So will Nieve be Froome's main domestique? Or will Porte do Giro - Tour double? Or both?

You would imagine Sky team would be stronger than last year's Tour

I remember reading that Porte would help Froome at the Tour after the Giro.

Looks like Porte will do both, SKY might still have Henao riding le Tour because Porte can't possibly be a contender in giro and be as great a dom as he was this year. That way Henao can also focus on some classics since he is one of their best hopes in the hilly ones.

It's quite possible that SKY still haven't made the final decision because they want all the rider to finish their seasons before they start talking about those things and the Tour, Vuelta and Worlds routes haven't been presented yet.

Probably Walsh will write something about Kenya, cyclism, Froome's roots, etc, that's why is in Nairobi in the first part of Froome's vacation.
