I'm in. First race I will watch this year. The team sky shit really dampened my enthusiasm for the sport, but I suppose I shouldn't have expected anything else!

I will be putting a team in.Despite not watching much over the last few years I've had some Velogames success in the Giros.And obviously I'm in peak form following the Tour de Romandie.

Any reason for the extra rest day?

It's annoying Giro isn't covered by ITV4. Still good to see some British riders this time around.

Spunky's Superstars are back for the start of the grand tour season, after the incredible success which was last year's TDF I predict I'll be put firmly back in my place in the broom wagon by the end of the giro

The Giro is certainly not as hard as it has been in recent years. There aren't as many silly-gradient stages, there are quite a few stages for sprinters, a few for the "puncheurs" and even some mountain stages but with finishes at the bottom of descents (Nibbles will like these!). Quite a mixed bag really.
I've got a team made up of what I hope are all GC riders but one. However I am toying with the idea of putting in a 2nd sprinter, there are enough stages to warrant that IMO.
