Regarding the field... As a cycling fan, I'll be very disappointed if we don't see Wiggins - Contador duel in a GT they both ride to win. And that's the bottom line of each my comment about the two.
This Giro is great opportunity for it.
If it doesn't happen this season, I hope it will next. Giro, Tour or Vuelta, it doesn't matter. Only that they're in top form and riding to win.

I would think that they, as the competitors that they are, want the exact same thing, to prove themselves against the best in the sport. It makes the victory in the end that much more satisfying.
