Let's hope this year organizers won't pull the BS of 2011, when all previous top 3 riders were excluded, because none of them was italian (much help it did for them that year, heh).

Great, thanks.
Man, this race holds potential for the sport.

Maybe because it's a 1.1 race which is only six years old. I like it though and it's had some good winners.

It's not overrated, it's underrated by UCI.
