It has been a pretty good week for OGE with great wins to Impey and Albasini, as well as Tuft (riding for Canadian National team). Along with that have been the efforts of Cooke, Alby and Alba to knock off Sagan. All have come very close but not quite there. Weening was also terrific, along with Durbridge at the Dauphine. So hopefully things are progressing pretty well for Le Tour. Probably the only one having a bit of a rocky run has been Gossy with his fall in Italy and then problems with the "runs" in Stage 2 of Slovenia. Very interesting and funny backstage passes, find the latest one from Stage 3 here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQXc_AcoHJk&feature=youtu.be
Great background and geography on Slovenia as well, great work on the backstage passes...they are a lot of fun to watch.
There is still no mention that I have seen of Albasini riding the TdF but it would seem like he has to be picked. Definites still seem to be;
Langeveld......has he recovered well enough since his crash?
O'Grady...........hopefully ok after his crash
Last spot...Meyer, Cooke
, Davis, Vaitkus
, Tuft, Howard, Sulzberger
