One spot open, or only 8-men teams?

Hope it is a spot waiting for Il Killer

My thoughts exactly has to be a sign naming 8 riders this early. Just can announce the 9th yet cause they still have to announce Il Killer is going to wear yellow (vini jersey) but mainly pink ofcourse this may.

The 9th spot will be filled by the rider who impresses this season. The Giro does not start next week. Hopefully Di Luca starts a bicycle store soon; time for new riders.

so lets see:

GC:
1 di Luca
2 Basso
3 Scarponi

KOM
Garzelli

Points
Ale-Jet

The foreigners can pick up some of the other pointless jerseys. Perhaps this will get Pat to rethink the globalization project.

That doesn't make any sense. The goal of globalization is to spread cycling around the world, to countries that never had much of competitive cycling etc. Nothing to do with old Italian riders dominating Giro ( very highly unlikely too )

there are many ways to define globalization: location of races, rider nationality, fan base and lastly the nations who will pick up the tab.

Anyway Di Luca winning would take us back a few years (again).

But that's not going to happen ( if you mean GC as you did in previous post ) I think everyone with some logic and understanding of cycling in last few years would know. Di Luca is old and past his best for the GC by long way. He could take a win though somewhere.

Not trying to sound like di*ck here btw
