Wiggo needs to test himself against the best, this is a great opportunity to do that without serious consequences! If he loses, oh well it was just a buildup for the Giro.
Bertie's changes of pace will test him hard......
Don't know the parcours yet, but if it's a long, flat ITT Wiggins will take time there and Bertie will go work on his ITT before le Tour. Will it be enough time to hold against the mountain onslaughts?
It will also be interesting to see Sky vs Saxo as Saxo has some new strong riders.
Throw in Schleck, Nibali wanting to defend and Evans(?) could be a Really Good race
