Default Who Will Win Tirreno Adriatico?

This thread just had to be made

This race is so promising. If we get half the action there was in Oman it'll prob be one of the best editions lol

Don't know, I want to vote Alberto but I am not sure. Anything can happen. Actually, I expect Froome to put 30" into Alberto in the tt

I'll jump on Evans early.

He needs to show some good early season form after last years health problems and the TOO is giving him some kms to loosen the racing cobwebs.

I think he'll be fit and aggressive in T-A.

No way! I'm expecting very small gaps between the top GC guys in the TT.

I voted for Contador, although I'm sure it's gonna be close between him and Froome.

Honestly I don't care much who's gonna win. It's gonna be amazing anyway.
