Good timing kabbot.

Along with Froome, the other 'big' names going for this one are Dumoulin, Pinot, Aru and Chaves. Plus there's a bunch of the younger guys looking for the big breakthrough.

I haven't picked Froome. There's some decent riders in uncategorised.

Enjoy the race but I’m out, and out of watching pro-cycling for the foreseeable future – until TUEs are properly dealt with the sport isn’t credible. I am almost certain that the asthma drugs that Wiggins was on were the same as used by my sister who was seriously ill – her lung capacity was down to 20% of normal at the time. There are non-performance enhancing alternatives and, seriously, if your asthma is that bad the life of a professional athlete is not for you.

To be honest, I have not watched a lot this year, but I will watch the Giro and I am off to see a few days of le tour in July. I have difficultly accepting the TUE situation, but I think that cycling, as usual, is in the spotlight here when other sports are just as dodgy (tennis, football, skiing, athletics, rugby etc etc). I watch most physical sport now with a cynical eye, but I still enjoy the event.

I get that about other sports but cycling is different to a lot of those in the benefits - drugs can turn an average rider into a world beater, but even if we filled some of our more mediocre players to bursting with EPO they might run a bit longer but they would still be mediocre.

Couldn't decide between Dumolin and froome, went for both, 2 riders used half my budget, doubt I'll get much from the rest of the rabble I chose

Dumoulin was my only points scorer too although I didn't choose him over Froome. I just can't pick Froome. His very presence in the race annoys me. Plus the fact that races are much more open when the Sky team aren't dominating. Plus Sky don't often do well in the Giro!
