Default Tour de France 2013 Wild Cards

This is the second thread because i screwed up the first one

Quote:
I'm surprised no one has made a poll yet for that.
Now that we have 19 WT teams and that there will be only 3 Wild Cards and that we know the invitations for PN and Criterium du Dauphiné Libéré, who do you think will be the 3 Wild Cards for the Tour?
Will the organisers opt for an all french invites, especially that some of the french reactions implied that the UCI are acting against the french.

i went for the 3 frenchies.

no way ASO invites AIM over sour, both will be invisible but at least sour is french and have a french riders like hivert. It's not like haussler and lofkvist have a chance to do anything anyway. . .

Sorry for the confusion earrly on. It's 6h30 PM here and still at the office

I went with Sojasun too (the sponsor Saur left them btw) because i think too that they have better chance and because it's one of my favorite teams and I think they will be more aggressive this year with no focus on GC since Coppel left to Cofidis. So looking forward to seeing what Hivert and Simon could do with a free role.

Europcar: Voeckler + Rolland
Cofidis: Coppel + Le Mevel + Taaramae + Navarro, Petit for some sprint.

and then toss a coin.

Although Zam_Olyas thinks none of the wildcards will be French. I'll take any bet against that.
