they'll have two leaders. Since all Skys or ex Skys have earned the right to ride for themselves...Oh uh...

That doesn't matter. It's about WHEN they get invited.
