/ TdF 2013
I can see a Hinault-Lemond style friendly in-team rivalry developing here. Always good for media copy and hence sponsors...
I assume that the use of the word "friendly" to describe Bernard and Greg was tongue in cheek ;-)
It won't work - one of them will leave Sky by 2014 and I guess it'll be Froomey.
Interesting speculation on whether this is just to put the other teams in more of a quandry about who to chase, who to leave and who the actual leader was after the really poor showing in the Olympics where Team Sky (oh, erm, sorry, Team GB) were just marked out of the race. Let's face it, the rest of the field were more concerned with GB not winning than anything else. Same could happen in TdF, so Wiggins' comments could have been calculated to combat that.

July is a bit off. There are a lot of things that could crop up between then and now which could cause an obvious form differential. Getting just one of your best guys to the start line on best form is challenging enough. While they managed it last year, they'll need to make a fair amount of luck to do it again.
Will be fun if they do.
