Who even knows what he'll be asked to do with that ridiculous team selection Sky have here - They could have 6 or 7 of the first 20 on the climb, or they could ask Dombo to go pick up water bottles and pull the peloton.

yep and the free for all doesn't strike me as being an option for Sky. Team:

CATALDO Dario Italy
DOMBROWSKI Joseph Lloyd United States
FROOME Christopher United Kingdom
KENNAUGH Peter United Kingdom
KIRYIENKA Vasil Belarus
KNEES Christian Germany
PORTE Richie Australia
WIGGINS Bradley United Kingdom

Unlikely to get the jersey early with the above. Riding tempo anyway? Who knows.
