Sticking with Nibali for the win.

Regarding the riders, I think you can safely include Agnoli and Vanotti in the Astana lineup even though there aren't any confirmations yet.

Not sure if confirmed, but Ulissi is clearly going. He talked about the Giro in some recent article. Seemed ambitious, too.

Well they did rather well in last Giro it has to be said. Two podiums ( 2nd place twice ) along other good results.
