Looks like a great tour team to me. Would love to have Martinez and Pinot, along with the popular suspects of Chavez, Dumoulin and Aru. And if Mas and Soler would show they've been saving form for this, a really good team. But what's up with Soler? I was counting on him this year. What a bust.Tour team:
Marc Soler (?) Question mark as they haven't given the final line up yet.
Hmmmm......Maybe a halfway decent lineup for the Tour.

This may be the first time I've had a competent Tour team. Your guess on Soler is as good as anyone's. Granted I know his big goal of the year is supposed to be the Giro, so his form being a bit behind Mas is understandable. I'm more worried about Mas. Why is his form worse than Valverde's? Valverde's bit goals were supposed to be the Worlds (unlikely now), LBL and la Vuelta which are all after the Tour. Mas' goal is the Tour. However, I'm with you on having been counting on him although for me it was counting on him and Mas as far neither are doing anywhere near close to what I had hoped for. I guess at least Soler has that win back at Mallorca at the start of the season?Looks like a great tour team to me.

Our teams are not so different. This is mine:And here is mine, 11 riders, one third of my team is taking part in the spectacle:
Not much for the sprint stages, let me correct that: there's nothing for the sprint stages. I am hoping for Kragh Andersen and Mohoric in breaks. Hopefully Mohoric will be allowed. Would also be good if Elissonde is allowed to not only babysit Porte. The two youngsters Hirschi and Kämna? No idea what to expect. Dumo and Pinot for the podium of course. Bardet to finish 7th. in the GC. And what about Aru? Is he still thinking of GC? Would love to see Aru target the polkadot with a stage win or two! Kuss showed some great form in the Dauphiné, but I doubt he will get many points. Kwiatkowski? Not a clue what to expect.
What do you wish for? A potential podium candidate and multiple stage winner nobody else thought of?Dumoulin, Tom
I'm not sure what to expect. Either almost everyone has them, or they might be helpers, or maybe go for a stage or Kom or an anonymous Top20 GC. Definitely looking forward to it all, though.
Mostly I wish for a very subpar team... Just one or two guys who'll be mostly helpers and then go on to surprise me with a stage win or two. Every time my team looked as good on paper as that one I am massively disappointedWhat do you wish for? A potential podium candidate and multiple stage winner nobody else thought of?
