Pozzovivo will probably have his eye on the mountain jersey too now. You also have some others like Serpa or Caruso who are already a mile behind in the GC. If one of these guys gets in the breakaway in the first big mountain stage and take an early lead they will go for the jersey and others will probably not target it so hard anymore. Moncoutie can easily win it of course, but you have to consider the above, plus the fact Moncoutie is basically all or nothing with his performances.
I agree with that.
Cunego as well. Maybe Simoni in last Giro. Possibilities are endless.
Also, Possoni is out of it now and Wiggins we all know wasn't going to go for the win here. Possoni said before the Giro he wants to finish as high up in the classification as he can. That's why I thought he was a good bet at 101. I've also recently read it's still a priority for him.
Back on Moncoutie - he's $5 around places. Cofidis and him have come out publically and said he wants this mountains jersey. Mind you, logic would say he should try for it in the Tour but he wants to ride Spain again so chances are he's going to give the Tour a miss. Even more incentive for him to do something here.
