    At first glance it looks like a step backwards for Tyler, but I don't think Garmin has been giving him much support the last two seasons. Maybe this new team will key...

    Who did you have in mind?

    My guess is that great GC riders aren't all that easy to come by. And steady top 5/top 10 GC finishers are pretty marketable and still bring in a good buck for themselves...
