Actually only sky have a team for the GC by the looks of it. The others seem to have their classics team lined up.

I doubt that Froome is in any shape, unlike people like Contador and Evans Froome hasn't really showed us anything in the early months of the season.

On the other hand a lot of things has changed since last year so maybe you never know, he'll top 10 but I don't expect more than that.

Looking at the riders who are racing this :eek::eek:

Real awesome field: evans, contador, froome, wiggins, nibali, boonen, gilbert, cancellara, purito, sagan.

Excluding valverde and cavendish I think we got the biggest names in cycling.

Thus obviously i'm superhyped for this, especially since the parcours is pretty good. I like the hilly stages and then 1 big mountain stage, awesome!!

Btw laflo, you're being ridiculous with Froome being skinny, at tour form Contador is exactly the same. Besides we only see a part of Froome his body in that picture.

No way, Alberto can be skinny but he's never anorexic.

Do you think Sky intend to rehearse a train?

If one brags by winning out-of-shape Contador, one should admit that a rider of comparable level can do the same, no?

The thing is that Contador has shown many times he can do it early in the season, with some riders for whatever reason it takes more time to get in shape.

Froome hasn't proved that yet, i've no doubt it's possible but Contador is a more certain factor.

Denying that would be retarded, even by your standards airstream ;)

Yeh, with your scale of riders' off-form, many people on here are retarded.
