Boooo. Lead in for Porte hadn't been good, but this takes gloss off both TdF and Giro IMO

Well even with backing from Team Sky I'm not so sure that he's a legit GC contender in the first place. Time will tell.

Winning Paris-Nice last year suggests otherwise.

The start seems to be coming so quickly, and it's great the giro is going to be broadcast this year on SBS.

Hi all
Going to watch stage 12 to 14 of the Giro. First time at a Grand Tour. First stage is a TT. Any suggestions of where we should go and what we should do?
We have car. :D

Not long now!

So...can Cadel be up there? He definitely has some form at the moment, has a good team behind him, and BMC have certainly picked up their game in the last 12 months. But can he match the likes of Quintana on the climbs??? Should be some good viewing anyway :D

barry.dejong - my recommendation is to drink plenty of Barolo. If I remember correctly, it is a mighty fine drop. Can't help you with vantage points otherwise to wish you a fantastic time.

Quintana has lost his advantage from last years Tour de France where is was relatively unknown as he will be a marked man. But would Quintana however be focussed on the TDF perhaps and take it easy at the Giro so save himeself.

I remember Evans being a marked man a few years back at the Giro and it was impossible for him to get away. Now the Giro is his main goal and he has been vocal (in his own style) about his goals - so will be interested to see whether he is monitored closely or whether his rivals wont pay heed at they don't think he has it in him.

Apologies if I am starting to sound like a TV cycling commentator, must be getting excited for the Grand Tours.

Evans has come into form at the right time but I see him struggling in the 3rd week, he did a great job last year to finish 3rd but was aided by the fact that stages were cut short due to bad weather (understatement). Quintana looks to be preparing in the same fashion as he did before last years TDF so it will be interesting to see how he goes as sole leader, Rodriguez is coming back from a crash but he looked strong winning Catalunya, Basso will struggle to get off the front, Uran gets his chance this year not having to contend with a very in-form Nibali so anything but a podium would be a failure. Pozzovivo, Scarponi, Martin, Moreno and Majika all look like chances for a podium finish aswell so this is one wiiiiiide open GT. Really interested on how Matthews goes here, he has a team behind him and is really coming on strongly as Orica's number 1 sprinter, the team TT should be won by Orica aswell.

I thought the opposite might have been the case. I.e. the shorter stages in the mountains blunted his natural advantages as a good climber and descender.

I was under the impression Quintana is not doing the TDF this year, instead focusing on the Giro & Vuelta, with Valverde being their main man for the Tour... :?:

I would have agreed with that in 2011 and maybe 2012 but I think the longer the race the more his aging body will weaken, I would love Cuddles to prove me wrong on that one.

While I've watched the TDF live pretty well every night for the last 7-8 years Ive never paid a whole lot of attention to the Giro. Now that its on SBS Im keen to catch quite a bit of it - any tips on what are some of the best stages to watch? Also I wonder if SBS will have similar online setup with rider trackers etc like they do with TDF?

The Giro on SBS isn't totally new. I think this year is the first time they've shown EVERY stage, but the last few years they have still televised most stages, excluding a few of the flatter stages in the first week. I think this year the TTT, and uphill ITT will be good stages to watch. Stage 20 will also be probably the deciding stage for the race with a massive uphill finish. Big time gaps likely.
Stage 1 TTT. Whoevers team is best will be pulling on Pink.
Stage 5. Rolling with a slight uphill finish. Maybe a breakaway stage?
Stage 8 looks like the first uphill finish. Probably not a GC contender stage, someone may want to try and grab the pink jersey though.
Stage 11 has a nice little climb 30km from the finish. Could be another exciting end. Can someone get a gap up the climb and hold on for the decent?
Stage 14-20 is pretty much all mountains. This is where the action will be.
Stage 19, the ITT. 19km climb at 8%! woah...
Then stage 20 finish on Monte Zoncolan. If the race hasn't been decided by the previous mountains and uphill ITT, it will be decided here.
