Yes, that's the most logical bet. Once again Boom has convinced himself he can climb, and once again tonight it will turn out he can't

I also expect something from Talansky, I don't know why but I do.

Today is the big battle, pity we have no live coverage.
Here´s the ascent to Mt. Faron on video, can boom hold on?

Doubt it, Monfort ftw and gc.

Mt Faron (5.5 km long, averages 9%, last 3 km are 10-12%)

Scratch that, all the bikes have been stolen from the Garmin truck, so no Garmin in the race anymore.

The thieves even removed a car that was parked up against the truck, and moved it back afterwards.

Is it any bonus seconds?

I think it's between Löfkvist, Monfort and Roche. Can't see Roux winning it and too hard for Boom.

Sucks was looking forward to see how Dan Martin would go after his good time trial.
