Very interesting, Henao/Uran for GC or just looking for sprint and breakaway wins?

Will be interesting to see how it pans out.

Got to be Uran for GC, not a bad call, but pretty much means I doubt he will ride TdF

I think only Cav and Eisel will be TdF out of those

Will Swifty be this year's Renshaw for Mark C? (i.e. last lead-out)

Surely GT will be last lead out seeing as Brailsford named him as the best lead-out in the world?

Depends on how much training Swifty has been doing with Cav, because ones been on the road and the other doing alot of track work.

Kennaugh's coming off the track aswell, GT is racing in Romandie just now and is getting his legs back to road work.

I doubt Uran will be a GC guy because some of the climbs.

Henao and Flecha for me, but doubt even they can keep to the big guns up the climbs

So sprint and breakaway stage wins then? Or just flat? No-one stands out as a really strong GC prospect. Fantasy wise that might play straight into Cavs hands if he's Plan A.

With Cav doing TdF as well i cant see him finishing the Giro so stage wins in the first week and see how it goes from there.

Surprise package might be Henao, he did well in the recent classics.
