Movistar has three leaders :( Quintana, Valverde, & Costa should all get there shot... they should have each given them a lead at a GT :(
They have 1 leader and 1 sub :p. Costa to try and defend Valverde when all of the team faded in the mountains, so is Quintana. Quintana is future GC boy in Movistar, but nowhere Costa is racing a GT to win, at least in a near future.

Szmyd has been great at Mont Ventoux in the past, he will be really vauable in the mountains and especially there.

I agree that Costa isn't on the same level as Quintana or Valverde, but I'm very curious what he could do with some freedom. See Inxausti in the Giro this year... he stepped up quite nicely, I want to see Costa do the same.

If wiggins had been included, sky would have been in danger of vertical acceleration. Even without him, froome, porte, thomas, ebh, Kiri and Kennaugh represent a frightening core of accomplished tters and pursuiters. Hard to look past sky for ttt, martin or not.
Martin will make the difference for OPQS. If Wiggins had been in Sky's team then it would be a tough one to call.

Probably has Spilak reliased that he makes better result by focusing on one week stageraces. Thats true for alot of others too. Or he might just been ill or injured...

However a very strong team, Trofimov could be important, if in shape.

I really don't understand what Gilbert is doing there :eek:
He usually tells some good jokes, he's good for the atmosphere in the team. Although Gilbert is riding like a joke himself nowadays.

Where the hell is Frank! :mad: He deserves to be there. Unless he chose not to?

Also, I think I would actually have preferred to see Hushovd instead of Gilbert. Just a feeling he could have done better than Phil will. But we'll see.
