Will sky lose some time here? They have 4 really strong but the rest are a bit questionable at the moment.

Can you imagine Kiri or Stannard weakening a TTT squad?

Garmin, everybody but D.Martin is a good to strong TTer and is healthy as well. But its gonna be close at the top anyway.

I would have said OPQS before Martins crash. But now I'm not so sure, don't know to what degree his injury will affect their chances. I could still see them taking it however. I say either OPQS or Sky to take it.

Movistar and Garmin will also do well I think.
 
How did Stannard and G do today? If they are ok then Sky will win no question!!

Lopez will probs do 2km then drop off then the engines fly with Kiryienka, Stannard and Siutsou then the TT's bring it home Froome, Porte, G, Eddy, Kennaugh!!

I think QuickStep and Sky will finish with approximately the same time. SaxoBank and Garmin to lose 15-20 sec

Only 3 Sky riders (Froome, Porte and Hagen) in big main group today. I´m sure they will compete for stage win, but i would not bet for their win.

I am surprised that Lopez and Kennaugh aren't there, did sky do this last year?

No doubt come Ventoux, there will b 7 on the front at the foot of the climb after Kiri and Stannard have pulled the peloton for 200km. LOL
 
Movistar is my favourite for tomorrow.

Valverde could wear the jellow jersey in the first ITT, and that will be very good for his moral.

There are some names, as Gesink, that look today were thinking in tomorrow

Garmin. They look good, haven't encountered anything AFAIK, and haven't done sh.t so far in the race. Plus they seem to make a good collective, none of them a super time trialist, none of them an awful one (well, except Dan Martin maybe, but he's quite explosive, which is useful).

Froome will leave Valverde behind on Ax 3 Domaines
