I know this is the year of the not sprinters sprinters jersey. Or is it? I was seeing Allan Davis on my VDS line up and realizing that he may be my only hope for points in this glorious race. That got me thinking about the ciclamina (sp?) jersey, and who is in contension this year.
Unfortunately I'm too lazy to work up a whole preview, so I though we could try this wiki style. I'll get started
Allan Davis (QS - Aus):
Last seen: DNFing at Flèche Wallonne.
Results of note this year: 4th Milan-Sanremo; GC, Points, stage win(x3), stage 2nd (x2)
Why he stands a chance: He appears to be a team leader of sorts on QS for the Giro. And he can get over climbs better than 8-puffs-less-Ale-Jet.
Why he probably won't: At some point you need to come home in front of Cavendish.
Alright, I feel much better about my chances now. So now it's your turn. Prove me wrong...who is going to steal Davis' thunder? From a quick look at the start list I see the following list of sprinters/ciclamina hopefuls:
Giovanni Visconti & Oscar Gatto
Now it's your turn. Fill in some details for your favourite sprinter and I'll update it above.
