Finally!
Surprisingly voted for...Vincenzo.

Not happy with a couple of choices, a colombian and FFS Scarponi?
And Quintana not there?

I thought Ryo told us Quintana is not going.
And Scarponi, well, he's just as embarassing as Basso but I wanted to put more than just one italian in the poll

Scarponi will be back in business. Podium contender for sure.

Yes he is, option 9.

Though his programme has already been announced and its Tour Vuelta.

Thanks. I guess Henao/Uran combo is option 9

Poor guys, for some posters and Sky, they're always the mules, the donkeys, the columbians...but never mentioned by their names. No much respect for them.

PS: Not talking about you or the OP.

Actually, the sentence will make more sense if you replace Nibali for Wiggins.
