Ummm..mate his Vuelta performance was extraordinary considering circumstances. First race from broken collarbone in July..
It will be good battle, Nibali should gain some time in moutains, however this might be annulled more than likely depending how strong Sky mountain team will be.
In TT's Wiggins wins clearly. It will be nice battle, but Wiggins will edge it for me, if comes with good shape.
