Don't rule out Jackson Rodriguez. Porte has also said he will go for the white jersey. But (as Mollema, who was out with mono last year) he is a completely unknown quantity in a three week Grand Tour. I expect both not to fade away too much. Kiserlovski would have had a shot too if he wasn't riding for Liquigas I guess.
Yep. I know Porte has said he's going for the white jersey but I have been speaking to him. Trust me, he will fade off in that last week. It wasn't long ago he was finishing near last in every race, including Paris-Nice. He's hit some good form at the moment but the third week of a taxing grand tour may prove to be too much for him and he's already starting to feel it and we're in the first week.
Rodriguez - good point.
I originally thought Capecchi would take the white jersey and I'm not writing the guy off from a high GC standing yet, though I suspect he'll have to get lucky in a break to get some time back.
