Yeah, I'm pretty sure that Salvoldelli wouldn't have won the giro had garzelli, simoni and casagrande been there. I also heard that about Telekom, I guess Botero will focus on the tour and Vuelta, and maybe Evans will do the Giro. I remember Salvoldelli did the Tour of Switzerland last year and bailed halfway through, I guess he was fried from the giro which he probably hadn't expected to win. The giro is not a race to do to warm up for the Tour de Suisse or the Tour de France. As it was, Casagrande, who'd been booted from the Giro did great in the tour of Switzerland.
You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. That's great...if you want to attract vermin.
