Just imagine the Froome support at the Tour. Nieve, Konig, Roche, Porte, Kennaugh, Henao, Henao and G. Very very strong.

Doesn't make sense if you ask me, the team needs to be balanced, while we can quickly agree that the 2nd best climber is probably more important than any other dom. There is only so many mountains and the team needs to be strong elsewhere too. Generally it seems like they always look to have a back-up GC guy or 2, 3-4 climbers, 1-3 flat doms, 1-3 intermediate doms to pace early climb but also needs to shelter Froome on the flat. In these you have to fit in your road captain and somebody that rides the same size bike as your leader.

My Guess:
Chris Froome
Vasil Kiryienka
Leopold König
Mikel Nieve
Wout Poels
Richie Porte
Nicolas Roche
Ian Stannard
Geraint Thomas
