I thought he is a sprinter or something like that... so is he similar to Kelderman? or really a pure climber?

It wasn't your average "flat sprint." There's little doubt that Coquard is faster than him on the flat.

Anyway, Bernaudeau considers Coquard to be a "pure sprinter" who can handle the hills.

Anton and Nieve will both ride the Tour. Dunno if they will go for clear leader, I think not.

TA rumours: Stage finish in Rocca Di Cambio, exactly like in the Giro of last year.
The stage will start in Spoleto.

So there should be three consecutive stages like this:

Stage 3: ??? - Narni [short uphill sprint]
Stage 4: Spoleto - Rocca Di Cambio [MTF]
Stage 5: L'Aquila - Chieti [Uphill sprint after Passo Lanciano]

Probably they'll be co-leaders and when Anton cracks/crashes/has no form, Nieve will step up as usual.

Nieve will be 10th in GC for sure, that's a given. Anton might be 5th, 75th or 152th, you never know.
