why painfull? the last time Gesink was actually top he beat Hesjedal in a GT. Hell, later that year he even beat Hesjedal at his homeground in his own race by simply riding him off.
Ofcourse... since that year we've yet to see the same Gesink...

Nah seriously Gesink looks way more muscled than in his earlier years. Probably the reason why his climbing is so irregular nowadays.. Too much upper body muscle...

That's why I put all my money on Delfino, Gianni Savio's menthality of going all-out and the Androni Giocatolli privates to set up some strong breakaways to let Franco gain back time on Wiggins & Nibali like they did with Rujano in 2005 and finally crack Wiggins in a weak situation in the (pen)ultimate moutain stage(s). Hopefully it will turn out better tis time than 2005.
Otherwise my hope goes to Betancur with Pozzovivo, Dupont and Georges or Santa with Garzelli, Di Luca; Rabottini and Gatto as his adjutants to cause a similar situation. Maybe Sanchez could also suprise with a decent tt, because of the technical first km's and could jump away later on.
Those are my risky bets for the overal.
