Unliekely.

Thomas, Knees & Eisel are all sets for Tour. No doubt about that. I also think Stannard might be given his Tour debut. But out of the 4 he's most likely to do Giro.

Pate and Kennaugh are great flat roulers. No need for more than them tbh.
No way will Stannard do Classics-Giro-Tour.

Oh yeah. It's either Classics - Tour or Classics - Giro. Tour I think it's more likely, but Giro is viable option.

Knees has said he's definitely riding the Giro with Wiggins and may well then ride the Tour as well depending on his form.

No sign this is a joke, but I feel it must be.

Kennaugh is small, light climber, and spending a year riding a series of short sprints in formation does not make him a serious bunch puller.
IF you watched last years Giro, until Kennaugh pulled out he was in the leading out train for Cav as well as pulling the break on several occasions. IT's not like he's great, but he's decent enough.

I could have sworn great was exactly the word you used.

Anyhow, I do indeed remember him costing Cav a stage win on that corner, but it really would be an utterly bizzare use of resources to get your 62 kilo British climbing talent to do a Matt Hayman impression in a team which already has more climbers than can realistically be required.

Great was the wrong wording by myself then xD

Decent is better. If necessary he can do the job, Giro doens't have much flat in it anyway so Pate should be enough :D

Is Jurgen Van Den Broeck riding the Giro? Placing 4th in 2012 TdF seemed to have done nothing for him. Is there any fanboy other than logic-is-your-friend in this forum? :)
Nope, he's doing the usual stage race build up to a 4th place at the Tour. He should play in the Premier League, where everyone loves talking about the race for 4th place.

This is really funny. :D
I guess he'll be ignored in all the 2013 TdF polls.

Yes it's a timeless question. Can VDB make the podium this year ? A bit like asking who will be the next Frenchman to win the Tour ?
