I have impression that Kreuziger will experience rebirth.
Majka apparently. Maybe Bennati will do some sprints and make the team a little stronger.

So how are ppl rating the Dolphin? I think as good as top 5, even podium. His results since returning have been impressive, and he was touted as a potential winner in '09. Also Savio's team usually performs at the Giro.

I hope Kreuziger will want to come back and prove the point he missed in 2012. It shouldn't effect his duties at the Tour.
Saxo has roster which can feature in all three GTs, without worrying.

I really, really hope it's gonna be Wiggins.


Or Frank Schleck, that would be cool too

Eshnar apparently doesn't rate him at all. He didn't even get a mention in the poll so I had to vote for Garzelli/other.

He was good at the Italian champs but he's completely untested over three weeks since '09. I think he'll go stage hunting.
