I am planning to go see the ITT on Sunday in Tavira, I just got to book the bus tickets.

Hopefully I can get some good shots, then I will post them here

1st and 2nd is fine for me (since I have both of them in my fantasy game, but I would prefer JTL 1st because I have him also in cq game )

anyway, I agree with Ryo, maybe JTL is a bit faster than Henao

Id take JTL as well. 2 stages Cavendish, one Tony Martin and one to Tiernan Locke to beat Machado & Costa ?

Costa to put in the time trial of his life to win the Overall ?

everyone agree on that

Tony Martin will win the overall, that's pretty much a given already. A 30 k time trial to offset a 3 k climb...

And Henao will certainly be among the top-3 on the uphill finish.

looks sound.

Who else on starters list can compete for the podium on the 2 sprint stages? not a lot of household names... any suggestions?

Bos is listed on the start list, maybe Boeckmans.
