Giro 2013 is very good opportunity, IMO. Wiggo-friendly Vuelta (obviously not in 2013) could be that second GT. And that's it. No more Tours, I think.
So, you basically think he has a chance of a GT as long as he avoids Alberto

Still though, I don't think he will win it. I doubt he would even enter it again unless he crashes out of the Tour.

Or if GT looks like 2012 Tour.
But it's more about competition than the route, yes.

He needs everything to line up for him again...rivals compromised/absent, TT heavy course, a team geared to dragging him to victory at the expense of everyone else and (most importantly) a Brad driven, primed, in focus and in peak shape.
