This is going to look a lot like the 2012 Tour except Sky may pick up more than one jersey.

Zandio - Lopez - Porte - Cataldo - Kireynka - Henao - Wiggins

And 2 flat doms, maybe Swift. Perfect team xD

From that list only Kireynka I am unsure if does Giro or Tour imo.

Rogers also said he's keen for the Giro. The TTT is a bit longer so maybe they go easy on the Spanish climbers. Save Uran for the Tour where Froome will need him.

Wiggins
Porte
Rogers
Henao
Cataldo
Kiryienka
Knees
Stannard/Eisel
Kennaugh

Ridiculous squad either way.

You need to turn 25 in the calendar year or something like that. Henao turns 25 in December so wouldn't be eligible.

Is Wiggins afraid of Contador and Schleck that he will not try to defend his TDF?

Uphill Wiggo, Nibali, Hesjedal are probably quite similar. The Rodriguez we've seen in the Vuelta is better, just like Quintana.

In the TT, Wiggo is way better than any of them. So Wiggo it is.

If Nibali doesn't go mad on the descent of Stelvio and make Wiggins crash while trying not to lose, I fear Sky will be unstoppable.
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.
