Seeing the Milano Torino performances I now expect nothing from Sunweb team.
Also up Uran by a lot, also add Yates and Quintana.

Also expect little from Gilbert I think this is too hard for 'modern' Gilbert compared to 2009/2010 Gilbert
 
Form would say Nibali, Pinot, Uran, A Yates and Dan Martin ( I know but today at 53 seconds was a practise run).Poels, Quintana, Allphillipe, Visconti ,Moscon,Rosa & Ullissi ...pedigree would also throw Gilbert into the mix along with the climbing ability of Landa


But I think sunweb are keeping their powder dry and the mass DNFs today is Kelderman, Barguill & Dumoulin is just waiting for Saturday to pounce
 
Nibali is the favorite in my opinion. I don't see anyone dropping him but I can imagine him dropping everyone on the ascent to Civiglio and even if he doesn't he could once again drop guys like pinot on the descent. Only problem for him is that he doesn't have a great sprint, although he could still beat guys like Quintana in a one on one on the finish line.

Imo Uran is the 2nd biggest favorite and behind him I'm not sure. There are just too many contenders with a decent chance to point out only one. I wouldn't put Gilbert on the list of favorites though. This route is way too mountainous for him.
 
Nibali looks the huge favorite, even more than he was in 2015.
Of course, it's never easy to win as the favorite.

Some good names could have been sand bagging, but I don't believe it.
Uran/Pinot to look out as well for podium.
 
Julian Alaphilippe as 10-1 fourth favourite is greatly underrated and I am sure that price won't last. The parcours is perfect for him and his form looks outstanding. Should be the favourite.

Wout Poels at 40-1 is also attractive.

Nibali, Uran, Yates, Pinot, Aru, favorites.
Visconti, Ulissi, Gaudu, Poels, Landa, Quintana, Alaphilippe, Martin, Bernal, outsiders.
Your post just reminded me that Landa was racing today.

DNF, I'm not super optimistic.
 
Re:

Forever The Best said:
Gilbert has no chance. He should get easily dropped on the Ghisallo-Sormano combo.
Unless he gets in the break, escapes on the Ghisallo, and Uran and Nibali crash with Aru over the top of the Civiglio as they close the gap to 30s...

That could never happen twice, could it?
 
Re:

Jagartrott said:
What about Rosa? Finished second last year, and nobody's talking about him. No chance at all?
Nibali is my favourite. Hoping for an attractive race with some daring to attack from far out (e.g. Wellens).
Rosa has been doing dom duties in all races in Italy this fall. Have no idea who will be Sky's leader. The favorites are Lo Squalo, Duran Duran and Tibopino.
