Jungels, Naesen, Dewulf, Cosnefroy. All perfectly adequate classic riders
Yep. I'm guessing Dewulf is a bit stronger than GVA currently and more of a team player.

GVA mentioned that he almost finished OTL in last year's Tignes stage. Yeah, that was some hard racing in bad weather for a couple days, but still, GVA was among the worst performing riders in the whole peloton in that stage. And didn't have the form to do much in other stages, either.

He seems to be in worse shape now and is still first reserve.

It was posted two weeks ago that Yates will not be starting the TDF - It's an uninspiring squad, although they should win stages - Would have thrown Groves into the squads as he can get over various terrains, however he's already had 46 race days - Janssen is so lucky to be in the squad - he's done nothing in two years, however he was OK at the Dauphine - I predict three stage wins.

I read that as it was uncertain if he would start, but they were hoping he'd be ready.

Surprised that Gino Mader didn't make it. They have a strong lineup, but don't really have any climbers to support Caruso & Haig.
I'm guessing Bahrain will have an even stronger squad at the Vuelta to support Landa.
