    Fabian Cancellara:

    Do you mean my to do list? Well in the winter time I want really go skiing. That's a big one on my list. I also want to get used to my 'second life', you know, do all the things like spend time with my family and friends at the weekends. That's something that's hard to do when you're a rider and at races all the time. I'm really looking forward to that.

    Last night we also caught up with Matt White from Orica GreenEdge. He's here with a few objectives  - Chavez for the GC and Ewan for the sprints. Here's what he had to say on the young sprinter in his team.

     

    “Where he will be going into unchartered territory is backing up day in, day out,” White said of Ewan’s Giro start. “He has proved over shorter kilometres and shorter races that he can do it, but the Giro is obviously another step up. He has a big first week of the Giro kilometre wise and [with] transfers. It will be good for him and an eye opener for him.”
     

    The full yarn, is right here.

    The race starts on Friday with the 9.8km time trial and the biggest news of the day so far is that Fabian Cancellara has been hit by a stomach bug. He no longer has a fever but surely this will hamper his chances of pulling on pink tomorrow. 

    We'll have a Q&A with him later today but here's what he had to say on the recent illness when we called him. 
     

    “It’s not the best situation but we’re working on it,” Cancellara told Cyclingnews from his team hotel on Thursday morning.


    "Yesterday in training I had strange feelings, I felt tired and had some joint pains. Then, after training I went into my room and I was more a guest of the toilet than the hotel. Last night, I had a fever and it’s not the best situation regarding tomorrow. I’ll rest and we’ll see what comes.”
