not sure if you guys are serious, even Guardini won a stage last year so why shouldn't Kittel do the Giro?! He can go for a win in stage 6 and everything else is a bonus

First Argos need to get their sprint train sorted out. They absolutely suck so far this season. And sprints are the only stages they can win.

Train's been fine on a couple of occasions - just Degenkolb looks to be about 25% short on Vuelta watts.

And the reason why is probably because he is building form and is at 75% of his 100% Vuelta form.

Whilst that is a stunningly obvious observation, it's also a little odd for someone to have peak watts that reliant on form; suggests he is very much a classics man who sprints rather than a sprinter who will have a go at the classics.

Degenkolb riding the Giro would make much more sense than kittel.

Also agree with the poster who said Ferrari (Lampre) will ride.

I remember him saying it, but can;t find a link.
