Giro prediction

With the introduction of the ProTour and the quality of teams in this year's Giro, it's much harder than in year's past to predict this year's podium (although I didn't predict Cunego last year, so who am I kidding). Cunego's time trialling seems to have improved considerably, but I still don't think he'll be able to overturn losses he'll experience in the time trials with enough time gained in the mountains. So my prediction for this year's Giro is:

1. Basso
2. Cunego
3. Cioni
4. Savoldelli
5. Simoni
