+1. I always thought that he got all the stars line up for him on 2012. Repeating the same performance, I see as quite a big challenge for him. However, with purito, evan, richie, quintana, horner goes for giro, TDF podium seems to open up. Besides nibali, contador, valverde who it think got a great chance, the rest of the TDF cast he might be able to hang with them (molema, VDB, hesjedal, tejay, Costa). Especially at the end, there is a long ITT. If he can hang in the mountain, he could possibly smooke everyone in the ITT.
He out smarted nibali with constant hard riding in 2012 (even though it doesn't mean he can achieve the same effect this year). Valverde seems to be a tad below nibali or the same. And Contador this year is still a question mark. If he shows up like last year, wiggins can be 'Porte' like last year. But that's a big "IF".
