It makes me really sad to think that teams like Greenedge get automatic invites for this whereas Colnago or Coledeportes for whom this is the main event, will not be allowed.

I guess maybe we wont see team schleck have such a bad team like last year since Machado or something will go, Sky will have Cav and Garmin CVV and Farrar, so the other WT teams won't be as bad.

Rabo may be a let down though. Who else, BMC? Despite being a super team do they have anyone for the Giro besides Tchopp?

Project it4i
Colombia Coldeportes
Farnese Vini
Androni Giocattoli

I have a feeling that one or two of my first two options won't be selected.

The Hitch, I imagine BMC's team for the Giro will be
Ballan
Santambrogio
Santamorita
Pinotti
Tschopp
Blythe
Kohler
Wyss
Lodewyck

I certainly would be taking such a team considering the riders and the strong Italian influence.

He is banned until 3 May so he'll be a bit useless in the Giro even if some team signs him up to ride it.

I don't share the excitement about Coldeportes, i my opinion Colnago doesn't deserve a spot while 1t4i would be better for Vuelta.

So apart from obvious Androni, Acqua Sapone and Farnese Vini i'd like to see TT1 led by Efimkin bros, El Fares, Bertogliati, Kocjan, Reijnen, Bodrogi, Antomarchi and one of Colli, Cousin or perhaps Laengen if he'd be ready for 3 weeks.
