It's an ideal course for Alberto, except Chieti. For now I can't really see any threat coming from Froome or Nibali. (or any other rider)

well Chieti is not great for him but shouldn't cause him too much trouble either. The itt is of course perfect for him, almost prologue length.

I'm so looking forward to this. It has been the best one week race of the season the last two years.

Nibali has proven to be a very good ITTer on shorter courses, probably better than the post-ban Alberto and knows this race very well.
It might be closer than you think.

Don't know about Froome. Has he ever performed at a reasonable level in march?

If Froome does come, he will have as much as a 30 second headstart over Contador. Can Contador take that back on the mtf? Maybe. I think they will be equal in the itt.

That said Froome said he has his yearly bilharzia, + hes never done anything in a week stage race, so I dont think he will be going for the win.

March seems so far away-damn!!!

IMHO The parcours suits very well the Sky boys-although Contador said he's going there to win it -so I expect the 1st big test of the season for the big guns indeed.....

Froome has Bilharzia this year too?

Anyway this is Alberto's first target for the season, I fully expect him to at least podium. Nibs will be there or thereabouts as well.
