A bonus for Sky is that Knees and Pate can both climb a little bit so they won't be entirely useless on the big climbing stages (early grunt work).
If everything goes according to Sky's plan Sir Wiggo will grab pink after stage 8, which will leave 13 Giro style stages where the lead needs defending.
So tempo riding with Knees and Pate? Everyday, for two weeks?
Looking forward to the action.
