Agree with this to some extent. Contador and Schleck have proven themselves in the mountains many times to be the best riders. Froome while looking strong in the last Tour still struggled to drop Cobo in the 2011 Vuelta and lost time on the Angliru. That said, there is no climb as freakish in next years Tour.
The 2012 Vuelta is harder to read just because Froome was coming off the Tour.
Schleck is weakest in the TT (By some margin) so will be up to him to force the pace. If all three are on form it could be a great Tour.
