Luke Rowe is just a "domestique", in other words his job will be just to protect Froome and keep him out of trouble, drop back to the team car and give him his drink bottles. If and when Froome takes the "maillot jaune" his job will then be to ride a "tempo" at the front of the peloton on the flat stages. He won't be going for personal glory.

I know the role he is performing on the team, but sky appear to be loaded with Super domestiques and he is, well just a domestique. There was also some chat about that suggested he had a team leader role (not in a I want to win thing, but there some was kind of intangibles that he brought to the team)

Not an expert, but Rowe is a pretty strong rider in the classics (though i didn't watch them this year so no idea how he did). To me he seems like the type of rider who, should froome be in yellow, would sit on the front of the peleton all day holding a steady pace, then leave the others to it on the climbs.

I think you'll see froome stuck to Rowe's wheel and rather it will be Kiriyenka and Knees who are doing most of the hard kms on the front. I think his role as road captain is basically Froome's minder. More likely it'll be kwiatkowski, henao and landa going back to get the bottles on the flatter stages

The Wild Card is always a tricky one. Go for an extra climber/GC rider or a sprinter? I generally go for the extra climber or all-rounder. There are this year, however, more sprint stages than hilly ones ...
More tinkering to be done yet!

Does anyone wonder if we might see a surprise winner this year? There seem to be question marks against most of the favourites' names.

Yes, as I hinted in my reply to GG.
I'll either finish last in Velogames or be considered a genius judging by the team I've put in! (plenty of tinkering-time left though!)

Depends on how you mean 'surprise'. I think it could be but it won't be someone completely leftfield out of nowhere.

It's what I always do and I'm fairly convinced it's not the best strategy. I tried to go heavy on French, particularly FDJ, 4 point riders on the (very convoluted) basis that they may be inspired in their home tour.
