Stage 1 odds are now available for the 2008 Giro d’Italia (Tour of Italy). Stage 1 is a Team Time Trial from Palermo to Palermo. Astana are clear favourites along with Team Slipstream and Team CSC.
It is difficult to see past Astana provided that they have had enough time to practise their Team Time Trial skills considering their late entrance to this years race. Velotips believes that the bookmakers have got the running right.
The odds from Sportingbet are for the outright winner only
