If you're not in Venice for the start of the Giro d'Italia on Saturday, then the Cyclingnews weekly podcast episode 10 should force you to reconsider.
Anyone who is anyone will be there so we've got the lowdown on the favourites, dark horses and even the non-starters. Is there a feud between Roman Kreuziger and Ivan Basso? And if there isn't, could we make one up? That's the sort of stuff that didn't make it into our podcast, which should give you an idea of what did.
We also delve into the rollercoaster ride that Astana is having at the moment. From Tour of the Gila domination to possible collapse. Where did it all go wrong?
