/ Team Sky line-up for the 2013 Tour de France?
Froome, Porte, Kiryienka, Boasson Hagen, Lopez, Thomas, Knees, Eisel, Siutsou
I donít expect theyíll change too much from the Dauphine squad.
Pete Kennaugh had a good ride at the Dauphine, but I think theyíll opt for more experience in leading the peloton with Knees and Eisel.
Stannard canít be far off the line-up, but Siutsou showed heís in good nick at the Route du Sud and would offer more on the uphill bits, so Iím taking a punt on him for a place.
Then again, they might opt for more climbing support with the likes of Uran and Henao...
I see the squad has now been announced -
Stannard and Kennaugh instead of Knees and Eisel
Movistar will be ones to watch as well. Nairo Quintana is a good outside bet for a result.
