Superman has already crashed as well in the recon. That's already two of the three, four or maybe five main candidates down before the first stage :p (hopefully they're both ok)

He should be, nobody but the Giro organization wants to see him there, but he's there. It's absolutely shitty for the sport, but alright, enough has been said about it in recent weeks :d

The Giro organizers don't want Froome anymore (UCI announced his positive test just after the Giro presentation, Froome winning and then being banned would be a nightmare for the organizers), but they can't ban him. Either UCI or Sky should have suspended him.

All teams are paid appearance fees and they sign a contract: if the bring their top riders, the fee will be higher.

But when they signed this contract, the Giro organizers didn't know that Froome tested positive. There are rumors that, before the positive test was known, Sky and Froome also received money (up to 2 millions) from the Israeli organization that wanted Froome at the start.
