Savio really managed to put another sponsor on the jersey right before the Giro, you have to give it to him. :D

Another interesting thing to look out for would be how the U-25 riders perform: Ciccone, Carapaz, Oomen, Haig, O Connor, Carthy,Eg etc. Lots of good climbing talent!
Lopez is also in!
Giulio Ciccone fell on training in Italy. Only a few brushes. His hand was bandaged though. I expect him to win the mountains classification. Given his Giro dell'Appenino win and his good performance at the Tour of the Alps his condition should be good. Let's see whether he tries something in the first days already or if his Giro only starts the day after Mount Zoncolan!

Johnny Cigo fell on training in Italy. Only a few brushes. His hand was bandaged though. I expect him to win the mountains classification.

Who? And why that name?

In Spanish meaning "I don't want to continue"

Not sure why the comment!

Giulio Ciccone calls himself Cicco on Instagram. Cicca actually means cig in Italian slang. Obviously, I'm not shy about making kindergarten jokes.
 
So is it an Italian whose forename is equivalent to Julius/Julian being given a translation of his name as Johnny, along with an alleged abbreviation of cigarette that I have never heard in 54 years as a native English speaker, or a phonetic approximation to 'Yo no sigo' being applied to a rider who has no particular record of DNFing?

There's my mistake, yeah. :eek:
Anyway, I take back that stupid joke and the rest is an appropriate prognostication of his chances at this Giro.
