Default What team would Purito fit into to make it a Tour winning team?

I can only think of 3 that could possible support Purito Rabobank and vacansoleil and Euskaltel. Argos Shimano deffinatly won't beable to support him in the mountains and i don't think Orica can either really.

Discuss.

Samuel Sanchez said he would ride the Giro and Vuelta. If so Euskaltel would be perfect.

Allthough ofcourse not nearly as strong as Katusha, but I just don't see him going to Blanco.
Vacans.. well might as well be possible.

I expect him to stay at Katusha no matter what though.

Blanco might as well sign him, in their final year they might want to win a few races

BMC could be a good match for him, taking over from Cadel.

Garmin-Sharp - could ride as a joint leader with Hejesdal

Lotto-Bellisool -> joint leader again with Van-de-Broeck

AGR2 Mondial and Liquigas also are prospects replacing ROche or Nibali respectively.

Then he could join Nibali at Astana - joint leadership (especially if Nibali does Giro)

What, and demote "super-rider" Fuglsang to lieutenant duties again? Would be funny to see.
