How about Evans staying at the front of BMC ahead of TJ?

I think that may change mid tour.

Vincenzo Nibali looked good winning the Giro .

Will be interesting to see who gets team leader role with BMC . Cadel ? TeJay ?

SKY has a strong team so yep gotta put Froomes name in the hat.

A.C. - been kinda quiet this spring....

BMC named Cadel a "captain" ,TeJay as "first lieutenant"

Nibali is right there as well.

Is Nibali even riding Le Tour - I thought I read somewhere he was sitting it out and then going for the Vuelta ?

Froome wants it badly and in Sky he has a team that knows how to win. Wiggo dropping out of the Giro will have had Froome sweating a bit - be very interesting to see how that plays out.

Cadel looked good at the Giro.

What about the non-banned Schleck - is he even riding these days ?

Can't wait

you are indeed correct I ASSumed he would ride the tour this year.

Andy Schleck has not looked good this spring. Constantly off the back.

Well...he would if he was riding

I really hope whoever goes for it in the Sky team, the others get right behind him.

Is it too late for Lance to make a comeback?

When I saw this so early, I thought this was the: who is taking what and doing who thread.

I think TJ needs a little more seasoning before he is ready. I do think he is the USA's best hope for a TDF win for some time to come.
