Vuelta 2012 : who will win KOM, Points and Young rider classification?

I suppose Moncoutie will go for the KOM again.

He might have some competition from Froome, Contador and Purito i guess.

Might a sprinter or a climber get the sprint jersey?

Any idea who the young riders are who participate?
I think of Uran and Henao since they were in this category in Il Giro?
 
Contador will win the points, i think, and might even win the KOM too if he is in a sick form.:eek:. The GC winner will probably take the white jersey, which is a combination classifications instead of a young riders GC
 
Will be difficult for Moncoutie to win kom when most of the mountains come near the end, so cant hoover up so many points with repeated breaks and the likes of Contador will be up there taking mountain points day after day with podium finish after podium finish (9 podiums out of 21 stages in 2011 Giro for example),

Contador and purito will take it all.

I think most of the times GC-riders will also ride for the victory on a mountain stage (because of katusha and euskatel) and if that happens pretty much everything for Contador and purito lol

Thinking about it, that was pretty impressive.

I think he was 2nd 4 times and he could have won all those stages if he wanted to (maybe not the queen stage). Maybe even the last TT if he really wanted to.

Now that's domination GB lol

Actually sorry, it was 8 not 9.

Stage 8 - 2ndafter attacking on hill behind Gatto
Stage 9 - Contador blows rivals to ashes on Etna
Stage 13 - Contador puts breaks on so Rujano can get a win
Stage 14 - Toys with Nibali until Anton gets stage win, then flies away
Stage 15 - Leads home heads of state seconds after the 2nd of the breakaway riders, Garzelli, comes in
Stage 16 - wins time trial
Stage 19- leads out Tiralongo and takes 2nd.
Stage 21 - 3rd in tt (despite celebrating last km)

That 4 in the middle is just insane.
