You slated them.
Based off a claim that no one was making.
Vaughters made it himself in an interview and twitter. A poster, who I quoted in my response also made it. Perhaps you were too busy trying to snipe at my opinion to notice that.
Some of the riders are strong, but just the team itself I do not think is as impressive as Vaughters feels it is.

The Garmin 9 packs good punch.
And there's nothing on JV's twitter to back up what you're saying either. Which is what I went by.
Given they have a Grand Tour winner
and the domestiques who helped him win that race in their 9, I stand by you being harsh.
And poor at accepting an alternate point of view.

"The other teams out there, ourselves included, because we have a sort of very deep team"
"Listen, I still think Sky is the strongest team in the Tour, absolutely. But I think the difference that people will see in our team and Sky, and even a team like Movistar, or Saxo Bank, and Sky, I think those differences will be considerably smaller than they have been at the other races.”
“They could still end up being the best team. I think we’ll give them a run for their money,” Vaughters said.
So yes, I do not think Garmin has the depth of the teams he listed although his point is valid. This is what I was referring to. No f*cking way in hell is Garmin going to give Sky a run for their money in any sense.
Hesjedal is a Grand Tour winner, but I don't see him repeating ever again especially against a field this deep.
Don't take me too seriously. GramzStrava
