I support all Polish riders and I'm very pleased how the things are going. There should be about 7-8 Polish riders in Giro this year. 3-4 years ago there was no more than 1 Polish rider in any important cycling race.
It would be nice if Szmyd is allowed to ride on his own, but I'm afraid he will be tied to Basso. Szmyd is much better all-rounder this season than he used to be, it looks like he may collect as many points as possible to change the team for next year.
It's a pity that Majka is injured. He was going to be Saxo Bank leader in Giro. He has a great potential.
Niemiec is a solid climber but he has two big names in his team and will have to help them for sure.
Huzarski should be a leader for his team and may show something in mountains but don't expect very much.
But, the same thing as in F1 I have my favourite team (Williams) and I support them more than Kubica, also in cycling I have my favourite team and it's Garmin-Barracuda. After disappointing classics, we achieved at least good result this season with Talansky yesterday. I look forward to see what Hesjedal can do in Giro. And of course I hope for TTT win as always.
Hesjedal, Vande Velde, Rosseller, Rasmussen and Dekker should be riding Giro, so it's a strong team for TTT, win should be achievable if things go well. Don't know what should I expect about Hesjedal, he is a little bit mistery since great 2010 season and average 2011. I always regret that Garmin haven't hired any top rider for stage races. There are many good riders there for a top10 results, but not real contender for podium overall. I may only hope that Talansky or Stetina will develop into a real contender.
Szmyd is an obvious guess if you know that I'm Polish. But there is no obvious guess who do you support if you're Spanish (am I right?), especially when Contador is suspended. There are so many great cyclists from Spain (especially climbers), Rodriguez, L. Sanchez, S. Sanchez, Anton, Freire, Flecha, Valverde etc. No idea.
