This is going to look a lot like the 2012 Tour except Sky may pick up more than one jersey.
Zandio - Lopez - Porte - Cataldo - Kireynka - Henao - Wiggins

And 2 flat doms, maybe Swift. Perfect team xD

From that list only Kireynka I am unsure if does Giro or Tour imo.
 
Wiggins
Purito
Nibali

Rogers also said he's keen for the Giro. The TTT is a bit longer so maybe they go easy on the Spanish climbers. Save Uran for the Tour where Froome will need him.

Wiggins
Porte
Rogers
Henao
Cataldo
Kiryienka
Knees
Stannard/Eisel
Kennaugh

Ridiculous squad either way.

Uphill Wiggo, Nibali, Hesjedal are probably quite similar. The Rodriguez we've seen in the Vuelta is better, just like Quintana.

In the TT, Wiggo is way better than any of them. So Wiggo it is.
 
I'm voting Nibali but it's not a rational choice.
Sky looks terrific on paper and could very well cotrol the race same fashion it controlled TdF 2011. We still don't know if Wiggo will be in that form though.

Only hope I have is for the tricky first week and the Stelvio descent.

Quintana looks good for a podium spot. While I fear Purito will take a step back.

I like Nibali and I hope he can win it. Quintana is also one of my favourite riders, but I'm not sure that he can TT well enough to hold onto a lead from the likes of Wiggins. He may be able to shell Wiggins out the back on a tough climb though.

I would also like Basso to do well, just for old times sake.

He's not the kind of rider who would attack from far though. He wouldn't be able to sustain it against the Sky train.
How much can he gain with his usual 1km sprint on the top?

I don't even know if there are gonna be time bonuses.
