If Bennati and Petacchi could manage the Poggio, then I'm sure Greipel could have also, and placed respectably. You can say that his palmares isn't that of Cavendish's, but in the slightly smaller races he has been sent to, he's absolutely made the most of them. Wasn't he the second winningest rider last year? He's more than made the case to be riding the premier races. At HTC, maybe the races could be divided up in a way that better reflects his ability. As for another team, Milram seems like the obvious one, although then Ciolek would become the 'second' sprinter.
