Sky haven't even done a good TTT this year, have they?maltiv said:Looks like they decided the start list before Sky finalized their roaster...they're not exactly favourites, so shouldn't start last.
OPQS will win this easily. GreenEdge 2nd, BMC 3rd.
Sky was 4th 23 seconds back in the Tirreno-Adriatico TTT, 3rd 9 seconds back in Qatar, 5th in the Vuelta TTT 12 seconds back. So no, for how many time trialist's they have they haven't had any really great TTT results that I can recall this season.Ferminal said:Sky haven't even done a good TTT this year, have they?

200-170-140-130-120-110-100-90-80-70 points for top 10 teams, winner team get same points for winning TDF (If this is correct, WTF is UCI thinking?)
Edit: I mean just give points for WCRR then, what is that big deal of that TTT?
It´s to close to the other worlds races, many spare the energy for the TT.ansimi said:Interesting. Would Saxo have been theoretically eligible for such points if they'd kept Contador in their TTT squad?
It's a hard race so it makes sense to have an incentive. I think it was the teams who worked to get this race in place in the first place though. Many don't seem to be sending top squads. Might have been better not to debut this event in an Olympic year?
Orica, OPQS and BMC teams look good.
