Pozzovivo AG2R's Giro leader. He's going to kick Rujano's @ss big time.

I see Pozzovivo coming 2nd in the Giro.

He's going to kick Wiggins's *** in the mountains.

Yep, Dr. Pozzovivo is going to teach Wiggo how a real cyclist climbs.

Very nice curious to see how he will go at the Giro when he is fineally peaking for the giro instead of Trentino.

Vuelta will still be better for him this year though.

how do we know? pozzovivo is in one thing very good and that is peaking at the wrong times.

Gadret is not going to do the Giro, he is doing the Tour this year.

And about Pozzo peaking, he peaked at the time he wanted last year, he somehow wanted to win Trentino.

What's the point of moving to Ag2R if he wants to keep doing the Giro? I thought he would go for the Tour. Maybe the Vuelta then. And I'm not sure about all that peaking stuff. Maybe he's just not good enough along the 3 weeks; also he may be a bit overrated as a climber based on some hot performances. A bit like Anton actually after winning a couple of mountain stages in a spectacular way, namely Zoncolan (Nibali and Contador), Andorra (Mosquera, Rodriguez) and Morredero (Soler, Mosquera and Contador).

More dinero amigo. Pozzo also would have more races to choose from.

Tom Peterson is heading for Giro. He said he could do a top10 or top20 and win a stage
