Just two early notes.
That Deceuninck Quick-Step line-up looks very good for the team competition should they so choose. Sadly no betting out locally yet.
Trek confirmed an hour or so ago that Nibali will be riding. Over the past 10 years he has ridden 7 times and podiumed on 6 of those. He has been out for six weeks with a wrist injury but looked fine at Tirreno before the training crash. He also likes going into Grand Tours slightly undercooked and improving all through.
Giro 2021 Out Right
1-3
Nibali @ 9/1

Giro Notes.
Had a look at the route/teams/books etc and only have two comments.
In SA the books usually drop that top 10 option once a tour starts so need to take that up front. Would really appreciate it if they carry it into the tour.
Secondly, the climbs on stages 4/6/9 are not tough enough for large gaps on the GC so Overall/KOM punts can probably be held back until stage 13. Stage 14 is the first big challenge.
My Out Rights
Nibbles explained above. Last year Knox finished 37m-41s down. Of that time 26m-58s was shed on stage 18 when he clutched. He bounced back on the final stages and finished 14th.
Except for Groenewegen Caleb eats all the other sprinters for breakfast and he can climb a little vis Two seconds at Milan San Remo
INEOS won the team comp last year with two Italians in their ranks. They also lost Thomas on stage 3 and Puccio on stage 15. This time they have three locals.

I am apparently odd-man-out on Evenepoel. I know the guys a bit of a pratt - even his countryman and the GOAT Eddie says so - and Remco confirmed this by saying Groenewegen will get a hostile reception from the peloton - he should know at age 21 and in his first Grand Tour.
Several cycling pundits are picking him to win so I am whacking a few beers on an out right double
Giro Out Right
Evenepoel/Yates - Bardet/Sivikov @ 57/10
I see Will Newton is pulling for Bardet and I think on form he is the best at over 20% gradient in the last km - so not a bad choice.

Giro Stage 1
8km ITT is just too short to to get serious about on the punting side so taking a double and a long shot for a few beers. Plus, it's Grand Tour cycling so take a few days to study the form.
Vlasov/Pozzovivo - Almeida/Bettiol @ 23/10
and a podium possibility
1-3
LL Sanchez @ 66/1

Admit it guys, None of you have ever managed to pick a winner or podium contender who has finished stone last - in this case 184th from 184 riders. Do you laugh or do you cry?

Painful!


Dont believe Paddy Bevin should be 500/1 today; pretty sure hes gonna be sprinting and going for the PTS jersey.

Howzit lads,

I am a bit late to the Giro party due to work commitments but had a look at the route and wow it is a beaut

Look forward to getting involved and I reckon we have a double digit winner - currently looking at Carth, Landa and Buchmann - leaning Carthy
