Spain's Alberto Contador gives a press conference on May 6, 2011 in Altignano. Embattled Tour de France champion Alberto Contador will start as favourite when the 2011 Giro d'Italia begins in Turin on May 7, with a 19.3km team time-trial. Contador won the Giro the only year in which he participated in the race, in 2008, but comes into this three-week epic without the element of surprise and with a cloud hanging over his head.
