    You really think that at the age of 34 with no results in a grand tour that would suggest it, Bruseghin is going to win the Giro?

    I can see an all Astana podium for this one.

    GC: Andreas Kloden

    (but if Astana somehow get thrown out again before the race starts then Nibali)

    Stage 1 (TTT): Astana
    Stage 2: Rebellin
    Stage 3: Bennati

    GC: Klöden

    Stage 1- TTT: Team Slipstream
    Stage 2: DDL
    Stage 3: Robbie McEwen

    I'm off for some Cornish sun (what another holiday already? :D ) so in case RCS have a change of heart or Klöden crashes into his team car in training can I have DDL as back up for GC and if he splits his sides laughing at Klödi in the boot of the Astana car can I have Nibali?

    Thanks and good luck 8)
