is it? Last year we had Nibali and Betancur in front of him + Wiggins / Hesjedal who did not deliver, this year we have Porte, Quintana and Purito instead. All three are relatively certain to fight for a podum of course, but apart from them there is not that much diffenrece, and remember, odds on Wiggins to win the Giro were something like ~even last year for example

Right but didn't he also gain like 30 on Galibier purely because no one gave a crap about him.

Here is how I would fit the 2014 field into the 2014 gc

Richie Porte
Joaquim Rodriguez
1 Nibali
Horner if anywhere near his 2013 level
Astana Scarponi
2  Rigoberto Uran - 2014 Uran (-?)
Ivan Basso feeling something special in the air
3 Cadel Evans
4 Michelle Scarponi
5 Carlos Betancur
Cadel Evans a year older
6 Przemyslaw Niemiec

  • Despite the self-serving data benders and associated propaganda to the contrary, I am led to believe that there are pockets of organised, highly sophisticated dopers, even within 'new age' cycling teams. Personally, I don't accept that the 'dark era' has ended, it has just morphed into a new guise.
