Dombrowski. The only Sky rider on the list.

In all seriousness he is immensely talented and I cant wait to see what he does. In terms of who I would chose if I was betting that would probably be Duarte or Betancur. Duarte maybe inconsistent but he does seem pretty good and Betancur is class. The others may be better in the long run but they are mostly in their first/second years of pro racing and have not shown to much on the highest level.

he's not a super talent by any means. also he can't climb
That's why I was wondering if he'll even ride, I can't find any decent results. But if he performs it would be a big surprise for sure.
 
I thought the question was who will be the biggest surprise- so therefore i voted Chaves.

The best young rider i think will be Kelderman- he has gone well at the WT before, he has a good ITT and unlike Dombrowski who will have to work for Wiggins full pelt and probably not be the last man pulling up the climbs, Blanco might allow him some freedom to target the best young riders jersey. Majka will also threaten.

Wackermann if he rides should be good- also Wesley Kreder.

The fact that there is a poll for who is going to be a big surprise in the Giro ultimately means that the person voted to be the revelation is not really going to be a big surprise because we all expect them to do well. :eek::p

Indeed he can!!! Can't TT for crap yet thoug. Regardless he will be shackled as a Wiggo workhorse :(
Not really. At AtoC he finished in middle of the field and in another ITT in Tour of Gila course he finished 3rd. He's not that bad.

If, say, Kelderman or Betancur were to finish around 5th-8th on GC, that would still count as a revelatory performance, regardless of how many people on this forum predict it. Similarly, Dombrowski, Aru or Chaves climbing with the best in the final week in their first GT would qualify.

Personally I would vote for Betancur.

I am very surprised to see Majka in the front. I think he doesnt have the talent of Dombrowski, Chaves or Kelderman.

Atapuma will offer us some nice show in the Dolomites. I expect him to be the new king of the mountain breakways. IMO in the last year edition (with a route which would have suited him) he could have done a Top10 in the GC.

Mattia Gavazzi could be a revelation. I think he still waits for his first Giro stage win, not even sure he already rode the Giro at least once.

radioshack is sending kiserlovski as captain. Any idea of what he'll be capable of pulling off?
he has incredible potential but usually also lots of bad luck

Also Cobo, Di Luca, Brambilla, Rabottini, Kiserlovski, Jeannesson, Capecchi, Intxausti could be "surprises" as well. But i wanted to focus on the young guys who havent shone in big races yet.
