I think your both wrong. It's a very short prologue which would serve sky no good to win and have to Marshall the peloton for so long. Even going back a couple of years ago. Contador purposefullynever put his team in that position until he needed to. No team with real intentions will be stupid enough to do it. Sky need to.conserve as much energy apossible if they are to help cav get his wins, help wiggo in the hills and when.they need to take on the duties of the yellow jersey team.
Tactically spot on and I agree. Sky will not want the yellow jersey after the prologue.
More likely stage 9 but even better to be after stage 20. However I agree with John D that I believe Sky will take seconds wherever they can.
