Early Speculation On Garmin-Barracuda TdF Squad

I know it is only one day after the Giro, but I am already wondering.

Danielson has clear intentions of going for the overall.

JV has said it is Ryder's decision if he wants to do the Tour. In interviews published in April Ryder said he looks forward to doing both the Giro and Tour. How effective would Ryder be at the Tour? Super-Domestique?

Is VDV expected to shoot for the overall at the TdF?

Any other locks for the squad? David Millar? Zabriskie? Christophe Le Mevel? Dan Martin?

Talansky ready for the big show? Or does he go to the Vuelta again?

Looking forward to watching guys perform at the Dauphine and TdSuisse.

I think the most interesting question is how much you put behind the sprints. It seems like the off-season training experiment (focusing on cobbled classics) took some top-end speed from Farrar's sprint. Is Garmin ready to tip the balance of their squad toward GC ambitions?
