All kidding aside, I hope he won't have to sacrifice himself completely... even if it's just his first pro year, he should be the favourite for the white jersey.

Chavanel for OPQS. He wants to ride the Giro, anyway.

For me, it's not about the average team strength, but about the best riders on it for the key (mountain) stages in this race.
