Default Who will win the 2013 GIRO? (Second round)

The former poll is out of date Let's just begin a new one!

We'll probably need other 4-5 until next May

Wiggo. If he stays off the booze.

The people who think that Nibali will be any competition to him need to rewatch the Tour.

I voted Nibali just because I think Wiggo will not be at his best.

If Wiggins goes for the win- Wiggins.

If he doesnt - Gesink.

ps, claiming to go for the win but losing 10 minutes on a mountain stage will not count as going ftw.

Lo Squalo to win it, Samu and Purito to round out the podium (no particular order for 2nd and 3rd).

Different team, different parcours, different climbs, different competition, different level of motivation. Just because Wiggo beat Nibali on a course custom made for him doesn't necessarily mean he can do it again in a completely different race.

Gotta go with a fanboy pick as this is impossible to predict, anyway. I'll take Pellizotti or Di Luca (assuming he finds a team ).

Rujano should be in this poll. Ok he will probably fail spectacularly and watching a certain prominent poster give excuses will provide some nice side entertainment.

But he says hes going for it. Maybe it will go right this time.
