They will all be dismissed as having to work for someone else (the ds's of said teams will be denounced as idiots who ruin cycling)

If perchance a Colombiano gets to lead a team, they will be excused for being "very sick the last 2 weeks" and their results will be highlighted as above everyones expectations considering the illness , which will prove that they would have won easily without it.

Vincenzo Nibali, Joaquin Rodriguez, Robert Gesink, Sammy Sanchez, Ryder Hesjedal, Ivan Basso, Michele Scarponi, Domenico Pozzovivo, Franco Pellizotti, plus whichever Colombians show up. Gotta admit, the Giro fields is looking strong, should be a great race!

Also really glad the management of Blanco-Bank finally wised up and decided to send their best GC guy to a race where he could actually do well in.

A challenger for the title of Lanterne Rouge?

With the way Wiggins is talking and Gesink announcing his bid for Pink, I think this poll is kind of silly now.

I or someone else will make a new poll when dust settle down a little bit, there is just too much going on right now. Nobody is for sure who is going to ride the GIRO maybe except Nibali and Hesjedal
