That would put him up there with other greats like Stijn Devolder and Philip Deignan.

Nah, he would have, but he'll go for the Giro-Tour double.

What's most disappointing about the lack of ambition for a Vuelta GC here is that in the past he's got into breaks on key days to go for stage wins, or spent a couple of days in the autobus to target the TT etc. Now if he was looking to get a top 15 the way that eg. Periero regularly hit the top 10 of the Tour - by being aggresive and getting into breaks, with a top GC coming as a bonus on top of a stage win - then good luck to him. But I suspect he's actually looking at a top 15 at the Vuelta in the manner that Zubeldia has made a career of Tour top 10s...anonymously.

He has delayed his season start with one month. Since he took a vaccine against his allergy. He has feeling very tierd of it. It is one know side effect with take a vaccine agains allergy. The Side effect can be a year long according to an other interview with him late last season. That is probally one reason why he has a so low goal in the Veulta.

And Kessiakoff always say he is "out of shape" and just hoping to help his "teammates". Just before Giro del Lazio this year he told Swedish press that he had too much fatigue from veulta and just hoped to be able to race to the goal.

it looked like he would be able to finish the Vuelta on the podium two years ago before he got sick and now he targets a top 15...?!

would be a real pity if he is not able to live up to the quality of riding he showed in 2011 because of his allergies

The stage will be 220 kms long from Sillian (Austria) to Vetriolo Terme. Passo Lavazè to be climbed in the middle.

Oh, and the first stage will be split into a short stage and a 15 kms TTT. Both of them in Lienz. (All this is official, I'm just reorganizing the news)
So we have:
stage1a: Lienz - Lienz (road stage)
stage1b: Lienz TTT 15 kms
stage2: Sillian - Vetriolo Terme MTF 220 kms
stage3: Pergine Valsugana - ???
stage4: ??? - ???

A much lighter race schedule than Purito. makes sense too.
I thought he was doing PN.

There will be a galaxy of starts for T/A.
