Default If Contador rides the Giro, will Wiggins still ride it?

This had to be done lol

But seriously, if contador really is going to ride it I see wiggins backing off. I still think that Contador was the biggest reason for Wiggins to aim at the giro and not the tour.

He will think he has a better shot at AC in the Tour. Which will further pi$$ of Froome and the Sky train will derail.

Pretty much this. Leaving enough time for recovery before Tour

Froome to be his slave for the 2nd year running.

Astonishing dislike to Wiggins. Apparently for most of the forum he is a GT rider outlaw.

Wiggo's goal is to win the Giro, if Contador is there he simply has no chance.
