Yep, that's what they're used to do in Trentino...
But riding in such circumstances is NOT what they're used to do in the peloton :)

Well it has to be a training camp for the Giro... There won't be 20 °C on the Stelvio in May... ;)
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

One of Cunego/ Scarponi to win.

I hope Basso can start to go well.

Barta to top 5.

Gadret, Kreuziger, Rolland ( hopefully ), Serpa and Rujano and Di Luca to go well too.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

The Grand Boucle wasn't just Europe's for the taking.

little androids squad:

Fabio Felline, Josè Rujano, Josè Serpa, Emanuele Sella, Alessandro De Marchi, Miguel Angel Rubiano, Carlos Ochoa e Jackson Rodriguez.

so yep the good news is rujano's injury wasn't serious thanks god.this giro without rujanito would be half a disaster.
can't wait for punta veleno

Androni did a great TTT at Settimana last year, hope they can put in a good performance tomorrow, would be a good sign towards limiting their losses in the Giro TTT

Barta is not a great climber, to big mountains for him. Konig should be their best chance for the GC, maybe Huzarski. Netapp should win or be close in the TT

Cunego, Scarponi, Szmyd, Rolland, Pozzovivo, Rujano, Gadret for the win.


Great field of climbers, should be a great race

I can see BMC or Lampre winning the TTT. Not because their team is great(its crap). But because the other teams TTT are even crapier:p Maybe liquigas and astana can win it too.

he's nowhere near good shape indeed. betancourt was one of the 3 best in appenino with scarponi and pozzovivo and he doesn't ride giro so might try for gc here

I hope & pray Coldeportes "finally" get the results they're seeking, because the course is "Tailor made"-there is no excuses at this point. I'm also looking forward to see Betancur-but I guess he'll do domestique duties for Garzelli

don't forget that they come with the kind of B squad here

betancur looked in excelent form in appenino but indeed i hope he will have to work for il killer who will own this trentino like it's 2007,garza is still sick unfortunately.anyway the last hope of riding il giro d'italia was lost when majka crashed in front of danilo on a descent before prati di tivo....there is always 2013 though

tomorrow it starts,can't wait

Garzelli will have to skip Trentino because of a Flu. So Betancour and Di Luca should be the captain, with the Colombian that seemed in a better shape during the Appennino.

It looks like Betancur will be the leader over Di Luca for Acqua here.


alphabetical order haha i learned from somebody here in the forums.
il killer will be the leader anyway but i also expect a strong betancur.

pozzovivo looked good though,i think he can win on punta veleno
