Yes,it was a nice performace,but IMO Colombia will win at least one stage + they should fight for the climber jersey.

I think Kessiakoff and Bozic will ride for Astana too. Still, some interesting non-Giro names like Sanchez, Chavanel, Gesink and Cancellara.

Kessiakoff is confirmed, I forgot him. I don't know about Bozic but I put him anyway.

Yes, many unusual riders this year

They just weren't as bad as Milram in past

Who's going to be Saxo's leader?
I have impression that Kreuziger will experience rebirth.

Dombrowski or Kelderma for white but Agostini i think could also go well.

I am hoping Porte is stronger than Wiggins and can top 3. However that might not happen so i shall say Nibali, Gesink then Wiggins, with Hesjedal and Samu also challenging.

I cannot see Scarponi and Basso winning but they will be factors and will probably be amongst the most consistent. Hopefully a good Cobo shows up.
