Personally I'm hoping Simoni wins but I'm betting it's going to be Cunego. There's some great Hinault-Lemond history between the two going on there. Unlike Lemond in 1985 (when he simply complained about not being allowed to win a race he felt he could win), Cunego actually attacked his own teammate and team leader! Simoni had won the previous year (and two years before that) and held the Maglia Rosa and yet Cunego took it away from him!
While I don't think "tradition" needs to rule, i do think that a team is important and if you were hired to help Simoni win, you should be doing that. Simoni could have won with Cunego's help as he placed third only 2 min 5 sec back from Cunego and only 3 sec behind the 2nd place finisher. So I'm hoping that this year it's Simoni first and Cunego second, with Cunego losing on a huge mountain stage (17 - Zoncolan?).
What do you guys think?
