That wasn't my point. I just think the Sicilian realizes that last year presented a series of coincidences (first among them was Nibali finding extraordinary form at just the right time, but also that his too biggest rivals crashed out and he gained big time in a particular situation that isn't likely to happen again anytime soon), the absence of which will make winning again less likely than likely.
Unless you believe that Nibali is stronger in the mountains and time trials than Froome and Contador. I do not.
