I've got 12 guys on my CQ team in this race, hopefully they dominate and get me some much needed points.

Still much too early to be expecting him to win I'm afraid. It's going to be a while.

Great field and some nice stages, but the winner is pretty obvious

Stage winner maybe, but the ITT will ruin his overall ambitions I guess.

Oh the ITT is 24 km didnt see that, that seems a bit long for a 2.1 race. Good thing there are a lot of other good riders who dont really have a good time trial in the legs, so that could mean other stages might get more animated.
