Being crappy is not bad luck.

Also going for Blanco: Bos, Brown, Leezer, Bol, Van Emden.

So 5 guys for the sprint train, and a climber

Well considering there's 2 flat stages in Mallorca and 1 hilly, it's not that bad...

Bos might take a stage if lucky enough

Sorry, I highlighted the wrong race. It's their Langkawi team.

Bos vs. Guardini, in pretty much the ideal race for both (except those two mountain stages obv.)

Looks like Guardini will meet some resistance this year then. Europcar is fielding Coquard while GreenEdge puts their faith in Kruopis.

Is Coquard already a top sprinter then? I thought he liked hills more, if he can't beat Lutsenko in a flat sprint he normally can't beat Bos, Guardini etc either.
