I think a lot of people here just vote for their favorite riders in polls.

It seems like there will be some very disappointed fans come this May..
Purito I can see because many voted before Katusha was denied WT status and he was more likely, IMO, to do the Tour since he passed on it in 2012. Hesjedal I agree with you. If he comes to the Giro with the same form as 2012 he has to be considered as one of the contenders. Although I can't remember if I voted at all or not.

Edit: My vote is in for Hesjedal, partly because I believe he can win and partly because I really don't want Wiggins to get the win although he is fully capable if he shows similar form to 2012.

People probably still have the 2012 Tour in their minds. I think Wiggins will be favourite and you have to admit, the Tour win was a dominant one. I think Ryder is the danger. Nibali and Rodriguez the others. Wiggins has the TT advantage.

If only this poll had a 'Thomas Dekker' option it would be easy

I thought that Capecchi would lead Movistar? I'm quite sure that I heard him talk about aiming for Giro top-10.

"But I see myself in the top three and for the others to beat me, they'll have to be at 110%."
