You really think that Saxo will take 15 or more seconds on Sky in TTT?

I reckon they will be within 5 seconds of each other, which way round I don't know.

I do, yes. Sky aren't bringing a good squad for the TTT. They'll finish mid-pack and it might end up costing them the race. We'll see...

I'd put Radioshack right up there... Blanco aren't bad either. All these teams with classics squads will be very competitive.

Cycling has so much more to offer than Omega and Tony Martin...

Win the TTT and get the leader jersey perhaps?

Glad to see from the lineup that Tony has been sent to practice being part of Cav's leadout as much as anything else.

Clearly not even the Omega management think Tony can Win the overall.

In seriousness though, their team is not that bad for the TTT, Cav being a sprinter does well in TTT's, Grabsch is a very good TTer, as is Kwiatkowski, and Terpstra and Stybar being classics riders should do fine. A pretty good team for the TTT if you ask me.

I do wonder who they will replace Trentin with though?
