Is S. Nibali the Nibali who dropped the other Nibali earlier in the year?


Exactly!

I like this prediction.

Antonio winning would be so troll :D

I have consulted with the shaman, who has looked at the insides of dead animals, and he told me the Oomens are good

I think he could get a nice 14th place.

Well, he was 11th last year, he might do better now. Last year he was eager to follow Moscon's attack way too early on Civiglio, maybe he learned some lessons.

His results in Monuments/250km races are very good for a 23 year old guy and you'd expect him to improve.
Of course a top10-15 is more likely than a win, but you never know.

He was also easily one of the best 10 riders in the Worlds RR.

Hehe I just like the fella, always comes across as a nice, genuine dude.

Him winning is very, very optimistic, but I won't be surprised by a 5-10 placing.

It seems very close to call among the top 4-5 favorites, but few other riders mentioned besides them. Given one of the top 4-5 will have a bad/off/mechanical day, that means few teams really invested in chasing breaks, so a better chance than normal for a second-tier, but in-shape rider, who is given too much leeway, to take it. So:
1. Kreuzinger
2. Pinot
3. Uran

Rooting for Pinot though . . .

well, the Lutsenko situation went out of control, so going with long distance attack Bauke instead.

I'm pretty happy my predictions from the start of the year. Getting 2/3 on the Giro podium wasn't too bad, and the slightly unusual Thomas and Woods predictions weren't too far off either. I had a bit too much faith in Aru though.

Sorry for late reply. I was quite busy last 3 weeks.

Yes, you are the absolute winner.

Regarding your prize, I will send the private message.
