Ferrari and Richeze are both Modolo's lead out. As long as Modolo is ok, I can not imagine they would reverse the order.Ioslarra said:What do you think about Ferrari?Will he sprint?
In some races this year he has been Modolo´s lead-out man.
Siutsou and Kiryenka are stronger on flat than most riders at Giro. They will position him just fine, it'll be up to him to decide what wheel to follow in the final so there's always element of risk, but still.Mayomaniac said:Maybe Ruffioni, Hofland and Bole could also get a few top 5 or even top 3, but other than that you've mentioned everyone. As far as I know Greipel will drop out after 2 weeks. It will be interesting to see what Lobato can do in a GT. Viviani only has Puccio and no train, I don't know if he'll be able to deliver.
Let's see how the racing develops. But I do not expect more than 4 full-bunch sprints. To me that seems quite a few, from the perspective of a sprinter who must survive all the climbing in between. Or can this be considered a typical number of sprints per Giro?Netserk said:7 sprint stages now makes it "so sprinter-unfriendly that it is a little wonder that there are so many of them" I guess only the 2004 Giro will satisfy you.
you get more points for coming 9th in a sprint, or for winning an intermediate sprint, than for winning a mountain stage - so the answer is: yes, definitely.gunara said:So few stages to win, will they even be enough to win points jersey since I don't think no one of them will be dominant enough.
Yeah, after Turkey and Paris-Nice I have little faith in Greipel, i think he'll win one stage but he won't finish on the podium in the other ones, he's not the sprinter that he used to be, he still has his power, but now he's totally lost in a hectic sprint.Badeend said:I dont see Greipel dominating the sprints, only if Lotto deliver him perfect he can do his job. When it's getting hectic or rainy Greipel is lost.
