If JR wants to win Tour, he will most certainly pass Giro. So is W. Maybe JR feels it is about the time for him to give Tour another crack, TIME is running out for him and on paper next year Tour suits him a little better than Giro. Rumor is long ITT in Giro is setted to attract W, but not sure how is it going to play out in the end. it is understandable, 100 is attractive number for any rider.

J-Rod seems to be 100% focused on TdF and willing to dump the Katusha contract in the toilet. Inclined to think Scraponi now, but will wait for next poll installment.

I don't think Gesink is a serious threat to the overall victory. He stands a pretty fair chance of a podium, though.

Is W really going for G-T double?

Henao will do the Giro. Hopefully co-leader with Wiggo.

No leadership role, just part of the train.
Wiggo is the man.
