I agree, Vino looked strong in the prologue and again today. In fact, Contador should be a bit worried about that. I love watching Vino race...but has he ever truly been the superdomestique he promised to be before the race started?

I think he can't help himself. He starts to think "I can win this stage!" or even "I can win this race!" and attacks at will. He did it to Ullrich, and he may very well do it to Contador.

This could be a hinderance, or it could be a positive. If vino goes on an attack, because he is capable of being high on the gc (Ahead of AC at this second), , and the potential 2-3 minutes he can gain on Andy in the TT, Saxo Bank will have to chase him down. They just lost their best mtn domestique for Andy, so Andy himself may have to chase him down. YOu know the minute he touches VIno's slipstream, Bertie is gone.

I actually think Vino perfect course for him was last year. The feature was the Alps, which favor the power climbers like Vino more,and hilly TT.

Lance does look much stronger then last year, but I still think he is fighting for 3rd unless crashes happen.

Wiggins lost weight from last year? How has he not done a Harry Potter and vanished. He was barely skin and bones last year. Wiggins struggled on the mountain stage last year that had multiple climbs, so I think the Pyrennes stages will cause him more trouble this year. All of this is my own opinion of course.

I think that Frank missing will be a huge factor + I don´t believe in Giro guys.
