I hope Meyer/ Morton (either themselves or for Weening/ Steitna) can go well here, along with Goos.

Rolland looks as if he will be the best climber here but Monsalve will go well hopefully.

It will be cool to see how MTN go too.

Rolland said he wanted to win, but don't like his early form.

Rolland ftw I guess, although he has a habit of being crap outside of the TDF.
Also rooting for Meyer, Morton and Goos.

Will be an intresting race. Bos/Guardini show off somehow is very amusing to me as well.

cocquard has nowhere near the speed of those 2

chicchi and bos are the most dangerous

Schnaidt will be the biggest threat to Guardini.

You'd think so, wouldn't you.
ProCycling (the magazine) did a ranking of climbs a couple of years ago, and Genting was in the top-5. Almost every pro that has done it says it's incredibly hard: For one it's rather long (especially for that time of the year), and, more importantly, it's in Malaysia. Tropical temperatures, VERY humid conditions.
Don't underestimate Genting.

Always looking forward to this race, where the Europeans mix with the Asians, and some Africans come to play as well.

@simo1733: I can see him doing a top-10, but I can also see him being completely invisible. Let's hope for the best.
