Would be awesome with a team with Cancellara and Martin to pull an insane 20km sprint into the high mountains. Carnage lol

Keeping safe works for flat mostly. I don't understand what means to keep safe on the climbs. Anyone needs helpers like Wiggins. More precisely no one would turn down them.

Sky didn't pull Wiggins at 'certain mediocre watt level'. Stop wishful thinking and positioning Wiggins like anti climber. It is getting sort of self-deception. He would have won the Tour even without such a strong team simply at the expense of TT.

It is said as though all the teams will lull the race so that the main pack would lose the riders as slowly as possible. All main team will destroy the field preparing an attack for captains. Which [Sky, Saxo or RSNT] one will be stronger is unknown. My version is Sky.

Could anyone call me a stage when team could help Contador? Personally I can't remember what could happen better for him say in 2011 if he had a proper team.
