Spain's Alberto Contador (Tinkoff-Saxo) will win the 2015 Giro d'Italia, according to experts. They say that his experience from winning six (or eight) Grand Tours will make the difference.

Contador won the Vuelta a España last in September. He also won there in 2012 and 2008. He also counts wins from the other two Grand Tours: 2008 in the Giro, and 2007 and 2009 in the Tour de France. His 2011 Giro and 2010 Tour wins were stripped due to a doping ban.
