The 7 who seem to have cashed in their tickets are: Bertie, Jesus, Nicki, Roche, Rogers, Kreuziger, and CAS


Tough choice between tossato, bennati, morkov, paulinho. Noval, not so much. He ate too much Hannah's brownies :D he is a little fatty fat fat :p

Let's not forget that he is an Olympic Medalist in team pursuit, so obviously a clear contender for Yellow in Paris ;)


There would be no breakaways for him this year. His job would be to keep Bertie safe and sound on flat stages.

It is very tough indeed.My pick is surely Morkov and for the last spot probably Paulinho or Tossato.Very tough.:confused:

Think Bennati could do Tosattos job very well, + he is probably a stronger rider overall

I think Alberto definitely wants Tosatto on the team. In the 2011 Giro he was amazing. I don't know about Bennati. I guess if he gets a spot on the team it's because of the ttt.

I hope the last two spots will be Tosatto and Paulinho. (Mørkøv as substitute)
Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

I think Alberto wants Paulinho and Tosatto to take the last to spots, but let's be honest, does he really need Paulinho? He already has Hernandez, Kreuziger, Roche, CAS and Rogers as climbers. Only Nicki to protect him on the flat. If he gets caught behind a crash, he needs strong guys to help bring him back. So I guess it would be smart to take two of Bennati, Morkov and Tosatto to the Tour.
