The 5 best on Saxo for the TTT:

Alberto
Rogers
Kreuziger
Bennati
Boaro

Extremely strong squad. Could very well win the TTT.
The severe drop off to the next 3 will not help however - you need to be well practiced to accomodate such a disparity.

Based on races so far, I'd be surprised if either of them can drop Henao by very much if he was just riding for himself, so I don't think Froome will be short of help if he does need it.
Yep I agree, I said as much earlier in the thread.

Without Porte? He seemed to need Porte to bridge across and then he took over the pace making and then after being so called dropped he rode back on and attacked past them and gained on Purito. I don't think he needed Porte all that badly in Oman, but I get your point. Still either Froome or Contador may be in better form than the other and then everything changes.
Instead of Porte he has Henao and Uran though, don't forget it was that pair that pulled Froome back to Purito and Valverde in Vuelta, (only for Froome to make the mistake of attacking them immediately), rather than recooping for a while.

Froome will probably need them on Di Tivo because Contador will be 15-20 seconds up after the TTT. They'll need to set a crazy pace for Froome to have any chance of dropping Contador in the last few km.

Is that an old list or did it just come out? I notice there's no Kreuziger. Nice to see Samu is racing though I'm not sure he's got the form at the moment to compete with top guys.
Like always, this is an initial list of participants published by the organiser. It is not an up to date starting list containing the latest info, let alone a final start list.

And Saxo. They could very well podium the TTT, and with luck even win it.
Especially now that Kreziger is going TA instead of PN (he is substituting for Majka who seems to have problems with his knee again)
