Some of the best domestiques in the peloton when on form, especially Verdugo.

Urtasun should also be of use. And Minguez once was a very promising climber, maybe one day he will fulfill his potential.


Hmm I overlooked Verdugo he was good in last years Vuelta, but didnt show much this year yet hopefully he has the form this Giro.

Nope!:D Check them out

Wiggins: Afterthought, ArmchairFan, Boulevardier, CrohnieRider, filipebarros, Hedser (maybe), Jensen (maybe), LowSalubirtyThug, old.edu, sck451

Nibali: caspert, rmeloa, SprintKing812(maybe)

that is 10 vs 3!

However give me the benefit of the doubt.

Being a lurker doesn't make one fake.

Actually, what kind of sad person would make a fake account for a poll on a forum? :confused:

I like Benat a lot but that's a bit of a stretch. Basso is almost a sure bet for a top10.

Hesjedal confirms Vande Velde will start the Giro.

Betancur to fight for white

La carrera rosa es su sueño. “Yo creo que uno tiene que proponerse metas y la mía en el Giro es conseguir el maillot blanco. Sé que es difícil y hay muchos corredores, pero me he estado preparando desde el inicio de la temporada y estoy trabajando por ello. Ese es mi gran objetivo”, afirma.

One week, or 5 days before the race is ideal. And don't forget to set the poll to close before the race starts.

Keep calm - I was expressing my opinion, to whoever, opens the thread/poll. Don't take it personally.

As far as I know stage 3 is also changed, with the second last climb suppressed and substituted with another further from the finish...
And ofc there will be more changes here and there

Yes, stage 3 changed also.

The Mercato Cilento has been replaced by the San Mauro Cilento. It more or less in the same position. 8km long and looks a bit steeper than the other one. The stage now though is 222km long instead of 212km.
