Gilbert to go head to head with Gerrans for the win, I don't think I have to say who I think will come out the victor.
Also hoping Ponzi can get another high placing.

I don't mean on this forum, I mean in general previews of this race. On this forum, I hyped him myself

Jens_attacks will hype anyone whom he suspects is on some kind of program.

How's Machado's sprint and descending skills?

Not that it would matter that much anyway, as he'll probably attack 3km before the hill and be exhausted at the bottom of it.

Don't know where I found the description, but it contains 15% sections and a few switchbacks.

Your Sky sensor is almost as good as Flo's Contador one.

He won't need sprint

He won't be exhausted because he is at a whole new level this year




ALLEZ MACHADO!!!

It's not very accurate, but it'll give you an idea what type of rider can win here.

That sounds nice. Perhaps he'll even get his first win in 5 years then? Oh well, one can only dream.
