... and their arch-enemies this time come from the Netherlands

The discussions about the captains can be taken in the jersey contenders thread. However, in my eyes, this team is still not team Sky standard. That doesn't mean they cannot win but they are still the underdogs in this duel. Kelderman would make a difference, but Sam Oomen might step up to fill the gap.
Less certain about Hofstede.

    Just to list the names:
    Gianluca Brambilla, Laurent Didier, Niklas Eg, Markel Irizar, Ryan Mullen, Jarlinson Pantano, Boy van Poppel, Mads Pedersen

    It is a team for winning stages. Brambilla could even geta day in pink but I doubt he will make top 10 GC.  Jarlinson Pantano will win some big stage...

    The Italian GC hope is with the Arabians now.

    The team is decent but not great, with an emphasis on climbers but some decent flatlanders too. Vegard Stake Laengens wind shadow is probably the best in the field, but still I fear that as a team they might suffer in the wind.

    that's an italian pro-conti team for the breakaways and early attacks, but Mareczko can eventually win a stage  :)
