Hopefully Hansen and others can hunt some more GC stages after inevitable JVDB fail in GC.
In three times going for GC in the Tour, VDB crashed out once and got 4th twice. I don't see how failure is inevitable.

Underrated as hell.

I see him between 3 and 7 again unless he crashes out of course.

Thanks. That would make 7 for Movistar (including Costa, Valverde and Quintana) but I'd have thought Guiterrez, Rojas and Moreno would all be likely selections too (which would be 10)? Has Szmyd shown enough form to be included?
Well i don't think Moreno will be in the Tour (not on the road since Vuelta a Castilla y León wich was in middle of April) and Szmyd did quite well in the Dauphiné. Movistar should announce their team by the end of the week.

Can we add Majka and Sutherland to the Saxo list yet?


Duggan a reach?

(although I know little about their current health)

This thread becomes pretty worthless when names are added because we assume they will be selected, without any official confirmation.

I get your point however that's why JRanton puts the riders in bold as and when they are confirmed. It's better to have a look at the teams taking shape on one thread rather than having to search around.

Andrey Amador, Sylwester Szmyd, Castroviejo, Enrique Sanz are likely to be in the Tour with Movistar, almost 100%.
Seems odd that Eusebio would make such a purely nepostistic choise for a race like the TDF, but I guess he can do some leadout for Rojas, though that is surtenly not going to well at the moment in Tour De Suisse. I would think Rojas would have to be on his own this time with all the GC focus, and if he should get a helper Ventoso would normaly be obvious.

Also I think a spot will go to Erviti who seems to be very well respected in the team as a strong loyal allroundhelper, so I doubt they have room for young Enrique.

Team Sky have announced their line-up for the route de sud, which includes Siutsou and Knees. Reckon that is because they wont be in the TdF or because they want to get their race legs back? If it's the former, then I'd expect Eisel and Stannard to be all but guaranteed spots.

I'd imagine it's a combination of getting their race legs back and also allowing Sky to judge how good their form is, with the mountain stage presumably the key test.

Fair point but I have bolded the names where there is official confirmation from either the team or rider that they'll be selected.

I prefer Ventoso, i'm sure he could get a stage in a GT more than Rojas, who would need to be in a breakaway.

What about Dowsett for the TTT?

All interviews with Kristoff on http://www.procycling.no points to him riding the tour. I can't find a confirmation from the team, but he stated that TdS is great training for the tour, since he won't be getting much help in France either - as the team is built around Rodriguez.
