Rider profile: Andy Schleck
The younger and more talented of the Schleck brothers missed the 2012 Tour de France due to injury, and going on his form in 2013, which has seen him retire from several races, he won't be in any position to challenge for the yellow jersey.
Form can be deceptive of course, and especially in cycling, so Schleck may yet surprise the doubters with a strong showing in the 100th Tour. But anything more than a top-ten finish is probably beyond a rider so lightly raced in the last 12 months.
