UCI: Italian Giro top favourite will be Bio-pass exposed in hours

I was struck by a sudden thought. ( I know, painful)
This may be a conspiracy theory too far, but isn't today the day when Angelo Zomegnan makes his final, final announcement, re the teams taking part in the Giro?
Coincidence?

I'm not sure when the UCI first muted this situation, but it's going back a while.

Therefore, my money is on either Tirreno Scarponi or Garzelli
being the big name and maybe their team getting the Giro boot, in favour of ISD.........

I'm not bothered who it is as long as they get banned tbh.

Don't know if I'd call Cunego a 'favourite'. I reckon it'll be either Basso or Pellizotti.

I think it will be Pellizotti or Garzelli (like a few others have deduced). I'll be shocked if it is Cunego and to a lesser degree if it is Basso. Maybe Ballan. Might be all of them if there are 5. Doubt that though. That really would blow my mind. Either way someone is in trouble.
 
A Russian? Good, it's about time Menchov got busted *fingers crossed*.

Edit, at least the Spaniards have nothing to worry about, they can just hide behind their National "authorities".

I'm betting on Spilak

EDIT: The irregular blood values are from the 2009 Tour. heh.

The blood values of the guy who has Giro ambitions, that is.

Uhm....Pellizotti?

Spilak was the only Slovenian riding the 2009 tour...

But he's not a big name, is he? The 2009 Tour reference is only for the italian big name. Ergo, Pellizotti.

Spilak for sure. Wins a stage at Romandie and then gets popped. Can't think of any other Slovenians off the top of my head.
 
Slovenes at teams down to ride the Giro (even if they're not on the Giro startlist):

BOLE, Grega (Lampre-Farnese Vini)
KOREN, Kristjan (Liquigas-Doimo)
SPILAK, Simon (Lampre-Farnese Vini)
STANGELJ, Gorazd (Astana)
VALJAVEC, Tadej (Ag2r-La Mondiale)

The only connection to the Giro is the Italian "with ambitions", the Slovene doesn't have it on his schedule (not necessarily, at least).
