I dunno. Phillipsen is no slouch. More importantly, IMHO, DQS didn't bring their super lead out train so this isn't the whole finely honed Wolfpack beating up on a bunch of Pro Con teams. They're not...

Don't overlook the value to sponsors from Sagan being a media magnet. That alone might not underwrite a 5 or 6 million euro salary, but he won't be laboring in obscurity for minimum wage.

Tour of Turkey

Cav vs. Greipel. What is this? 2014?

There should be a couple of bunch sprints and a decent list of folks needing their first win in a while or at all.
