Thanks.Christian said:snipped some..
Nizzolo is doing Tour of Luxembourg. If he could carry his form from the Giro he should have some nice opportunities there. For the Tour I think he is too cooked from the Giro though, let's not forget this was only his 2nd GT. I would say the same counts for the whole Giro team, but I might be wrong. That would mean no Popovych and no NZL guys. Although Roulston left early and is now doing Suisse, he is the only one that I could imagine doing it. And Hondo maybe too.
My best bets with the new info would be Rast, Didier, Irizar, Hermans. I am pretty confident the remaining riders will come from that group.
As for the goals I think it can only be stage wins and top-10 for Zubeldia. Team GC could be possible but will be more difficult this year I think. Stages will also be tough, pretty much only possible from breakaways. My prediction is they will be invisible throughout the race and Zubeldia will finish somewhere between 8th and 12th
Can't say I'm a fan of the 8-12 GC concept, but Shack aren't alone with the idea.
Could Andy try and go for Polka dots if he falls down the GC rather early?
The Voeckler vs Kessiakoff battle last year was pretty entertaining.
