I'd go with 6 or 7 max.
the "team work" excuse to use as many domestics as the leaders can to dispose them when the going gets tough. I really miss the old days.
BTW the poll does not give many options now does it?

Way more interesting with 7, plus I like the idea of national teams. More competitive.
maybe.. maybe not
spain would just destroy the mountains...

Contador
Valverde
S Sanchez
Sastre
Rodriguez
LL Sanchez
Anton
etc...

also schleck might lack some support.. or riders in general.

Does anyone here know (or have a link to) the history behind the number '9' for riders? Or did the UCI shake the magic '8' ball and that was the selected number ,,,

Schleck's plus Kirchen and then scrape up the whole other 4 riders in LUX they would do ok.

Italy would be solid aswell with Cunego Simoni Basso Franco P. and Nibali
