I'm not an opponent of the previews.
Especially if Tour hunters are included.

+1 I agree

Poor Cavendish.

"Guardini may forgo the corsa rosa next season. With his fellow new arrival Vincenzo Nibali targeting Giro victory, Guardini could instead line up at the Tour de France for the first time, with designs on the race’s opening yellow jersey in Corsica."

Too many proper races on that schedule. Glad I left him out of my CQ team now if he's not going to be riding enough small ****ty races

Should be pretty easy to hurt Guardini before the finish, the Sky train in the Giro was never fast enough.

In Astana Guardini will just become better and better, belive you me. Cav and Greipel will soon just see Guardinis back when the cross the finishing line

Hey.

Does anybody know when they will make the rest - or just some more of them - of the stage profiles public? Because it's quite difficult to determine the hardness of the route without knowing how tough the hilly stages are and how many of them there are.

They usually do so in early June, if I recall correctly.
