Yeah you're right. Uphilly sounds better

But with the lack of time trailing the Vuelta normally should be the grand tour which suits the abilities of the Colombian riders the most and Chaves already peaked good in last years autumn.

Although I doubt their rooster will be strong enough to ride a good Vuelta if the've already ridden Giro & Tour.

But Ryo should know better than me.

I would like for it to be
Vini Fantini
Bardiani
Colombia-Coldportes.

IAM would be nice but i can only see them getting stages. Europcar would also be great but i think Rolland has a great chance to go well at the TDF this year. The same with Katusha- JROD wants to ride the TDF, so there would be no real advantage in sending a team with Menchov.

Would be pretty astounded to see IAM get a Giro wildcard before they've even raced.
