The spectre of a internal battle between Wiggins and Froome has hung over Team Sky ever since Froome’s emergence as a genuine Grand Tour contender at the 2011 Vuelta a España, and is surely now doing so even more. Had Wiggins won the Giro d’Italia then he would surely have wanted to go for what would likely be a once in a career opportunity to take a rare double. Now that he has been forced to withdraw he will surely be even more focused on his Tour defence to make up for his disappointment in Italy and to prove that his 2012 success was not a lucky one.
Let the games begin!

Youwish it will be shades of '86..! Reality is that with 6 weeks to go - lots of opportunities for sickness and injury, no to mention crashes in the first week of the Tour itself. Too, maybe Wiggo will concede that he is just not "on" this year.

Crazy to think that Uran would be in 2nd right now if he hadn't had to support sir Wiggens.

i'm not wishing for anything, simply noting that the knowns are that sky has 2 TdF GC contenders on the team, and that can put the whole team in a spot of bother. the reality is wiggins has plenty of time to recover from his chest infection and show up as motivated as froome to be the team leader.
