No matter who´ll start the Giro for Sky, Wiggins will have a strong team. Sky and Astana will have the strongest lineups probably.
astana's team is so overrated. I take androni's team over that any day of the week.

Yeah, I actually forgot them, but you´re right, they´ll have a great team for the Giro.

Almost every rider from this team has the potential to win a stage. pellizotti and Sella will be to watch in the mountains, Gavazzi in the sprints, all the others in the breakaways.

I don't know if gavazzi will ride, but with:

pellizotti
rubiano
jackson
sella
ochoa
chiarini
felline
tomas gil
reda

mother of god, what a team for the mountains all of them are potentially top 30 riders in the mountains., having 9 guys so equally strong is rare

Was looking forward to see Majka riding his own cahnce (especially after his 2012 Vuelta performance). But, alas, it seems his knee, which kept him out of the Giro last year, is acting up again (keeping him out of TA so far).

Overrated? we do not call it Astana 09 or anything, but

Brajko
Tira
Kessiakoff

Could all top 15 this race (brajko top 10) if they where captains, so your Androni team can suck it

And yet there's only 4 on Ryo's proposed team. Is Pellizotti Colombian now?
