    Giro 2022

    It starts today.

    My money, if I had any, would be on whoever Bora choose between Jai Hindley and Wilko Keldermann as their main man.

    It's a long time in the future, but good to see it will still be held!

    I think I should become acquainted with a bookmaker

    It is often interesting to look back at who the professional writers on Cycling Weekly decided were "the contenders".

    Their top 3 were Carapaz, Simon Yates and Joao Almeida.

    Their 5 "GC wildcards" were Pello Bilbao, Hugh Carthy, Wilco Kelderman, Mikel Landa, and Miguel Angel Lopez.

    They also chose 4 "ones to watch" so that is a total of 12 names on their list.

    But what about Jai Hindley you ask?

    Well he got just three words "and 2020 runner-up" as part of the Bora-Hansgrohe line up supporting Wilco Kelderman.

    A full three words.

    Graham, not sure what your conclusion was of it (if there was any at all), but I would rather take it not as a negative point on the pro writers, rather it adds to the beauty of the sport.

    Good point. Compare and contrast:

    A. Man City or Liverpool.
