Who wouldn't say that? People really buy that crap talk?

He peaked for Tirreno and is still on good form, of course he's feeling better.

Is the Specialized bike Nibali's riding now lighter then the cannondale bike he used last year? Anyone knows?
For the key stages both will be bang on 6.8kg.

Alright thanks!

Nibali sad in the interview he weights 1 kilo less then last year. If his power output is the same (or maybe even a few watts higher) he could def hurt Wiggo in the mountains.
 
"I am one kilo less than last year, now at 65kg, and the values are looking good,” he said. “I could ride with an average of 380 to 390 watts. I feel stronger than last year. I know I will be very competitive at the Giro.”

It's 6.0 W/kg ;)
you'll need more to beat wiggo. at 6.0 you will barely wake up cataldo :D

vincenzo showed a slight improvement last year so if he says that he's even better this year, it's very good. we'll see. i'm very curious about it. but again those numbers don't scare team sky
