Wiggo's early season schedule is up.

http://www.velonation.com/News/ID/13...apped-out.aspx

T-A on it where Contador and Schleckette will be, should be interesting as they can scope each other out

I'm greeting Wiggo's decision to start TA instead of defending PN.
He has champion's attitude and desire to prove that last season's successes weren't result of circumstances.
I'm sure his decision is strongly related with expected Contador's participation.
Also, I guess Brailsford wants to know what they are up against... To weigh strengths early, so he could make some projections.
Contador - Wiggins is the duel we all want to see. We can agree on that, I think.

Well I rather see Froome - Conta at Tour, but this should be interesting as well :P

Well Wiggo has a level of confidence now that he didn't in the Vuelta. However my expectation would be that Bertie drops him hard Can Sky diesel back up dragging Brad along, will be the question. At least Sky will have an idea what they will be facing for le Tour.

I agree that a much more interesting match up will be Bertie/Froome.

Again your making a fool out of yourself. Not sure why you hate Wiggins so much, but have at least some respect for his qualities. In 2012 he won almost everywhere he rode.

I think you're wrong.
Remember that Sky has that new "cigarette" method of training.
