Worst: Fuji or Silence-Loser
Disappointing: Lampre or Garmin
Certainly it's not Lampre's fault that Ballan got sick, but you have to believe they were expecting Ballan to win before August and more than once, at that; not to mention they probably wanted Cunego to do SOMETHING before Lombardia.
Garmin, well, I like them, like them a lot, but they've been disappointing. At the beginning of the season their main message was, 'this year we win.' What have they got besides stages at P-N and the Giro? Columbia, even with them being the Cav Show almost 24/7/365, has more guys winning races than Garmin.
Garmin would do well to move from 'win the TTT in GTs/do as good as we can in the Tour' mindset to the Saxo mindset. Garmin aims for the GTs, but they can't deliver. Saxo has a rider and a plan to win every race. They have 4 or 5 guys winning stuff all through the year. If somebody on Saxo crashes or has an off race it's not like the team's season is wrecked.
