Giro del Trentino: All you need to know

Boswell also at the start after a troubled Amstel
It's an important test for riders aiming to the Giro's victory, a last demanding training with a lot of climbing and some time-trialing. It's a goal for some riders and teams. 
The start list is impressive: Domenico Pozzovivo, Cadel Evans, Michele Scarponi, Leo Konig, LL.Sanchez, Moreno Moser, Bradley Wiggins - just to name a few - are expected on the mountains but also in the opening TTT where they will face some super specialiast as Alex Dowwsett, Dario Cataldo, Adriano Malori
The route is hard and the weather isn't going to help: cold, rain and maybe snow are a probable.
I'm going to follow it for my first time and I don't have any favourite so far. I'll tell you more when I have made my mind up.

You can find all dettails on the very good official site (complete of video channel!):
