Topic - The Giro Thread (spoilers, presumably)

Chris the Tall - on 03 May 2013
So the Giro starts tomorrow

Looks simple enough - Cav will win in Naples, Sky will win the TTT round Ischia, Wiggo will be in Pink after the first ITT and wrap things up with a storming climb up to Tre Cima...

Or maybe not. OK you wouldn't bet against Cav in any sprint, but it will be tough for him to get the points jersey (rosa or rossa, I'm never sure) because they (quite rightly) give the same number of points for each stage.

As to Wiggo, with 7 summit finishes and time bonuses on all stages. I suspect Nibbles will be able to build enough of a buffer to make up for his losses in the time-trials. And if the two of them are busily watching each other, it leaves the door open for someone else. Though not Basso - ouch !

Anyway, the Guardian has managed to find Robert Millar for his opinion
