Looks very good to me. In particular stage 5.
Froome should take this.

Pretty much the same as last year, just some stages in a different order. That wasn't the most exciting Tirreno ever, I hope it's different this year.

I love this race!!!!!

Froome and Contador both slated to compete. Hopefully that will liven it up this year for us :)

Vincezo Nibali joins Anquetil, Gimondi, Merckx, Hinault and Contador as only the 6th winner of all 3 Grand Tours! Bravo Lo Squalo!

Looks really balanced.
Probably a bit more difficult for Nibali than the last year, but just because of expected field.
Should come down to Contador - Froome - Evans - Nibali if they all come with the highest ambitions.

It's an ideal course for Alberto, except Chieti. For now I can't really see any threat coming from Froome or Nibali. (or any other rider)

well Chieti is not great for him but shouldn't cause him too much trouble either. The itt is of course perfect for him, almost prologue length.

I'm so looking forward to this. It has been the best one week race of the season the last two years.

Nibali has proven to be a very good ITTer on shorter courses, probably better than the post-ban Alberto and knows this race very well.
It might be closer than you think.

Don't know about Froome. Has he ever performed at a reasonable level in march?

If Froome does come, he will have as much as a 30 second headstart over Contador. Can Contador take that back on the mtf? Maybe. I think they will be equal in the itt.

That said Froome said he has his yearly bilharzia, + hes never done anything in a week stage race, so I dont think he will be going for the win.

March seems so far away-damn!!!

IMHO The parcours suits very well the Sky boys-although Contador said he's going there to win it -so I expect the 1st big test of the season for the big guns indeed.....
Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?

Froome has Bilharzia this year too?

Anyway this is Alberto's first target for the season, I fully expect him to at least podium. Nibs will be there or thereabouts as well.
