He was building form in the Giro della Sicilia, but it remains to be seen, given his less than ideal buildup thus far, if he can be in the run for the win. Still, wherever he is on Astana with Beppe the magic happens. With Pogacar out, the race opens up a bit more, but there are still Alaphilippe, Van Aert, perhaps Evenepoel, among others to contend with.

Realistically there is zero chance if it comes down to RoF which is most likely what will happen. This doesn't mean that I'm not still dreaming of a an epic sprint finish between Nibali and Evenepoel after they sneak away on La Redoute.

I think Vincenzo only chance is that he makes it over the Rauche ou Faucons at the back of the select group and then attacks the group in the rolling sections or downhill afterwards. But even this is extremely unlikely. Just would be happy to see him at the front of the race.
