HTC are all about stage and race wins not GC unfortunately. They can pull back breaks on the flat/up and down stages but can't really defend the jersey on genuine mountain stages. If Mick is serious about a shot at a GT it won't be with HTC.
The other worrying thing is his TTing. He really should have put 30secs + on Valverde (and Menchov etc) in the ITT and put the overall beyond their reach. Mick's TTing in GT's and stage races has been only solid at best for years. ITT is HIS discipline, he should be putting big gaps into the non specialists but more often than not he's getting beaten by them.
He is a 3 time World ITT Champion
ITT is HIS discipline

You mean ITT was his discipline...he lost so much weight (and muscle) since those days.Maybe he should of stuck with it...but then again if he hadn't hit the barrier that year in the TDF he might have won it!.
