I know we need a miracle , but I think it is a good idea to apply for things using internet and it is a very good stage ( if Unipublic wanted it would be a star stage of grand Tours ).
Trobaniello is a great climb to join San Lorenzo ans Cobertoria.

Cool

Well, if this mountainous route become reality and with all the big guns or prospects of pervious Vuelta editions either peaking for the Tour or likely to be super domestiques at France (Quintana, Uran etc) this could be the famous return of "Il Picolo Principe" as a grand tour challenger couldn't it?

Do anybody now what's Cunego planned shedule for next year and if he's peaking for the Vuelta? I mean c'mmon Lampre would be silly to not send him there, this is maybe the most suited parcours to him since the Giro 2004. But maybe Lampre will just waste their time with Scarponi at il Giro again.

Otherwise. If we really got a parcours with all these ramps just in the end. Is there anybody who see's a realistic chance that Big Phil is trying to do a Di Luca? He mentioned before that he won't go to Itally or France after the spring so who knows. Still Gilbert winning a Grand Tour might be pretty unrealistic, but hell .... so did Laurent Jalabert, so did Sean Kelly. Wasn't Big Phil not even a future gt prospect when he started with fdjeux 10 years ago? So he should have this still inside elsewhere!

(Yeah I know this is some heavy speculation )

Watch out for the worst GT route in history. I don't think I'm exaggerating.

Well I could have said the same thing without knowing anything, just trusting Unipublic
But I'm curious what are the rumours... the presentation is near.

Since ASO bought part of them, why are they not using some french climbs? that way they will put at least one decent multiple-climbs-mountain stage.
And also Larrau, Portillon and PSMartin all have a spanish side.
