Thought i'd start one for a change. This should be an interesting one. Will Wiggins breathing let him down, Will Gilbert wake up. Will Cobo show the Vuelta wasn't a fluke.
Will Sylvian Chavanel win a stage?
Time will tell.

Real teams only here please guys.  4

Here is mine.

Bradley Wiggins (SKY)
Rein Taaramae (COF)
John Degenkolb (ARG)
Arnold Jeannesson (FDJ)
Blel Kadri (ALM)
Joost Posthuma (RSN)
Lieuwe Westra (VCD)
Bram Tankink (RAB)
Luke Durbridge (GRE)

Now you know why it's called "another bunch of losers". eh. No Tony martin, every time I pick him he does rubbish, so good for all you guys.

Slightly to early to announce my team, with 9 hours left of the window, but what I can say is.....

After some last minute adjusting, I had to take Zabriskie as he's not riding, which freed up some credit to take Hincapie out and slot Martin in there nicely.  19

It seeMs that Eurospirt have ditched the CD in favour of tennis until stage 5! I don't do Sky TV. Is there any TV stations showing it other than online?
