Looks like you cant have the favorite 4. Froome, Porte, Cav and Sagan. Dammit
Hmmmm, the Sprinters a bit difficult to pick, Cav, Sagan and Greipel haven't really had any head to head battles this year, which to choose.......
Going by the Giro results, Cav is usually a sure bet. But Sagan isn't/wasn't too bad in the Tour de suisse.
Yep Cav was great in the Giro, but who was his competition ? Sagan was good in Tour of Calif as well. Will Largely depend on the lead out train... The other consideration is Sagan is a little more versatile than Cav. Greipel is the smokng gun.
agree, if the lead out train for Cav is there, it will difficult for anyone to beat Cav. Sagan is a ninja and will suck anyones wheel to get in the right position and I find he doesn't need a lead out as much as Cav. Griepel will be there for sure, but I dont think he has the same stamina to hold onto speed as well as Cav. It will be a tough choice.
Remember not all the "sprint" stages are free from medium mountains and hills near the finish. Cav can only win sprints he contests and two fifth places score better than a single stage win.
Tough call as always. I always want to get a domestique who goes out to be a wildcard stage winner. I've got my team in, but will do some research to lock them in finally.
Well at this stage I've got even less reason than normal to watch flat stages... but so be it. Bring on the big hills and may a certain English juggernaut of a team not have the success everyone's expecting from them. I should probably base my decisions on who I think will win not who I want to win.
But that would be boring.
