Default Bertie vs. Wiggo at Tirreno?

Double post, but here goes.... Looks like Contador and Wiggins will both be racing Tirreno this year.

Some of the walls in Tirreno are probably too short for Bertie and too steep for Wiggo. May be too early in the year for Bertie, but he'll have a lot to prove vs. Wiggo, who should be at his 95% (if like last year).

Thoughts?

Too early for Alberto? No sir, you must be mistaken. Alberto wins the whole year through. And yes Alberto is better on longer climbs but he is more explosive than Wiggo so he should beat Wiggo there. I don't know if there's a tt though. That could give Wiggins the edge.

Yes, will be interesting to see how Wiggo copes. Shane Sutton says he's working on Brad's ability to go with short surges on climbs. (Can't find the link; sorry.)

Also, there's Evans. Think he had a great Tirreno the year he won the Tour. If he's determined to set right what went wrong last year, I hope he's in the mix too.
