Majka's going to do well, but I don't see him ready for the win. But he's a strong contender for the podium.

I tell my on the Giro...

First of all on the route: The start from Holland I like a lot about the issue of internationalization of the Giro, but is clear how Vegni and RCS have risked much on the race design. Put the decisive stage in France with prevalence of climbs to over 2000 meters is the confirmation. There is a serious risk of seeing the Giro decided in the Time Trial in Tuscany and the stage of Corvara, in a year that has already seen involved RCS in a similar case(Tirreno-Adriatic teaches). If it were to happen again, i think that will be a great loss of reputation against RCS.

From the point of wiew of the race, for me the favourite is Nibali, mostly for the Time Trial, which can enable him to gain time on rivals, immediatly after there is Landa, the best uphill, most expect an improvement in the time trial after its passage in Sky. On the podium of favourites there is Valverde, first partecipation at Giro for him, for me is the one that has less chance of the three, but if it should be supported by a great condition, will be one of the best.

For the rest of opponents, Majka could join the fight in Top 3, same thing for Bardet.

Attention at Zakarin(It could be the final explosion in Gt), and Firsanov(Great start of season for him with the win in Coppi&Bartali and Giro dell'Appennino, also he starred in Giro del Trentino).

AG2R's captains are Pozzovivo ( clap ) and Peraud. Bardet prepares the Tour.

Uran, for me, is in the worst season of his career. Never really competitive. Maybe is victim of the bad start of the Cannondale season

Cancellara has a gastrointestinal virus, so Dumoulin should have an easy win.
