"Agostini ( potential wise seems good )/ Caruso could be good (thanks to continued Cannondale development and could win Giros'- Caruso could have won the white jersey if he did not have to ride for Basso) and Aru can certainly win if a GT if it is hilly enough. "

Caruso will never win a Giro d' Italia.

And I don't think he will try on the cobblestones...

Moser would probably be good at GTs (at least the Giro) because he has some pretty killer acceleration on short climbs. I think he will have another good season, because he will have more leadership opportunities and a race programme more tailored to the races he is good at.

Anyway, nice to see another Italian joining us. We're becoming more and more powerful here

In the few races he did with longer climbs this year he wasn't that great, so it remains to be seen if he's really that much of a climber.

Just listened to an interview where he states that he don't think he can compete on cobbles (because he needs 10 kilos more, according to him), but he does like them and he doesn't exclude he could ride PR someday. For 2013 he wants to ride the biggest races, no matter if they're one-day or stage races.

Did he say if he will get to be leader in some of the bigger races?
