This is the stage when the absence of Pellizotti will be felt most.

Nibali can't pretend to take his place on the Kronplatz.
true but Nibali can do enough work before the big mountain to keep Basso fresh

Cadel or Vino dont have that

Most riders will be flying up that last km at.........ooooh...........200 metres a minute!:)
Anyone seen a forcast? That 'road' gets mighty sketchy if damp. (Ricco was spinning his wheels last time on dry road.)

I think a close call between Basso and Evans, which basically means Basso will win the Giro now.

Vino might be an upset for the Kronplatz win though, rest days can sometimes sway what would normally be an easy pick.

When Evans was finally dropped by Basso and had to set his own pace he lost quite a bit of time and was almost caught by Scarponi. Cunego did a very good ride too going past Vino and Sastre, as always, couldn't handle the early pace but rode brilliantly to minimize losses.

Not sure thats a good example, considering Cadel killed himself trying to hang on to Basso and by the time he was on his own Evans was cooked. Scarponi was a little smarter and knew he couldnt keep up so just did an ITT at his own pace. (He gave an interview saying if you go into the red on this climb youre in big trouble). I think Cadel did quite well after he was dropped because he looked in absolute agony, the fact he lost time to Scarponi isntreally that telling.

This being said I think Evans has targeted this stage as one he can win, and personally I think he will do it.

Evans
Basso +15
Sastre/Nibali +30
Scarponi/Vino +45
Cunego +1:00

of all the GC contenders, Evans has done by far the most work in the giro to date. If the rest day allows him to recover a bit he's going to be tough to contain for the rest of the giro

climb isn't as steep as zonc for this ITT so i'm going to say evans will tractor his way to the win
 
My Predictions in no particular order Evans,Basso and Cunego.....The rest Nibali,Vino,Sastre and Arroyo will loose minutes .......Porte will surprise everyone and finish top 10 on stage...Thus securing the white jersy....Who was the last rider to win the white jersey in there first GT?Can anyone answer that?

Weather looks good, Is the start order opposite GC position. What is the start Gap between riders, 2 mins?


Hugh

And another question for you experts ;-) :
- Is there no time bonus on this stage? And,
- Will they race with TT bikes or regular ones.

Not that unusual I think. The true contenders often do really, really well even in their first GT. Andy Schleck won the white it in his first GT (also the Giro) and finished 2nd in the overall.
 
Some answers:

1. The riders are being sent off in three groups. The first group starts at 10:30, with the riders leaving at one minute intervals. The second group at 12:50, ditto. The thrid group at 15:10, with the top 15 riders going at three-minute intervals.

2. They are in reverse order of GC, but it doesn't necessarily have to be the exact order. I haven't compared the start list to the GC.

3. Considering the course, it seems highly unlikely a time trial bike would be of any use.

4. No bonus seconds are ever given in a time trial.

5. We are starting our live coverage at about 12:40 CET. (OK, so nobody asked that one.....)

There are big gaps in the series. I guess it has to do with logistics and getting vehicles back to the start, or maybe for the TV coverage?

I am going with Evans for the win. It is no where near as steep as the Zoncolan, so I think he will do better here. The essense of time trials is pacing to get the most out of your body over the given distance. Evans is good at that. Thow in a little dirt, and the route is good for him.

Sean Kelly said that Wiggins is successfully training through the race for the Tour de France, and so he's picking the days when he has to work hard and the ones when he doesn't. If he's right, then this could be a shorter duration, higher quality training day. Or not. But Kelly says it's better for his Tour chances that he's not good now.

I'd like to believe him, but I have to say I've been disappointed with Wiggins this Giro. His prologue win was great, as was his single attack in the mountains, but I was really hoping to see a glimpse of the kind of climbing form he will need to mix it with Contador and the Schlecks this July, and he hasn't shown it.

I don't think his fourth last year was a fluke, but I think with this year's parcours he will struggle to beat it.
