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

I think he will ride the Giro no matter what, if he decided to not take part in the Giro at this point it would be all to obvious the reason. Although it wouldn't surprise me in the least if he just raced the Giro easy in order to not be too fatigued for the Tour.

PS: Love the 3rd option in the poll.

That is a pretty big if. While we know AC shows up to win.

Oh yeah, my bad.

Hopefully one of the mods will change the title so it's according to the question in the poll.

I dislike Wiggo as a character but suggesting he is gonna flee like Frank Schleck it's too much

i never agreed that wiggo choose to ride il giro because he was afraid of what it will expect him in le tour 2013. it wasn't a coward move in my opinion
but yes if he changes plans now knowing alberto will ride giro too,i will definitely change my opinion


he can't back off now

Contador hasnt confirmed anything yet. + i think Wiggins will probably still go to the giro as the plans been set in motion. He might faint though and come 12th like armstrong 2009.

For a guy with the ego of Wiggins it is plain impossible to back up after saying he's going for the Giro as primary goal.
