Team Androni Giocattoli-Venezuela has already got a invitation to the Giro dŽItalia 2013 because that they for the third year in a row have won the Champione dŽItalia.

their biggest chance is at the vuelta without possibly andalucia and cofidis

Tour: Europecar, Saxo, Saur-Sojasun, Cofidis
Not sure Coldeportes can get an invite here, Europecar, Saxo, and Cofidis definitely will get invites. I think Saur-Sojasun could get the final invite over Coldeportes just because they are a French team.

Vuelta: Cofidis, Caja Rural, saxo, andalucia/Coldeportes
Hard to call this one, Cofidis and Caja Rural will definitely get invites. If Contador says he wants to go for the Vuelta win after the Tour then I think Saxo will get a invite or they might just get a invite because they are the team of Contador. Coldeportes could definitely be competitive here but Andalucia being spanish goes against their chances of a invite. This is the GT where I could see a Coldeportes not getting a invite because of Saxo not getting into the WT.



Did ASO say they might do that? Kind of counterproductive to reducing teams to 8 riders.
the tour will have 22 teams. no more, also with just 8 riders

still saxo won't be invited to the giro without contador. nobody cares about kreuziger

I think Saxo could get a invite based on what they would bring to the race. Saxo could bring more to the race then other possible wildcard teams like Netapp, or Colnago.

I agree that Kreuziger is overrated as a GC contender but he was still able to win a stage of this years Giro.

Bennati and Kreuziger won 2 GT stages this year- of course SBS could be invited to the Giro. Also Bennati could go quite well at races like SB (he did good work for Cancellara this year) and could enjoy a career renaissance under Riis.
I want Coldportes to be invited as well but i could understand if SBS were more likely to go to the Giro over CC.

farnese, colnago, coldeportes(corti), argos, would all be selected before saxo, unless like I said saxo would pay money like netapp did this year. and there are only 3 wildcards to give

haven't read it here yet, but corti has stated in a recent interview that they have 90% chance of doing the giro or the tour next year. especially aso love them and to me they have biggest chance of doing the tour and vuelta.
