After the Tour I have to say that I think these boys could become one of the most dominant teams in the peleton over the coming years. They have two great young guns in Nibali and Kreuziger, and a couple more experienced GC roders, Pellizoti and Basso. They have a top notch sprinter in Bennati and another good climber in Sylvester Szmyd. The other great thing about this time is that they have experienced domestiques to help out the young ones, such as Noe, Kuschynski, and Quinziato.

There not quite at the frnt of the peleton yet, but could be their soon. Anyone else feel the same way?

ABSOLUTELY!! I posted nearly the same exact statements on a different thread this afternoon. This team looks very very good and are a good mix of younger guys who will only get better and older guys who can teach them how. This team could win a grand tour next year. Maybe not the Tour because AC will come guns a-blazing again and I don't think any of their guys can beat him. The Vuelta and certainly the Giro are definitely possible for them. They were on the Podium of the Giro this year and I think if they go whole hog to win it they sure can.
