Katusha's ambitions rest squarely on the slight shoulders of 34-year-old Spaniard Joaquim Rodriguez, who is said to have trained hard to make sure his second participation is a success. After his runner-up place in the 2012 Giro, he did not take part this year in a bid to be fresh for the Tour de France.
