Maybe Katusha will be re-instated in the world tour.
If Katusha get re-instated, that means theres only 2 wildcard left (Androni already have theirs) and no way will Farnese and Colnago will be left out.

I think in the next Giro D'Italia we could see many surprises in the GC. At first a Franco Pellizzoti who has comeback at the 2009 level, Carlos Betancur, who has finished 4° in Trentino, Winner Anacona, which in his first year as a professional rider was near the bests climbers on the Vuelta, the leaders of Coldeportes if Acquarone invite the team, Steven Kruivswijk (if he confirmed the 2011 level) Wilco Kelderman, benefited by the ITT, Robert Kiserlovski, the GC guy of Radioshack which did a good race in 2010, Gianluca Brambilla, if he improves in Omega Pharma, Mikel Landa and Rafal Majka, and Henao or Porte as team leaders if Wiggins finally doesnt ride. Who knows if Aru and Dombrowski will ride. The logic says no but if they ride i can see them as surprises of the race and Superdomestiques.

Changed my mind; I voted for Nibali, but obviously Gesink will win now that he is participating

I'll stick with Nibali, but I like this:

"he [Gesink] is going to Italy with the maglia rosa in mind, inspired in part by Ryder Hesjedal's victory in 2012."

Realistically speaking,

Nibali, number of GT podiums: 4, of which 1 win.
Gesink, number of GT podiums: 0

Then again, the same went for Hesjedal before last year

Nibali will come to the giro with a very strong squad (only Sky might be stronger on paper). And with the spirit of Vino I can't see why this is even a disscusion?
