Going by Dowsett's ITV interview, he sounds like he has about as much form as Michael Matthews.

Sky's TTTs have gone to **** lately.
thats true, but still it should be a big battle between Froome, TJ and Sagan for Jaune, ...Chris has couple of seconds of advantage.Also depends on number of riders, luckily only 2 stages left to crash for their domestics ;)

WT TTTs this season:

Romandie: 1st (similar team to TDF, with Pate and Viviani instead of Koenig, Porte and Thomas)
Giro: 9th (Porte, Koenig, Sitsov and Kiryenka have TTing history, the other 5 were climbers or sprinters)
Dauphine: 6th (similar team to TDF, with Boswell and Deignan instead of Koenig, Porte and Thomas)

Think they will do top 3... Mostly because of high morale due to things going well...

A late TTT like this is even more about the dynamics of current race then an early one would be..

Some teams might be limited in performance due to loss of riders and things not going according to plan..
Some fold under such pressure and others deliver...

I expect pretty big time differences though.. maybe not in top-5 but apart from that..

Will be very interesting...

I hope Sky and Tinkov will somehow lose about 1:30 to Movistar and Astana.
I think crashes will be needed for that...

Anyone with a weather forecast?

That would be great but I don't see it happen
Nope. They have been racing very smartly. Bennati and Rogers have kept Saxo very well placed all race and Thomas and Co. have also done a very good job. Astana and Movistar have had to do too much fire fighting, like in the echelons a few days ago.

Sky have the least damaged team. I think they are going to take it. A guy who Dowsett is both injured and in poor shape, so don't expect Movistar to win it.

1. Sky
2. BMC
3. Movistar
No way in hell movistar does better than tinkoff

Think it'll be between SKY and Tinkoff, with BMC as 3rd. Astana not far behind either. Moviestar will loose 30 sec to the best team.

I dont expect big gaps between the top GC teams. Only Katusha could loose a minute.

What do you mean by that? Sammy is historically a very good TTer, though granted he's not as good as he used to be. He's won several, including in a GT, I recall.
