I guess maybe we wont see team schleck have such a bad team like last year since Machado or something will go
Sky will have Cav and Garmin CVV and Farrar, so the other WT teams won't be as bad.
Rabo may be a let down though. Who else, BMC? Despite being a super team do they have anyone for the Giro besides Tchopp?

Well, yes, but Machado was there this year as well...
Because CVV will do what? Crash on the second stage from Børebrø to Føckøff?
Ballan and Pinotti.

There is no chance a fifth team will be allowed?

In Italy when you need a coffee you need the right barista, so you need to teach Chris [Juul Jensen] how to make the right coffee.
