No doubt about that if he does. But Porte's is good all roudner and will prove very useful allround in both Tour or Giro, whichever they pick for him.

Wiggins, Henao, Porte, Kyrienka, Cataldo, Lopez, Dombrowski is clearly a farcical level of resource so I would be surprised to see more than 5 of those names actually at the Giro.

He said he wanted to do Giro. Never said he will There's a difference.
I saw and interview where Porte said Wiggins gets the best out of him, or words to that effect. He's probably too close to Froome.

Your use of the terms sure, certain, knowledge and truth always were a little looser than the average however.

I am sure those 6 are certs in the team too. I also strongly think that Pate will be doing it. As well as Kennaugh.

Well it could certainly use a rouleur or 2, so imagine Pate is likely. Knees and Eisel spent many a mile on the front of the peloton on the flat in last year's Tour riding for Brad, so I'd have thought they'd go for another strong rider for the flats also - Eisel or Knees again, or Thomas or Stannard. I know Brad's fond of both Knees and Thomas, so I imagine one will be there.

Unliekely.

Thomas, Knees & Eisel are all sets for Tour. No doubt about that. I also think Stannard might be given his Tour debut. But out of the 4 he's most likely to do Giro.

Pate and Kennaugh are great flat roulers. No need for more than them tbh.

Kennaugh is more natural on climbs than Brad will ever be
