Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

Movistar long list for TDF. Quintana, Valverde + 7 of the remaining 12.

Betancur a surprise inclusion... but then, he hasn't DNF'd since Flanders, so maybe this is his time.

    Well this alleviates the Movistar leadership issues somewhat for most of the pre-TdF races as Quintana will only race three times in preparation for July - Oro y Paz, Catalunya and Pais Vasco.

    According to leaked info (:P) in an interview with a Sky DS one week ago (ie. pre ASO won't let Froome start news):
    • Mikel Landa is a bit of a difficult guy to cooperate with, based on team Sky's experiences.
    • Team Sky thinks the relation between Quintana and Landa won't necessarily work very well throughout the tour.
    • Valverde is a very likely yellow jersey leader at the first rest day
    • both Landa and Quintana cooperate well with Valverde, problems start when the two "juniors" need to support each other
