Yes, he sure showed them in the TDF

You know the Eyetalians, even way into the 3d week of last year's Giro they didn't care one iota about mr. Hesjedal. Same will happen to Bobby G.

Gesink is at least known as a once promising rider among italian fans and medias (at least the cycling related).
Ryder was a complete nobody before the Giro.


Anyway I'm gonna flood all italian cycling forums about Gesink big potential for Giro 2013 so he won't get in unnoticed

those 5 guys all have a bigger name on the international cycling scene than Gesink, so what's new?

Isn't there a big interest conflict between Rabottini and Garzelli being on the same team? Both of them should have the maglia azzuro as main goal. Although Rabottini might decide to step up and focus on a the gc (I think Garzelli's done with that after 2009).

Y su primer año, ya tiene su particular misión: “Hacer el Giro con Wiggins. Su primer objetivo es el Giro y quiere correr con el mismo grupo todas las carreras anteriores. Así que seguiré su mismo calendario prácticamente, empezaré en Mallorca y Algarve, nos concentraremos en el Teide (Tenerife) y seguiremos en Tirreno-Adriático y Volta a Catalunya. En mi caso, disputaré la Vuelta al País Vasco, por ser la de casa, y antes del Giro está previsto Trentino, aunque podría ser también Romandía, dependerá de la condición de Wiggins”, avanza.
