Now, after DSM has - finally - napped their first win of the season, it's time to see if we can guess which team will be the last to get their first WT win.
Of course, several teams - including a few ProTeams - have already napped their first (or several) WT win(s) of the season, and after Izagirre's win on the final stage in Itzulia Basque Country, Cofidis is currently in the lead.

Will they be the last WT team to get a WT win this year? Unlikely.
Will there be any WT teams that goes without WT wins the whole year? Slightly more likely.
DSM moves into the lead.
However, all the people who voted DSM can still be correct, all the would require is simply that neither Astana nor Movistar gets any WT wins this year.
Pretty amazing two well-known teams don’t have a WT win yet. And it seems as though their best riders at the Giro have turned out to be VAlverde and Nibali, and while I’ll be rooting for both of them neither is likely to grab a stage win.
