Not with 3 stages and 90+ km overall of ITT, he won't. This could be a good race for Wiggo.

And only 55 k of that are flat TT. Purito will not get crucified in the mountain TT.

I would think he could also pick up 30-40s in bonus seconds.

He picked up around thirty seconds last year on the intermediate stages. There are a good few of those types of stages this year and Wiggins is not to great on those finishes.

Yeah, he can gain many bonus seconds on intermediate stages. I think that reduces his losses at the time trials.

BUMP. Thankyou for putting this together Eshnar. It is much appreciated and is a terrific route.

Just hoping someone here might have an answer! Thanks!
