Doesn't look great.

The pass through the back of Beaver creak will be the most selective?

The familiar battleground of Independence Pass will be anything but easy as riders ascend the 12,000 ft climb, the highest point reached in any professional cycling race.

I wonder if the Worlds contenders have already realized that Vuelta is the best way to prepare or if they still want to pull off the 2nd option riding Canadian races, Utah and Colorado.
Nice race by the way, just annoys it takes the media spotlight of other historic races.

Teams have been announced (might as well make this the official thread for the race BTW)

Normally I don't like Sky, but I'm really glad they will be going. Dombrowski can do very well here I think. Also good to see the Bontrager youngsters at another big race. Colombia too, they should do well.
