Unfortunately, you are correct. DZ withdrew from the team:
It seems to me that this is Spartacus' race to lose... not only is he (arguably?) the best individual time trialer of recent years, but he has home field advantage. I think a more interesting question than whether or not he's going to win the ITT is whether or not he can also win the road race (wouldn't that be something?!?). Then again, considering the road course, and Fabu's climbing ability, I think that prospect is probably out the door...
Of course, the other favorites have already been mentioned: Larsson, Millar, Wiggins, Grabsch.
BTW, I'm surprised no one has mentioned Svein Tuft of Canada. He's a relatively strong time trialer, and did he not come in second last year?
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime. Teach a man to cycle and he will realize fishing is stupid and boring.
