Poor Danes. Their biggest talents seem to do nothing but pick up injury after injury.

Ronde van Flausenthurm wrote:Team Sky announced his Giro's lineup:

Cavendish, Eisel, Flecha, Henao, Kennaugh, Stannard, Swift, Thomas, Uran.


Looks full of stage wins.

Stannard and Flecha to help control the breaks, Kennaugh/Eisel/Swift/Thomas for Cav's train. With Thomas for the prologue and the TTT, they could easily win the first 5 stages. Throw in the Colombians and the number of chances Cav will get in the first 2 weeks - we're going to see plenty of Sky on the podium, I think.

Well ... first rumours coming up. According to rtl informations RSNT wants to replace Fuglsang by another leader, i.e. not just change strategy and go for stage wins etc. No decision has been made and team management is still discussing...
