The colombians are usually the best of these guys by a long shot, but Hernandez was in really good shape in Oman, so it depends on thier form really
Hernandez looked very good in Oman. Would be ridiculous if he's not close to 100 % :)

So Cataldo, Henao and Uran

Vs. Rogers, Hernandez and Majka.

Which one is better?

Hard to tell, it depends on shape obviously. I'll give the advantage to sky but it's very close. Well we'll see :D
Sky. Rogers' form is nowhere near as good as it was last year this time, and Majka still has issues with his knee

Based on indications thus far I wouldn't be surprised if Henao does a Froome and drops everyone but his buddy Uran.

Majka isn´t riding, I read somewhere on a German forum. Knee problems, so no race within the next three weeks or so.
Yes, someone mentioned on twitter that Majka has knee problems so his replacement for T-A is... Roman Kreuziger! So if any one had hopes for Kreuziger in P-N they have been shattered :D

why is everyone doing the 3 vs 3 :confused:
Well it'll be important when Contador goes if Froome still has a teammate. Look at Oman where he still had Porte. Without Porte...

They've to isolate him obviously.

.
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.

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.
