I have to admit Almeida is a serious rider, who can win a Giro with important contenders. But he and Hindley has given an step onwanrds. They had to show that to put them from the begining in the first line as I put Bardet for example. We dont have him now, so what a pity.
I would like Landa to win or at least to be on the podium. If he look for the podium forgeting the overall victory he has some options to put enough iome to Almeida...but he will try to get the overall and that way he can get it, but more probably he will be out of the podiuum. anyway this Giro is for for riders and Landa is one of them.
Carapaz can figh againt the eslovenians in the mountains, even better imo than Roglic, and no far from Pogacar, and Landa is at his level in the high mountains. And close in the rest.
Landa could finish fourth, but that conclusion is important
