Froome confirmed to ride Tirreno, possibly his big target early in the season ( that would leave captaincy for PN to Porte I think ). It doesn't say if Wiggins will ride Tirreno though. ( just confirms he'll do Trentino and Giro as target races ).

Wggins begins in Mallorca and then both move to Oman.

Some FDJ news. Pinot will lead the team in the Tour de France while Jeannesson will do the Giro d'Italia. Ladagnous and Offredo will lead the classsics team. I hope that Offredo will continue on the same level as in his 2011 campaign.

Yeah Malhão should be out; alto da Fóia was due a return. Still, I'm happy that the race is still on considering all the financial trouble going on lately. Next year maybe it will end with Dubai coming in with fat big prize moneys and running at the same time.
Nice to have big stages of 200km maybe this will atract some good classics riders that can't go to Oman get that paycheck.

Edit: Here it is, Froome trades Algarve for Oman. Who can blame him, Algarve's prize should pale in comparison.
