Who do you guys think are going to be the ten best climbers at this years edition at the tour?

Now that we know who is still in the race after today's feard cobble stone stage there should be a better chance to predict who is gonna do well in the mountain stages.

Who is gonna be the top driver in the mountains for each team?
 
I'll have a go - but it's a tricky question as what do you mean by "best". I've chosen to exclude good climbers who are likely to sacrifice themselves for their GC leader (eg: Szmyd, Kloden, Horner, Sorenson).

In some sort of order:

Contador
Schleck
Gesink
J Rodriguez
Cadel
Gadret
Basso
Armstrong
Menchov
Wiggins

I thought it would be easy to pick 10 - but i've left out some good climbers.
