He seems to have gotten lost a bit at Garmin. Went from being the #1 sprinter at EE to being 4th-5th in the pecking order now. I bet they work for Van Hoff on the sprint stages.
For some reason you almost never get the big name climbers at this race. They're at Oman and Argentina but never Malaysia. Not enough hilly stages?
I think there will be a surprise winner. Sprint stages will be interesting with just 2nd and 3rd tier guys there. Chicchi, Bos, Guardini, Van Hoff, Coquard, Kroupis...
