While been surprised by his new found TT ability, his climbing was much worse last year.

Heck even in the TT, he lost time on the climbs while doing well on the flat.

Samu is another interesting contender and at 35 after recovering from a injury, I would think a win is very difficult but a podium spot isn't beyond him.

Good to see Nibali getting strong support. He's still my bet for victory.
Agreed, he needs to improve in the climbs, but im sure he will after he is fully recovered from his injuries. For now, he is not a sure bet as it depends how much he improves. But I'm willing to take that bet.

I agree that I didn't see the Stelvio stage, but I saw the other stages, and he didn't work in those. and I'm not "that guy" my name at this forum is Leendert82.

LOL @ this. He worked for Cav and Uran in multiple stages throughout the Giro. Looks like everyone noticed that but you.

That was already the case before his leg break. In the Pais Vasco TT last year, he did better than anyone on the descent/flat... and he had about the 40th time or so on the climb. Since two years he really has to drag himself up the climbs, it's sad but it's true.

What always surprised me is that Breukink kept on saying "Gesink needs a climb in a TT"... no he doesn't, quite the contrary actually. That Breukink really had his finger on the pulse.

He did work a bit, like Tony Martin did for Cav in HTC: ride one or two k on the front in the final. But that's as good a way as any to avoid crashes, so it works both ways.

WT points wise it may be better to send Cunego to an anonymous tp10 in the Tour, 2011 style and have Scarponi doing something in the Giro.

Surely Scarponi should be looking at a lifetime suspension for a 2nd offence now?
