Yeah, the Tour doesn't make much sense if he has to ride as a complete domestique: there are better riders for that job at Movistar specially now with Szmyd and Capechi.
About Sanchez: it was about time! I just hope he doesn't come across with Contador in the first time since 2009 that he puts his nose out of the Tour.
About Quintana: he strikes me as the guy to excel at the Giro even more than Henao perhaps considering he's a more natural climber. Does he stand the cold?
About Andy: it makes sense. He still has the best win on the Ardennes of the last couple of years. Not many guys could have pulled that Liege out of the bag. I hope he mixes it up with Contador in Tirreno.
