Yes, indeed. Plenty of big guns to support two races.

Mountain stage racers in Argentina and uphill/flat stage sprinters in Australia. Ideal if we get the two shows on TV.

San Luis is becoming as dull as every race in Europe. I want to see the locals plus a few European teams, not half the riders of the Tour de Bore. I have to bear the sight of Contador, Cav and co. already February through October in every important race in Europe, I don't want to see them ruin small race abroad as well.
