Who will get the 4 GIRO wildcards: Qhubeka, Katusha, Farnese, Europcar, Colnago, Netapp or IAM?

Maybe Katusha will be re-instated in the world tour.

If Purito isn't coming, no way Katusha will get a wc.

There are only 3 wildcards left: Androni automatically received one as "Italian champions".

Farnese will not be left out. They were great last year, for a wildcard team.

I have nothing against climbers' showdown, but with a rider who can put 4-5 minutes on climbers in that tt Giro would be spectacular.
Pff, who needs TTer's, all they do is ruin the race. Like the 2012 Tour.

Androni, Vini-Fantini, Colombia, and Katusha (should Purito choose to stay with the team). If Purito doesn't choose to stay than Colnago instead.
