Scarponi isn't going to do anything.

I could make a valid argument that at least 6 of those could beat nibali not being in 100%. nibali is so overrated here it's unbelievable.

sammy begins each gt with a three minute deficit as it is. purito, scarponi, evans, and frank have tried and failed. poor andy was driven to drink, it was so difficult. Cobo can beat a less than 100% Nibali, but that's it. Froome shows how he gets crushed off form. I don't think Valverde is much better than Nibali at GT's to begin with. That leaves Contador, who can't even win the Dauphine off form.
