Rujano looked like more 85-90% in Trentino. Be real.

it's hard for me to put % ;) I don't mena he will be riding 30% harder in may. maybe 15% he is also overweight still a bit. which is good. he better start too heavy on the giro

Anyone know if itv 4 is showing the giro? In the past they said it was too pricey - I assume as no statement has been released it's eurosport only

Was there anyone thinking that? :confused:
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

liquigas will never take the risk of failing at the giro. so nibali will ride and or basso. they won't have szmyd lead the giro in case basos fails and basos is far from certain.

"After some encouragement, Nibali admitted he’s unlikely to race the Giro as well. He said, “The team will decide, but I believe my program will be the Tour of California, the [Critérium du] Dauphiné and Tour de France.""

Great preparation!
Obviously, he's not keen to ride the Giro, so to me this conversation is over Ryo!

Looks like Haedo will get some semi-decent support for once.

Really trying not to be bias here.
But the first stage is Phinney's to lose!(just don't ****ing fall!)
A GT stage and a maglia rosa will be mighty impressive for someone his age.
