Yeah, last year had few redeeming traits.Sestriere said:Now that I think about it, you are right of course. There were actually some decent finishes with Ulissi, Jungels, Amador... Last year was pretty bad though.Brullnux said:Wellens was present in 2016, as was Valverde and the-only-ever-good-in-Italy UlissiSestriere said:Yep, the last two years the Giro was definitely missing a world class classics specialist/puncheur who adds a bit of fire to hilly/medium mountain stages. Too often the GC riders just tried to "stay safe", in that case a couple of strong riders who don't care for the overall make those stages more relevant (also for GC)Valv.Piti said:They are very similar IMO, really hard to distinguish really.
I see Wellens is doing the Giro, thats good news. He can win a few stages if he's on really good shape, I think.
