Inspite of the mechanical he closed upto the front group. I didnot see him in any difficulty. He had not blown. He was not gasping for breath. He was not struggling to pedal. Definitely the form is there. Motivation is a different issue. He doesn't have the same hunger as 2012(this is Froome's year:D). He probably gave it up as lost and soft pedaled or kept his powder dry for the Giro. As regards getting dropped, he will get dropped by Rodriguez, Contador and Froome, but he can afford to as he will gain time in the TTs. Nibali is not in their class but will accelerate away from Wiggins in the mountains but Wiggins will close up.
That, apart from the motivation bit, he will be 100% motivated come the Giro.
Compared to last year, Wiggins is worse, Nibali is better.
But more importantly for the Giro
Sky team is weaker, Astana stronger (compared to TdF12)
Could be very evenly matched IMHO
And Garmin could sneek up too

I'm looking forward to it!
