Yes, Quintana is still eligible for the white jersey, this year is his last though.
I wasn't even thinking about Quintana, I don't think that he'll be able to beat Pinot if he rides the Tour after the Giro, even Bardet could be a big problem for him with the Giro in his legs, I don't like his chances at all.
Riding like last year's Majka, that could be possible but going for the white jersey looks like a suicide mission.
sure but "if" they were stronger and better why not.. and "if" beside stronger and better Astana used successful tactics and "if" contator was weaker , less experienced and saxo less helpful than they were. why not.. everything is always possible with "ifs"

Vino said it would be his goal if he goes to the Tour,that it would be nice to win white jersey of Giro and Tour the same year. And since it seems he is better in not too steep climbs such as the ones of Tour, he could surprise us a little bit.

amazing how easy it is to build "fairy tales theories based on a skewed vision of the realities in front of our faces.. The only time Contador was really threatened in this Giro was when he fell down and hurt his shoulders. The rest of the time he managed his win and even when struggling on Finestre was NEVER concerned about loosing a giro he won in the time trial. you can put all the if this and if that .. they will remain just that "ifs" but one thing was certain for Martinelli and he said it many times: Astana did not have a chance to win this Giro and he was right.
I don't agree with you and don't care anymore!
